MANY thanks to everyone who entered or tweeted/blogged about the Garmin 305 Raffle for the Livestrong Foundation. I really appreciate it! You have until Thursday to enter the raffle.
I had a VERY busy work day, which worked out well because itâ€™s also a rest day. I had an absolutely insane training schedule last week. In fact, it was probably the hardest workout week of my life:
- Ran 18.5 miles
- Swam 3,750 meters
- Biked 43.0 miles
- Lifted twice
The Olympic triathlon is in 19 days, and to be honest â€“ I do NOT feel ready at all for the swim. Iâ€™ve got the bike and run in the bag, though. That makes me feel better! To help prepare for the swim, I am going to do an open water swim as soon as I get my wetsuit. I also need to continue to put time in the pool. Iâ€™m back in the water tomorrow! Basically.. itâ€™s do-or-die CRUNCH time.
Lunch was extra-special:
I tried my hand at coconut-encrusted tofu. To make the tofu, I drained Nasoyaâ€™s pre-cubed extra firm tofu and coated it in ground flax, cinnamon, and unsweetened coconut. Then, I baked it at 400 for 20 minutes.
It was pretty good, but I think sweetened coconut wouldâ€™ve tasted better, and the tofu needed to be marinated in SOMETHING â€“ but Iâ€™m not sure what. I dipped the tofu in some teriyaki ginger sauce and had whole wheat cous cous and sugar snap peas on the side.
Afternoon snacks included an orange and fake organic Cheerios:
And dinner was pretty much the dinner of championsâ€¦ Yes, I had a PB&J sandwich with a glass of wine.
Sometimes you just donâ€™t want to cook!
I feel like I shouldâ€™ve eaten vegetables with dinner, so Iâ€™m going to blend some rice milk, raw spinach, and ice for a mini Green Monster and have it for â€œdessert.â€
Time to drag the Husband away from his studies (he is cramming for his second of four board exams) to watch Season 1 of Greyâ€™s Anatomy. :)
