weight - 130.8 If my stupid scale didn't give me a decimal place, I could say I lost a pound in a week. Oh well, close though!
swim - 14 x 100M
The weather was so nice this morning! It felt like fall kinda, mid 60s! I hope it's like that tomorrow when I do my long run. As I sit here drinking a Dr. Pepper (don't shake your head, it's been a while since I've had one!), my foot is aching so badly. I don't know what I did to it this morning but I think I dropped something, or hit it on something. It's right on top of my foot near my ankle. It's swollen and a bit and bruised. Hmmmm.
For breakfast I had a smoothie. When I go on a health kick, smoothies become a staple. They take the place of one of my meals. Yesterday it was lunch, today breakfast. Here's how I make mine....
Let me start by saying that my immersion blender broke a few months back and I found this cool little Oster smoothie maker. Just stick everything in the blue bottle, screw on the blade, lock it on the blender and plug in. It's so easy! Then you remove the blade and screw a top on that has a spout to drink out of. FAST FOOD!! :)
So, this smoothie energized my swim this morning. Liquid fuel for a liquid workout. I think I can do the 400 if I have to. I'm gaining confidence each time I swim. Felt great except when my foot cramped towards the end. Kinda right where it was already hurting.... strange. This pain better be gone by tomorrow. This smoothie has some serious calories. I'm guessing total about 350 maybe. But it has so much protein that I'm still not even really hungry for lunch and it's been 4 hours and a good swim since I drank it. Love me some Smoothies. My friend Caryn makes smoothies for breakfast too. She is an elite runner from Atlanta. You can visit her blog here. Have a Wonderful Thursday!!!
