A day of rest. Not that I need it or anything, but yesterday I just finished my personal best distance. Oddly enough, or maybe not, I’m not sore at all in the places I would expect to be sore.
The Post-Run Body Checklist:
- Left foot. Fine.
- Right foot. Fine with a little outer edge something, but not enough to call the doctor. Probably enough to keep an eye on it because I might need a different type of doctor, a shoe doctor. A trip to Fleet Feet is probably on the horizon.
- Both knees. Nothing more than usual, so fine.
- Lower back. Nothing to mention
After church, we have lunch plans with our good friend at a local breakfast spot (they serve all day, but it’s a breakfast spot for sure). Their french toast has won BEST FRENCH TOAST in town probably 10 years in a row. I once asked how they prepare it and the guy literally lit up when he told me, “It’s a 3-step process. First they soak it overnight. Then they bake it. Then they grill it.” No wonder they win year-after-year. Why am I talking about this? Because after burning nearly 1,900 calories yesterday, I will enjoy every bite. Well, enjoy every shared bite with my wife, but that’s how we roll. And by the way, they use french bread versus that typical white slice loaf bread.
Besides, I eat an Herbalife Shake every morning which gives me plenty of calorie-leeway and an excuse to play with my food choices throughout the day. This morning was no different and I only wish I could have you try my morning smoothie. Tastes nothing like those sugary-icees they serve at Jamba Juice and other competitors. They use mostly juice and sorbets — I use mostly real fruit and real veggies.
Adding an extra scoop of Herbalife Protein Powder has made a difference in my energy level until my next meal. And duh, the instructions actually say 2 scoops and I was only doing one. At least I’m taking Herbalife24 Restore before I go to sleep as directed, at least I’m hoping I read that correctly.
Life lesson #98 — Instructions can instruct, but only if you read them.
Morning weight = 172.5
- Great lunch with great people, but with the best french toast in the world, it would be a great lunch with not-so-great people.
