    Good workout!
    I agree on quality over ££ – sometimes it is worth spending that bit extra. There’s no point buying it if you don’t enjoy it!
    Have a good day 🙂

    If you are ready to replace your Garmin, amazon.com’s Deal of the Day today is the Forerunner 305 for only $125. Just click on “Today’s Deals” on the home page.

    I totally agree about spending more for the good stuff. Some things are just “worth it.”

    Brick workouts do sound hard! And I agree, the extra money is definitely worth it with certain things, yogurt being one of them. I practically live off of Greek yogurt and it’s expensive but I like it SO much better than regular yogurt!

    Agreed- stoyfield is the best! At least when it comes to non Greek yogurts:)

    Good job on your brick!! I can’t wait to read all about the TRI, how exciting!!

    I thought I’d let you know that the Garmin 305 is only $125 on Amazon right now with free shipping… I can’t believe how much they’ve come down! Had I only known….

    Have a great relaxing day!!

    Your breakfast looks amazing, so nice to have a boy cook for you! Until you are with a garmin again you could use Mapmyrun to look at mileage and mentally have an idea where the .5, 1, 1.5 mi, etc markers are and just wear a regulator watch and do the calculations. I know, a little more time involved but it would give you an idea?

      I used to use mapmyrun.com back in the day and loved it, but now that i’m not using it regularly I’ve been lazy at looking at routes.

    I am not a huge fan of that 365 yogurt, either. There’s a brand called Mountain High made locally here near Denver, it’s always cheaper than Stonyfield or the other “name brands,” and while it’s not organic, there’s no RGBH–every time I stray away I am also disappointed!

    I have learned sometimes it is better to pay a little more for the good stuff. There are certain things I will splurge on, even if I don’t like spending the extra money.

    I’ve learned that you definitely have to splurge on good yogurt – totally worth the $$!

    Have fun relaxing with Derek today!

    I know what you mean about the brick workouts being killer! I have only had two so far and they pretty much wipe me out and I feel like I’m trying to “recover” the rest of the day (by eating & sleeping lots). Good luck with your tri!!!

    Amazing workout! I can only imagine how lead-like your legs felt during the run!
    That’s so sweet bf made breakfast for you like that and had it waiting! 🙂 It looks very good!
    Generic brands are definitely hit and miss. Sometimes I actually prefer the generic brand with certain things, but it definitely requires testing things.

    I love just throwing random veggies in eggs.

    Congrats on your BRICK! That is a huge accomplishment.

    I love bricks! I noticed though that you don’t have a little bike bag with a flat tire kit in there – unless you carry it in your jersey? Definitely a must have in case you get a flat!
