Please note my last post...Packers by 6 was the prediction!!! Say no more!
Had a so-so weekend. Probably precipitated by my candy binging last week. About every 3 months or so, my sweet tooth bumps up my brain and screams...SUGAR. So I usually
head off , sneak to the Bulk Barn and go nuts, sweets crazy!
Now, I learned this about myself years ago. Feed the craving...in fact, stuff so much of that crap down my throat as I can take cause then I’ll be sick of it and go cold turkey for a bit. And lo and behold, I have absolutely no want for that stuff today.
Do you binge & if you do, how do you get back on track?
Got in a solid 6 miles Saturday and was looking forward to an early run Sunday and then dig in for Superbowl really early (read: NAP). Unfortunately, we got about 5 inches of heart attack snow, that wet heavy crap. So I did my groceries first (checked out my routes to see if they had been plowed..yes...bonus), then snow blowed 2 driveways, went for an 8 mile run at easy pace, got home to shovel all the crap the plows had pushed back into the 2 driveways I just cleaned up. Another hour of pick it up and put it down...but what a Fasionista I was, snow blowing in the Lime green jacket and Under Armour tights. A few stares as the cars drove by...but what the hey, not going to change to push snow.
Did enjoy the Game but had a scare like everyone about the Steelers sneaking back into it. Made some awesome subs with cibata bread as well as Jumbo Shrimp and assorted CHEESE!!!!!
** NOTE ** Binging on CHEESE does not have same effect as binging on sweets...I cannot stop when I start binging on CHEESE...I am the Homer Simpson of CHEESE binging!!!
A little excited this week, I have my first 6 mile "race pace" training run scheduled for Thursday. I have felt so slow lately with this training plan, so hopefully I can pick it up and hammer a good one out. Definitely felt the 8 miler Sunday as the miles will now start to pile up and the fatigue will start setting in.
Quick 6 tonight after work and then speed work tomorrow.... I have to admit, I like it....makes the Wed rest day that much more enjoyable.
Have a great week folks...only a few more weeks till the Daytona 500 and another season of "turn left" or crash.
