Today felt great, my eating this week was much cleaner than last, and could really feel the difference. I usually start with a 3.7-4.0 Mph incline warm up walk before I do my run but today I went straight into a Cold start run to see if my body is adapting better to Cold starts. I must say with a solid week of eating good, great sleep, and active days leading up I felt an improvement. Cold starts are important to me. When in the backcountry, it is normal for me to sit for an extended period of time and then have to go and hit it hard, this has been one of my biggest struggles.
