Thursday: A is for Gummi’s
The new 3 became the old 3. Again. Nothing on this mornings run felt right. Nothing hurt, but nothing felt good either. Just awkward, no pace, no rhythm, etc. At one point I thought I was FLYING! And when I looked at my Garmin, it was slower than my long run pace. I even walked. Quite a bit. I have no issue with walking. Sometimes, it is what the body needs. So back to the new 3 tomorrow. I am still on target with this weeks plan.
3.0 miles / 41:00 min (or something like that)
Then there was chicken sausage and veggie sticks for lunch.
The afternoon was a disaster with carrots, a peach and snack mix (Animal crackers, almonds, cashews and Reese’s Pieces). I took an extra bike ride (4.5 miles in 25 minutes) to compensate.
Dinner was boring chicken and yellow rice.
Let’s talk gummi bears. If you have seen my few-and-far-between movie reviews, you might have guessed I have a thing for gummi bears. But not all gummi bears. That’s right, I am a gummi bear bigot. THE gummy bears are called Albanese gummi bears. If you can’t tell the brand in your local store, look for the A on their stomach.
See the A?
I have been ordering the Albanese Gummi Bears from Amazon at $9.55 for 1.5 lbs. I have enjoyed this method of gummi bear purchase because I can purchase the flavors I want (pineapple, cherry and orange) and leave behind the ones I don’t want (lime, lemon, grape). BUT, at our local Sprouts store, they had these on sale, the ALBANESE GUMMI BEARS, for $1.49 per lb. WTF. Now, it is the 12 flavor blend, but who the hell cares at $1.49 per lb.
I got to attend a virtual wine night with my girlfriend back in NC tonight. YEA, SKYPE! It was great. Just one small glass of wine.
