I'm feeling pretty good, I just don't have a lot to say again.

Hoping for a good day today on the ambulance.

Everyone stay safe!

Feeling much better today. I got a very restful night's sleep. I heard the coffee pot kick on at 0545 this morning and realized, I still had another hour to sleep! :) I like the 9 to 9 shift. :)

I dare not say anything about my shift, as I jinxed myself last weekend!

I was set on getting up this morning and riding the bike trainer for an hour. I enjoyed lying bed soooo much more that I rode 20 minutes then did bench press and ab work.

There's snow on the ground here. The roads were a little slick on the way to work, but not bad.

My run was less than spectacular yesterday, but I was just beat down physically and mentally. I still ran pretty good and I keep reminding myself that I'm not going to set a PR every time I go run, but the perfectionist in me likes to creep out.

Next week is the last week of Couch to 5k, then I start Gateway to 8k. I'm not going to know what to do with myself getting to walk again during my intervals. From my experience with Couch to 5k, I know its going to make me better, but its still going to be different. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays will still be long runs with no walking, so I stay consistent.

My partner at work today likes to walk, so we may go walk after a while. Its awfully cold out, though. I can understand if she doesn't want to go.

Have a safe and healthy Saturday.

sorry, folks, I don't have a lot to say. This morning started off on the wrong foot and I don't want to dwell on it.

I have a run and a weight training session planned for today.

Have a good weekend, everyone

Day 2 of 3 - Eating out for dinner

Thursday, November 04, 2010

So last night was the second night in a row that I've had to eat out for dinner. I will look at the positives first:

- I made WAY better choices than I normally do at this place:
- Normal fare - cheeseburger, fries, beer
- Last night's fare - grilled chicken sandwich, side salad with italian, water
- I did not opt for the broccoli and cheese soup they had on special last night (one of my two favorite soups EVER)
- I swam 1000m before we ate (and husby went with me again to the pool!)
- I stayed in my healthy ranges
- I ran earlier in the day (and ran a PR, WOOT WOOT WOOT!)
- I had enough time when I got home to pack my gym bag and lunchbox for today

The negatives:
- I still ate out and I'm sure there was all sorts of hidden badness in the food I didn't know about
- I didn't swim as far as I would have liked (the pool water was SOOOO COLD)

Today, it is cold and pouring down rain. I am still determined to get my lunch time run in. I have a hoodie or if it decides to warm up and keep raining, I have a ball cap.

Tonight is "date night". I am meeting husby downtown for dinner. Day 3 of eating out for dinner. I know I can make better choices after last night... although those fries on his plate looked so good. (I didn't even eat ONE). Maybe I will have the duck tonight. We usually go to the same restaurant, so I know what their choices are. The duck comes with asparagus and string beans and has jerk seasoning on it. It is very tasty.

Ok, have a great Thursday!

    Hiya xx
Sounds like you did really well yesterday - you went for a run even though you wasnt feeling too good and then you went for a swim on top of that and Hubby came too which is good for him. It also sounds like you made good choices from the ones that were avilable and you deserved them after working so hard ..and again today by going for a run even though it is raining. It sounds like you are doing really well. I f we work hard then we deserve some trreats :-) xx

Wings and beer...

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

Yep, you read it right folks. That's what I had for dinner last night and let me tell you, it tasted good. Real good. Too good.

A bunch of friends that I haven't seen for a really long time went out, so I joined them... at my favorite wing place.

Ok, ok, ok, in my defense, I had a huge garden salad with about a tablespoon of dressing, celery sticks and about 4 wings... and light beer. Oh, the little deep fried protein bombs were just so tasty.

Anyway, I am suffering for it today. My body isn't used to grease, so you can imagine how my guts feel. I realized I'm out of prilosec, super. I am allergic to wheat, so my neck is hurting from drinking beer. Why do I do these things to myself again?

I'm curious how I'm going to run today. I am rest assured, there is a portopotty at the cemetary if the need arises. I should right a book called, "Running, my GI tract and me. One girl's journey through triathlon training with screwy guts".

Couch to 5k week 8 day 2 is today. Its another chilly morning here, but by the time I went to run yesterday, it was in the 50s. I will probably opt for shorts today as tights were a little too much yesterday. Husby and I are going to the pool tonight. Woo HOO!

Happy Hump Day!

    Isn't it crazy how when we eat something we probably shouldn't our bodies get cranky at us!! That's me and grease. I love all things deep fried, but my body protests every time.....guess I should be thankful for that!! How do you like the couch to 5k program?
