Scared of His Own Shadow.

Monday, October 22, 2012

12:30 - egg - 80
2:00 - Cereal - 200
330 - Hummus, Tortilla, Taboule - 210
5:30 - popcorn chips, grapes - 140
740 - half cup of milk - 75
845 - Vegetables/Rice/Chicken/Garlic Bread - 320
10 - Apple - 125

Above is my eating chart categorized by time, food and calories. (No pictures :-P) So technically I ate 7 times today (unless you don't count milk as food), and 2 hours ten minutes was my longest wait, however I was out running between then so there's a method to my madness :-P

It felt really weird to eat every 1 and a half hours. But I did save half of my chicken meal so I'll eat that tomorrow. I ate above my minimum range in calories, however today was just a low day. My Spark tracker says 1,236.

Today I did Week 9 Day 1 of my 10k training. www.sparkpeople.com/reso

I walked 1 minute, ran 5 minutes for 9 times in a row. Today there was a track meet, so I ran the football practice field. Mr Mean Face was their too. I started around 6:30, and it got dark. Like pitch black dark. I hit the track after 40 minutes because the tennis field is lit up and the track is closer to the tennis field, but I basically ran in the complete darkness for 40 minutes out of my 54. Upon hitting the track I though a big rat was following me and I kinda jolted... it was a shadow of my head so I felt better... other than the fact that I though my head was a rodent.

I completed that run a little over 4 miles in 54 minutes. 13:25 per mile. That is a little faster than my 5k time, so it's good news, but I'd really love to get that 5k under 40 minutes next week! My first interval I was at 11:30 per mile. I really thought today could be the day I got my average pace below the 13 minute mark into 12:??

I'm already a little hungry, I do believe it's the 10k training.

    I always love reading your blogs Hal :)

And I have to agree, HUGE apple!

(Sonia, I remember that show ;) I guess I'm old enough eh?)

Also Hal, I have been scared of my own shadow a time or two as well. Funny story... when I was 15 I got an eyebrow piercing. I went outside the first night and saw something black out of the corner of my eye and flailed like an idiot. Turns out it was just my eyebrow ring. I got to go to school the next day and show off both a new piercing AND a black eye from punching myself in the face...

    1. I need to look into this taboule business.
2. That is a huge apple! (And Sonia, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, LOL- I loved that show!)
3. Ahahaha! Your head shadow looks like a rodent!
4. Seriously. Run 5 minutes, walk 1 minute, 9 times! Are you kidding me?!? That seems completely outrageous to me, but way to go!!!
