Bicycle races are coming your way!
I had another great bike ride tonight per the Metric Century/Triathlon Training Plan. In fact, it was such a good ride that I did 12.1 miles instead of the obligatory 10! And I was fast (well, faster than last time).
Running Hiatus Workout #12
- Duration: 55 minutes
- Distance: 12.1 miles
I’m lovin’ the bicycle, by the way! It was especially hot in Florida today, and an afternoon run would’ve been out of the question. My bike ride was so windy and cool… I loved it.
Here are the afternoon eats. I was a total grazer today! But at least I kept it healthy. 🙂
I had a chocolate chip Z-Bar around 1:30.
Immediately following by dark organic chocolate!
Around 3:30, I just needed something to CHEW! I wanted gum, but I was out… so grapes did the trick.
And at 4:30, I made my Green Monster of the day:
Today’s Green Monster contained:
- 1 cup almond breeze (unsweet)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 banana
- 2 cups kale
- 1 tablespoon flax
The GM was larger than normal because I added 1/2 cup water. I wanted to see what it tasted like when I thinned it out a little. The verdict? Still delish, and I don’t really have a preference.
My post-bike race dinner was an ode to Cinco De Mayo. It’s a shame I’m not drinkin’ a 6-pack of Corona right now, but this will do:
I had 1 cup (measured dry) whole wheat pasta sprinkled with a little shredded cheddar cheese.
On the side, I had a stir-fry combo of broc, green pepper, red onion, and black beans.
Off to write some birthday thank-you cards!
Have a wonderful evening!
