I weighed myself yesterday and I was 155 lbs. That is a 5 lb gain since I weighed myself last Sunday. Five pounds in one week is some crazy weight gain, I think? I guess that is what happens when your body is used to an hour or two of cardio per day and then it get shut off for 4 straight days?
Anyway, my goal is to be back to 150 by Saturday morning. 60% Protein for the rest of the week!
I used to talk about nutrition and eating all the time on my little piece of the interwebz and realized after my little weight gain maybe I should track my nutrition again and you can all see what works for me.
My meals today were nice and clean:
Protein Shake (48G)
Whole Wheat Muffin w/ Peanut Butter (Organic)
1 Cup Coffee
The Zone PB Bar
Subway 12" Turkey w/ swiss, honey mustard, lettuce and whole wheat bun
Whey Protein (24G)
Handful of Roasted Almonds
Grilled Turkey Burger on Whole Wheat Bun (No cheese)
Grilled Parsley Red Potato Slices
Hydration - About 2 Gallons of water -Peed like 50 times today.
The Feeling like a Fish header not only came from all the water that I had but also because I got in a nice 1500 meters at the pool. I have not been to the pool in 2 weeks and was afraid that the "feel for the water" would be hard to find. Well, that was not the case at all because I felt great in the water and am looking forward to doing the 1.2 mile swim at the race on Sunday!
After a nice long run yesterday and a swim (and some push ups) today I am right back in the groove of this multi-sport lifestyle! Tomorrow is our 5am track workout and then a 25-mile bike ride in the evening. The track workout will be at a bust ass pace and the bike will be an easy aerobic effort.
Okay, I have never been a track person but have always been pretty fast. When I was 18 years old I ran a 4.48, 40-yard dash for college football scouts but have never been timed in a 400 meter run (once around the track). Tomorrow I am going to bust ass and see what type of time I can put up on the 400. According to Wiki anything under 1 minute is pretty decent? My 16-year old cousin, Erika, just qualified for States in the 400 M and we are all proud of her! This is why the 400M talk came about and since we have a track day scheduled anyway this should make it interesting.
So fellow blogger and readers with any type of track running knowledge ... what time do you think I should/will do the 400M Dash in?
Thanks for Reading and participating in my dorky little games!
