  • Vegetable stock (no grains or beans)
  • Chicken
  • Vegetables (celery, carrot, mushroom, sweet potato)
  • Apple
  • ginger, salt, pepper

I was carrying a little bit of extra weight during the run (yes, that’s a BM, for those of you who are wondering. In addition, it was hot and muggy. Those two things definitely conspired to affect my performance. It’s bad enough running with a BM cramp, and holding it back. I don’t recommend sprinting with that. It’s not fun.

Despite the challenges, I did the workout, and while I’m not excited by my performance, I am not embarrassed either. It turned out to be a great workout, probably because of the challenges I faced!

As you can see, though, I didn’t have the energy left to do any strength. I’ll have to try and make it up today at some point. Also, I likely won’t take both Saturday and Sunday off this week either. So that’s at least 1 more day for some strength training to be fit in.

    • There’s nothing bad about this habit!

      Yeah, I wanted to get even that little bit of sugar in the 85% that I eat out of my daily life. The baker’s chocolate was just the thing!

      • yep! i like the unsweetened chocolate the same way that i like black coffee 🙂 both are good the way they are…but can get a bit better with coconut oil!
