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 it’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 – I do NOT feel ready at all for the swim. I’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. I’m back in the water tomorrow! Basically.. it’s do-or-die CRUNCH time.
Lunch was extra-special:
I tried my hand at coconut-encrusted tofu. To make the tofu, I drained Nasoya’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 would’ve tasted better, and the tofu needed to be marinated in SOMETHING – but I’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 champions… Yes, I had a PB&J sandwich with a glass of wine.
Sometimes you just don’t want to cook!
I feel like I should’ve eaten vegetables with dinner, so I’m going to blend some rice milk, raw spinach, and ice for a mini Green Monster and have it for “dessert.”
Time to drag the Husband away from his studies (he is cramming for his second of four board exams) to watch Season 1 of Grey’s Anatomy. :)
