I was briefly annoyed at myself tonight. It’s a family tradition to go to Five Guys once a month or so, and that day was today. … At least I didn’t eat any dairy!
But it was a high-calorie meal with a bacon burger, fries and a Mr. Pibb. So the soda streak ends, though it’ll resume Monday. What I did learn is I can go without soda. It’s good, but it’s simply an addiction that can be beaten.
I was annoyed enough to clock my longest run on the final day of the week, about 7.5 miles at a pace between 10 and 11 minutes per mile. Not bad considering the chill in the air and a surprisingly gusty wind.
I felt even better when I realized I’d hit another milestone: 40 miles of running in one week.
Here’s the breakdown:
Monday: 4.5 miles of intervals (5.0 mph to 7.5 mph)
Tuesday: 6.25 miles (5.8 mph)
Wednesday: 1.25 miles in the morning, 4.25 miles of intervals in the afternoon 5.5 miles total
Thursday: 6.25 miles (6 mph)
Friday: 1.5 miles in the morning, 4.5 miles of intervals in the afternoon 6 miles total
Saturday: 6 miles (5.8 mph)
Sunday: 7.5 miles (5.6 mph)
Total for the week: 42 miles
So I averaged 6 miles a day.
Oh, and despite the caloric overload at lunch, I was well under my goal for the day. Winning.
Day 14 at the table
Five Guys for lunch with a bacon burger, fries and Mr. Pibb. A low-calorie dinner with organic, dairy free mini-pizzas and strawberry. Still about 500 calories under. Read my food diary on My Fitness Pal
