I’m so so excited for this weekend! Read on to find out why. But first, a quick recap of my eats so far for today:
Breakfast Quinoa with Almond Butter, Chopped Apple, Cacao Nibs and less than a teaspoon of maple syrup. I realized partway into class that I didn’t have a picture, and it would be awkward to take one in the middle of such a small lecture.
Between classes, I did a training ride on my bike since I didn’t get to it last night. My stats:
10.0 miles, 43:33 minutes.
After that, I was starving!
A kiwi. I didn’t eat the skin this time, but scooped out the flesh with a spoon instead. I like it so much better this way!
An apple and cheddar quesadilla on a whole wheat tortilla. Yum!
Later, I plan on munching on these veggies and hummus:
Am I Insane?!
You already know that Dan and I are doing the Tyranena Oktoberfest Bike Ride to benefit Tomorrow’s Hope, which “supports organizations that help anyone who is touched by a life-limiting disease. This includes Alzheimers, cancer, diabetes, heart connditions, kidney or liver disease, Niemann-Pick disease and more.” (from Tomorrow’s Hope website). We will be biking 46 miles on Saturday.
As if that wasn’t enough of a workout for the weekend, I also decided to sign up for a 5K today that is on Sunday morning. This one benefits the Literacy Network, “a not-for-profit organization committed to providing basic literacy services to adults and families in Dane County so they may achieve their employment, education and family goals.”
Doing two big races in one weekend may seem crazy, but I’m so excited for it! I never thought I’d be able to run a 5K OR bike 46 miles, and now I’m doing both within 24 hours of each other. I get giddy and happy whenever I think about how far I’ve come since May in my fitness, and I want to prove to myself that I can do this. So on that note, wish me luck!
