It was pouring rain this morning. I needed to get in a run before swimming.
What is a girl to do? I ran through the rain! I never run in the rain because I fear I’ll get too cold, but today I did it. I was rather proud of myself you know. I felt accomplished hehe. Not only did I run in the rain, I had a great run. I time myself every so often a certain running route, more or less so I can see if I’m getting anywhere. Today I shaved an entire minute from my best time. It’s about a five mile loop, so about 10 seconds per mile! It must have been the gigantic pancake from yesterday.
8:00 Breakfast between running and swimming. I had Hershey’s sinless dark chocolate pancakes.
I made the pancakes last night.
Saturdays are my most intense day for working out because swimming and running are so close. I have about an hour in between and then we go to the gym for an hour. Then we go swim. So in reality I have about 2 hours between actual running and swimming. I won’t lie-sometimes I kind of flounce around in the gym when I’m with the team.
Insert swimming 5000 yards of solid freestyle today. Today’s practice was rather boring. First, we started off with an exciting turns demonstration from our assistant coach. That part was rather interesting-although the pool was so chilly. Then the main practice today was 5000 yards of just freestyle.
800 free warm-up
5X200 interval free
4X250 interval free
Like I said, it was terribly hard to get through practice mentally today. I was freezing cold and my body was not agreeing as far as swimming was concerned.
1:00pm for lunch my boyfriend and I made clams, salmon, and sweet potatoes. The clams are stuffed with cheese and crab meat. I like them almost as much as stuffed mushrooms. I topped my sweet potatoes with a little bit of sugar free syrup and Chobani Greek Vanilla Yogurt. I’m collecting all my giant Greek yogurt containers and holding my coffee in them. They make great containers. Perhaps I’ll take a photo for the next blog.
Then off to a neighboring town where I went on a pumpkin buying spree. They had canned pumpkin and I ended up buying 15 cans…they are out near me boo. I also bought pumpkin scone mix and pumpkin spice coffee.
Then Aram and I went to Ponderosa steak house! I’m not going to lie to my blogging friends. I don’t like Ponderosa because it is a classy restaurant. I enjoy it because I can get a big juicy fatty steak. I like as much fat on the steak as possible and here is a place you can get it.
What is your favorite buffet style restaurant and why?
I enjoy Ponderosa when I’m feeling a giant fat piece of steak. I also like Golden Carrol.
