Today went pretty well. Workouts wise I did an hour easy bike ride in the morning and then a 5 mile run at lunch. The run was kind of average – my intention was to do something like 8 x 1 mile around 6:45/mile, but I just wasn’t feeling it so I cut it down to 5 miles, with only 2 miles at the 6:45 pace. I just didn’t feel well fueled enough, which is pretty common if you’re at a daily calorie deficit. However, it wasn’t too bad considering my diet the past 3 days has been 100% ice cream. Ideally, what I would do is eat something like oatmeal, or scrambled eggs on a few slices of toast about 2 hours before a run like that.
Food wise, it was a very good day. I made a South African drink called a Dom Pedro for dinner, with a great new ice cream from safeway for dessert. It’s the safeway branded “salted caramel pretzel” ice cream. I really enjoyed it! For my post-dessert meal I had 2 servings of Ben and Jerry’s salted caramel core. It wasn’t bad but the safeway one is a lot better.

That protein is way too low – I’m going to rectify that tomorrow with the addition of a few ice cream shakes with some whey powder added in.
