It’s 11:49pm when I started typing this and I’m still 5 blogs away from being caught up again! Today was more of the usual from me. I got up at 9am and had a smoothie for breakfast like usual. Today’s ingredient’s list: 1/3c oatmeal, 1/2c yogurt, 1c green beans, 1 sc protein powder, 1c strawberries and 1 banana. Almost 2 hours later I headed out for my run.
Today I decided to push it right from the start today. I wasn’t sure I could run the 4 miles faster or even as fast as last weeks 37:35 but I was going to try. Of course I was ecstatic when I crushed last weeks time with 37:05! Splits today were: 9:55, 9:19, 8:51, 8:59
After my run I dropped my blown front tire into the bike shop then went and picked up my dad to take him to his physio. Just as I was leaving my dad’s after dropping him back home I got a call from the bike shop saying my tire was ready. So that meant I was going to try to squeeze in a 18 mile bike ride before my men’s night golf. The bike ride was going great. Even better than Sunday night. It may not have finished as strong as I started because I think I was going to have a headwind coming home. BUT I never got to find out because 11.29 miles into my ride my rear tire went flat on me!
It wasn’t a blow out like my front just all of a sudden I realize my bike is harder to pedal and see my tire flat. I’m really thinking this bike is cursed now 🙂
Lucky for me a poker buddy drove by less than 2 minutes into my walking home.He was kind enough to drive me home so I didn’t have to walk the 7 miles home. I dropped the rear tire into the bike shop and when I get it back I’m going to take a pic and try selling it. Then I’ll get my old bike fixed and hope to have no more problems. By the way I do know how to change my bike tires but they charged me a ridiculously low $5 so I let them do it.
Lastly for our men’s night golf I wore my heart rate monitor tonight. I wanted a true calorie burn as it’s not even close to the same burn as a normal 4some round. We have 6 guys playing and all taking our time on each shot. Sparkpeople had me burning 1100+ calories but my Garmin said 450. So that’s what I’ll use from now on. We did pretty well tonight shooting 6 under from the pro tees over 9 holes. The last hole our long hitter drove it then hit 3 wood within 3 feet of the pin from where he then putted in for an eagle. Wish I had the length off the tee because then my buddy would never win that plaque again!
