Wow, what a weekend. Friday I did get my strength training in at lunch. Saturday morning I went 14.1 on the bike and seem to really struggle, I just wasn't in to it but was glad to at least get some mileage in.
Saturday afternoon we went down to Lowe's and purchased a big play set for my daughter and had it delivered Sunday afternoon. My father-in-law came over around 1:30 and we got started on the assembly. By 5:30pm we were still working in the blazing heat and we still didn't finish. The project didn't start off well when I started pulling all the pieces out we had some damaged and missing parts and after a couple of hours and Lowe's bringing out new pieces we were able to continue. The directions were not very clear in several sections but we were able to make some headway. Meanwhile, my daughter is jumping out of her skin for us to get the thing together.:) Hopefully tonight we can make a little more headway on the main piece.
Last nights meal consisted of about 2 cups of whole wheat pasta in organic tomato sauce and a small salad. I have decided not to do any more races until my marathon. My main goal is drop fat between now and November. I will be starting my marathon training plan in about 4 weeks. I would love to be in single digit body fat by November 10th. I'm about 21% right now so lots of work to do in the gym and the kitchen. Here's my plan for tomorrow....
Meal 1: Organic egg white omelet, 2 slices of organic whole wheat bread, 1 grapefruit, 32oz water
Meal 2: 1 cup oatmeal, 2 tbsp natty PB, 1/4 sugar free maple syrup, 32oz water
Meal 3: 2 Morningstar Veggie patties, 32oz water
Meal 4: 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 2 tbsp sugar free smuckers red raspberry jelly, 32oz water
Meal 5: 8oz Chicken breast, 1 cup broccoli, 1 can diet cherry pepsi
Meal 6: 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 2 tbsp smuckers red raspberry jelly, 2tbsp Natty PB, 32oz water
Meal 7: 1 large banana
Banana will be decent fuel for my run tonight as long as everything goes as planned on the play set (knocking on wood). Here's the plan:
Super Clean Diet
4 Day a week strength
4 Day a week Cardio - My running and Biking for cross training.
In about 4 weeks I will start my actual 18 week marathon training so things may change a little and I will post a sample of the plan once complete.
Hope everyone had a great weekend and is having a great Monday so far! Waiting to see how my buddy David did on his first international level triathlon! - Jason
