5k wha?

So, today I got the brilliant idea that I would do a long(ish) (for me) run since my back was bugging me and I just couldn't get out of bed for 0515 due to a late one at work last night. So, I finally rolled out of bed and went down to the box around noon. Might I just stop to say that this was a really retarded idea and I'm not sure why I thought it was good.

So anyway, I got there and told Jerry I was going to go for a run. There was a metcon WOD in store today, but I just wasn't feeling it, but I still decided to work the metcon anyway and hit a run.

So I stretched, set my watch, and away I went with my awesome classic rock playlist killing my eardrums. The first mile actually felt really good. I've been doing a lot of single miles as extra so it felt like it was paying off. But, I took that first mile a litle too fast for me, and then pretty much died on miles 2/3. The heat took affect, my too fast pace took affect, and apparently someone was giving a free concert by the path today, and so I was trying to dodge that too. WTF mate? (f'ing kangaroos)

So anyway, by the time I was finished, I was smoked, but I had pushed pretty hard. Keeping my watch on was a great idea because I was trying to get at least close to my 5K time from a few weeks ago and so I was able to keep myself going. My final time was 32:26, which I know is very slow, but given the heat and the fact that I'm just that slow of a runner, I thought I did pretty well.

Starting weight today: 165.7 (I'm sure this must be a fluke as I weighed later than normal AND since it's down nearly 3 lbs already.)


2 blocks carbs from 2 C. diced strawberries
3 blocks fat from 3 Tbsp. of dry roasted slivered almonds
1 block protein from 1/2 C. yogurt
2 blocks protein from 2 1 oz string cheese


Roasted turkey on croissant with field greens salad

1 block fat from dressing
1 block fat from Avacado slices
1 block fat from tomato pesto
3 blocks protein from turkey
1/4 block carbs from salad
3 blocks carbs from 3/4 of croissant

Note: I got immensely sick to my stomach after eating this, but I'm pretty sure it's a product of the run. I gassed myself pretty good on the run today and I think it wreaked havoc on my system. Because I felt so poorly I went home immediately and laid in bed. I did not even want to THINK about a snack today.


KSB Margarita chicken

Note: I started to feel better at work and became ravenous. Ate a dinner that was more blocks than normal.

4 blocks protein from chicken (seasoned with lime and paprika)
4 blocks fat from butter/evoo in side dishes
3 blocks carbs from mashed potatoes
1 block carbs from cooked carrot/broccoli mixture

Bad things: I drank sweet tea. :( And forgot my snack again. Headaches are starting, but this is also a good thing. It means that my sugar levels are dropping and my body doesn't know what to do. It hurts, but it's a good thing.

Good things: I tried to drink Coke and it was so sweet I nearly puked. The detox must be starting to work. Now I just need to stay away from the sweet tea. Other good thing, I had no coffee today. Headaches started today, but that is good because it means my body is beginning to adjust to the loss of the extra sugar I've been inhaling. 2-3 more weeks and I should be in a much better place (sugar wise).
