Happily, I am not as sore/stiff as I thought I would be!  My Metric Century Bike Race (click here for the fun recap) was very challenging, and I could definitely feel the effects of 60 miles last night!


I start Physical Therapy for my knee tomorrow, so I took off this morning from any form of exercise except stretching.  I want to be the best PT patient ever!


Breakfast was simple.  Hey, it’s Monday!


PB toast with a sliced banana.  The PB was super special because it’s from Trader Joe’s in California… Meghann brought it home with her for me! Yay!


Plus, coffee with STEVIA!


Mmm! I have been meaning to re-order Stevia off our website forever but I kept forgetting.  I love Stevia in coffee — it’s such a great natural sweetener, and I missed my sweet coffee!


Off to work I go!

    That dog looks a lot like I do right now…

  • Leah @ Simply Fabulous June 15, 2009, 4:17 am

    Loved your recap!! It looks like you had such a blast with your Dad.

    Your breakfast is definitely one of my go-to meals. I can't get enough of pb and banana but sometimes I find it I eat TOO much pb I start to get a little junk in the trunk. For me, too much of a good thing- is not a good thing 🙂

    Funny dog!

  • Erica June 15, 2009, 4:22 am

    Congrats on the race! You rock!! You know I'm loving that bulldog 😉

  • Christina June 15, 2009, 4:36 am

    I loved your recap! Congrats again 🙂

    My leg has been bothering me a lot in the past week or two and thinking of your hiatus is really helping me to stay away from exercise for a little bit. It's so hard though – Your hiatus posts are much appreciated!

    The doggy feels my pain. I got up at 4:45am this morning after a restless sleep. It's going to be a looooooooong one 🙂

    That's so great you aren't that sore!! EXCELLENT!!

    Have a good one!

  • Sammie June 15, 2009, 5:33 am

    Congrats on your awesome ride!!! I think it is great that you and your dad are biking pals. So glad to hear that you are not sore. Have a great day Caitlin.

  • Anna June 15, 2009, 5:42 am

    sounds like a good run, I'm glad you don't need to be peeled off the floor today. That dog pic is hilar!

  • Anna June 15, 2009, 5:42 am

    and by run, I meant ride. Whoops.

  • recipesforcreativity June 15, 2009, 6:11 am

    That dog makes me laugh…

  • Brandi June 15, 2009, 6:30 am

    congrats on the ride! I'm just catching up on the recap, but it sounds like it was a great race and so awesome that you and your Dad did that together.

    I'm glad you're not super sore today! I was wondering how you would be feeling.

  • meg June 15, 2009, 6:39 am

    I made the switch to stevia in my coffee a couple months ago and I love it!

    Good luck with PT!

  • K from ksgoodeats June 15, 2009, 6:49 am

    I hope PT goes well – I'm excited to hear about it being a future PT and all 🙂

    Congrats on your bike race! That is awesome!
    Can I ask you a question about your trail run?
    I just found out that there is a 3 mile trail run in my area (the run is in the New Orleans area, but a bit outside of town) in Mid-July. I'm thinking about running in it, but I am nervous about the idea of tackling a trail run in the middle of the summer. The distance isn't a problem (I've run a 10K and a 5K race, and my usual runs are between 3 and 6 miles) but I am worried about the endurance aspect of it.I started running regularly in January, so I also haven't really dealt with running in July in New Orleans yet.
    Did you train any differently for your trail run? Did you wear your regular running shoes?
    I'd love any advice you can offer! Thanks!

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point June 15, 2009, 7:08 am

    Gentlewoman – I think you can definitely do it! Is the trail shaded? That will help with the heat a lot! If you can do a 10K, a 5K trail race won't be much harder, depending on the ruggedness of the terrain. I would invest in a hydration belt or a CamelBak because there might not be any aid stations on the trail. I didn't do much training on trails (actually, none) but it would help you feel mentally prepred if you can even do one or two runs on a trail. I wore my regular shoes and just tied them tight for some extra stability! You can do it!

    That dog cartoon is hilarious!!
    Again, congrats on the race!
    Good luck at PT tomorrow!

  • Jenn Eats Nutritiously Now June 15, 2009, 1:49 pm

    Always a good breakfast.

  • Katherine June 15, 2009, 2:21 pm

    Nut butter/banana toast really is one of the best breakfasts out there, in my opinion 🙂 Great idea to take the day off from exercise – you'll be a wonderful PT patient!
