It’s official: I suck at bowling. 😉
I always ‘try’ to aim for 100 when I bowl and sadly out of 2 games I got a 72 and an 88.. sigh… at least it was a fun night anyways. 🙂
I started the evening off with a yummy prepared at home meal.
I made an egg salad sandwich using Jenna’s Oatmeal Bread.
In the Egg Salad I had:
- 2 Hard Boiled Eggs
- Honey Mustard
- Fat Free Mayo
- Buffalo Sauce
It was a very yummy mixture and the perfect sammy.
On the side I had some Rutabaga Fries with Ketchup.
I could not resist another one of Tami’s Whoopee Pies for dessert. 🙂
Seriously these thing are to die for!
Then I met my Twin Bro and his friend, Stephen, for a night of bowling at Firkin Kegler.
While we waited for our lane I enjoyed a Shock Top.
We had fun playing photo shoot while bowling.
My Twin Bro and I split a Black And Tan while bowling.
I had a really great time with the Twin Bro and Stephen! Too bad they don’t live in Orlando permantly! There’s nothing like being goofy and not caring around family.
After bowling I totally crashed in preparation for the 12 mile run Caitlin talked me into running this morning.
Before the run I had two pieces of Oatmeal Bread Toast which I slathered with Cashew Butter, Blueberries and Strawberries.
I have found the combination of bread, nut butter and fruit to be the perfect long run fuel.
We met bright and early at Wekiva Trail to knock out the 12 miles in preparation for our races next weekend.
It had been a while since I had done a run over 10 miles so I was very thankful to have a buddy to run with. When we got bored of the run we would talk and when I got into the zone and started pacing 8:30 when I should not have at mile 8 Caitlin told me to calm down and slow it up.
At the turn around point at mile 6 I tried the Watermelon Luna Moons Caitlin had given me for my birthday.
It was my first time trying a mid run fuel snack and I have to say I enjoyed it. Having that extra boost of sugar really helped me run those last few miles.
I really felt great the whole run and am beyond pumped for next weekend. At the end I sprinted the last .1 miles at 6:30 pace and felt like I could have kept going farther. I so want to break the 2 hour mark at the half!
Here are the stats:
Distance: 12 miles
Total Calories Burned: 1169
Average pace: 9:57
Average Heart Rate: 158
With over a 1000 calorie deficit it seems pretty obvious that I was ready to eat as soon as I walked in the door.
Melissa had talked me into buying this protein shake powder a couple of weeks ago and I figured this would be the perfect time to try it.
I added the Hemp Protein Mix, Milk, Ice, Peanut Butter, Strawberries and Blueberries to the blender and ended up with a yummy chocolate shake.
I was impressed. I’ve never really tried protein mixes before, but I have to say this one was not bad at all.
I also had a small bowl of Kashi Honey Sunshine and Blueberries on the side.
Now I need to shower and drive across town to my cousin’s daughter’s baptism. She already sent me a text message that her Dad made cupcakes that ‘are totally blog worthy’ so I can’t wait! I need to fill that 1000 calorie deficit after all. 😉
