Ran a 800m today. 2:40. Not nearly good enough! The first lap was terrible for some reason, coming in at ~1:25, the second one was much better.
In regard to weight gain, I reweighed myself last night (at my usual time, after I've eaten fully), and came in at 170 pounds. A few weeks ago I weighed ~178. It seems I've been slimming down significantly with Paleo/IF, and I have been able to tell the difference.

Wow. I tested my 8RM deadlift today and managed to hit 235. That's much better than I had expected... Maybe next week I'll test my 1RM too.
