109 Days and counting... And no flames today. :-)

So a blog-buddy asked a question on my post yesterday on an issue that has to this point gone un-noticed by me... Apparently I am showing some pyro tendencies in my photos! I will claim that it is a subconscious effort for my "burning desire" to compete, and nothing more! But I will go at least one day without using a flaming photo... Instead we'll use a pic of the cutest kid ever!

On to the goods! Yesterday was a good day:

-Breakfast: One Nutri Grain bar, one peanut butter granola bar, 2 cups of coffee.
-Lunch: One bowl of vegetable beef soup, goldfish crackers.
-Dinner: Two small buffalo chicken sandwiches.
-Snacks: Handful of M&M's, string cheese, and some wheat thins.

30 minute run outside, with the munchkin in the stroller. Pace was slow (9:54), HR was pretty normal for the effort (159bpm). But considering I was pushing the stroller on a pretty hilly loop, I am quite happy.

Today, I squeaked in another good day.

-Breakfast: bagel with peanut butter, 2 cups of coffee.
-Lunch: Chicken/Sausage gumbo, with goldfish crackers.
-Dinner: BBQ pork, green beans and potatoes, and 3 pieces of corn bread.
-Snacks: Handful of M&M's, wheat thins, and string cheese.

-30 minute run at 6.5 mph.
-Off to complete a 60 minute ride at RPE 4...

Happy Training!


  1. Love the photo! and also a great explain on the burning posts! FYI, buffalo chicken rules! Great meal after skiing, loots of it! Happy training! Cheers

  2. I must like the fire motif, as I couldn't keep from giggling about the picture. It's okay, for a while I was thinking I was becoming a thief. P.S. Peanut M&Ms are better for you, they have a better carb/protein balance. :)

  3. @ skierz, glad you like, and JEALOUS you're skiing... Nothing doing down here with snow!

    @ Ruth, I will need to email and ask about what you were stealing... And I agree on the M&M's!!
