Phew – I am feeling a little overwhelmed and busy lately!
A couple people commented about not seeing my triathlon videos – so here is the link to the post of the recap!
I did really well last night and didn’t eat any carrot cake that was for Mom and niece Devon:
I just had tea and snacked on cantaloupe and grapes. Thanks for providing those, Mom!! 😀
I was going to do a brick today, but decided I just need a long nonstop bike ride to the tune of 15 miles. My duathalon is a 16 mile ride, so I need to keep doing the full 15 instead of breaking it into biking to breakfast/coffee, eating, and biking back home 😀
This was along the same road we did Saturday, although not the really hilly part. It was a long and lonely road today since I was by myself.
Pretty durn cold, too! It was 40 degrees and cloudy – plus a stiff wind. Check out this flag:
At least the wind was blowing at my back on the way home. Took me 1:21 to do the ride.
I had a Zone bar preride, which was good. They just seem to last me a good while, so even though I want to cut them out of my life, it doesn’t seem too bad to have them in there. I just have to not snack on them, but use them for a purpose.
I couldn’t decide what to have for breakfast and finally decided on warm and filling protein pancakes! My Winney Farm blueberries are gone already, so it’s back to Wyman’s (which I also love).
These were so warm and good in my tummy after a cold ride. Plus coffee. And speaking of coffee – Hooray for caffeine! Here is an article on some benefits of caffeine from one of my favorite blogs: Workout911
Spent a good portion of today training on a new account. It’s nice to know they think highly enough of me to keep adding accounts, and it means that I should always have a steady flow of work. Productivity does go down when learning, though.
Have you tried Attune bars?
These are so good! 90 calories and full of probiotics and antioxidants. Found in the refrigerated section. A little spendy, but I had a coupon 😛
Check out the chunks of raspberries in this:
So, John won the football picks this week, so that meant I had to take him out to dinner. He wanted Chinese, so we hit up a place that has steamed brown rice available! Isn’t that great? Hope more places follow suit. I broke one of my rules of not eating corporate meat because I needed protein. I chose the beef and broccoli bowl with brown rice.
I tried to eyeball about 1/2 cup of brown rice. There was easily 1.5 cups in the bottom of this bowl. It was pretty good!
We were going to bike there, but it started to sprinkle. John still wanted to get a run in this evening, so I decided to join him for a bit. We went to the track and he ran 3 miles while I did a run/walk combo. If only my duathlon could be spread out like that with the bike in the morning and run at night! It was weird running in the dark, though.
Question: When do you like to do your exercise?
