better today

Thanks to all of you who are so kind with your words...thought I would have grossed out most of you to even respond, but I'm sure we've all been there at one point or another.

I have gone back in my mind what could have destroyed me yesterday...and I'm thinking it was possibly the creamy sauce with the gnocchi and fish + bread + 2 beers that I had had on Friday night...that's really the only significantly different meal I've had. I had very little to eat yesterday afternoon as my stomach was still recovering...a little diet soda helped and then light snacking in the afternoon was about all I could handle.

Anyway, today I started off with some beef jerky, 1/2 apple and nuts. Felt was a light meal before the swim which is best for me. I can't swim after eating a lot. Today's yardage = 3300.
Main set:
1 x 250 on 4 minutes (3:30)
5 x 50s on :55
1x 250 on 4 min (3:25)
5x50s on :50
1 x 250 on 4 min (did a 300 - went 4:03)
5 x 50s on :45
1x250 on 4 min (3:23)
5 x 50s back on 50

Other WOD - 300 squats for time: 7:12 - these seemed to go by so slowly; heartrate was in the 160s and legs were a bit sore from yesterday's run.


  1. Just catching up on my reading. If it makes you feel better, during IMCdA in '06 I spent a solid 44 min in the port-o-johns throughout the race. Not sure what it was, (possibly the heat) but something did NOT agree with me and my nutrition plan.

  2. You know, I did not get your play on words the first time I read yesterday's entry. I am so dense. I am a big believer in Paleo. It only took me about a week to get used to it. I love the foods I am eating and I feel great. I cheat once in a while, but keep it to a minimum.

    I've been reading your entries and from what I can tell your training is coming around great. 7:12 on 300 squats is a good time.

    Glad to hear you are feeling better. Blame it on the beers!!! Great results on your swim & squat set.
