Happy Tuesday! I have tomorrow off, but have a PB & Jam packed day so let’s get to it!
I am finally going to go swimming today so I kept my morning workout to a plank and a short walk and talk on the phone. I’m super scared about looking dumb attempting to swim so I wanted to save my energy.
Since I am so intimidated by the pool I decided to ask for some help. Remember a while back when I led those exercise walks in Dana Point?
I asked her what I should bring to the pool and she mentioned something I’ve never even heard of! I’m in trouble.
I also cut my walk short because I was hungry. The usual plus cherries…
I recently got a copy of Fitness for Geeks to review. I’ve been going through it and like how it’s an easy read, but super informative.
But I came across an alarming section last night – “Fructose appears similar in terms of its negative effects on the live to booze or ethanol… avoid munching on commercial apples or watermelon all throughout the day.”
I know I eat way too much watermelon. I can easily put away an entire huge melon in 2 days (and that’s pacing myself). I don’t know if it’s because I’m sugar sensitive or what, but it’s so hard for me to stop once I have it in the house – just like cereal or a similar food. Just because it’s fruit doesn’t make it okay. I need to be better about portion control with my favorite food.
Although, I wouldn’t really mind death by watermelon
Anyone running a 4th of July race tomorrow? I know my city has a 5k, but I had planned on running longer so I’m not sure what I should do.
If you want to find a local race check out your community newspaper or city’s website.
You can also find races on RunningIntheUSA.com
