After writing about my triathlon DQ (that’s DISQUALIFICATION, not Dairy Queen!), I decided to face my fear of the dreaded tri — and try, try again at the gym tonight.
Before I left, I fueled up with a Kashi waffle and PB.
At the gym, I did the following:
- 2.75-mile run in 24:26 minutes
- 1.5-mile bike ride on stationary bike in 14:00 minutes
- 0.25-mile swim (16 lengths) in gym pool in 15 minutes
I transitioned between the run, bike, and swim very quickly — just like I would’ve in a normal race. My heart rate stayed up the whole time, and it ended up being a fun workout. Oh, I did do the swim with a noodle against my chest. 🙂
Total duration of Gym Tri: 54:26 minutes. I probably burned about 450 calories.
It would be fun to do this again and see if I can get faster!
When I came home, I DISCOVERED THAT MY POLAR HEART RATE MONITOR had come back to me! It needed a part fixed, but luckily it was under warrantee.
My post-gym snack was a defective gingerbread star.
Yea, I’ve had a BIJILLION Christmas cookies in the last two days (or it feels like it!!). And you know what — I DON’T CARE!! They are so delicious and it’s the most wonderful time of the yearrrrrr!
I decided to celebrate Hanukah tonight at dinner. I made sweet potato latkes.
My dinner included: Kashi Pilaf rice, Brussel sprouts, and sweet potato latkes with Greek yogurt for dipping.
The latkes were a mix of:
- Shredded sweet potato
- Stir-fried sweet onion
- Chili powder
I would give you the recipe, but it wasn’t THAT good. The recipe needs tweaking.
But the side dishes were delightful! But I served myself too much food and only ate half of the latkes and half of the Brussel Sprouts.
And this chocolate-covered Oreo just snuck into my mouth. 🙂
Enjoy your night! And I hope you each have a wonderful, healthy, happy and SAFE holiday!
