It started out really good on Friday. I got my 10 mile run in after work! I only work until noon on Fridays, so I was planning to get my long run in before the kids got out of school. I didn't have to rush as the hubs was around to see them off the bus, but I was still didn't want to take forever.
I was ready. I ate dinner the night before and had a good breakfast/lunch. I was hydrated. I had water for my run in the car and also some gummy energy chews. There would be no bonking today. I ran 6 easily, came back to the car, drank water, chewed three gummies and back out. The next two were pretty good and the last two sucked. I went from a 9:00/mile average to 10:00 and the last was 10:45. ugh. But I did it! I finished. Total time 1:42. I think I might be able to run the half mary around 2 hours--maybe under?? We'll see. I'll try the 10 again next week.
So, that night began my crap food festival. We went to the high school home football game. Which is where
The next day we had an all day shopping adventure which meant eating out again. Restaurant (if you can call it that...) of choice was KFC/Taco Bell. Side note: Isn't it great that you can go to one spot and get fried, grease laden chicken AND fake taco meat tacos or burritos?? America is great. Anyhoo, I enjoyed a snack bowl. Which is basically fried chicken nuggets, mashed potatoes, gravy and corn. Can you ask for a more nutritious meal? Shame on me.
On to the evening and my finale. We went to the local fair. Need I say more? Can you guess what deep fried pleasure I had there?
Oh, yes. Deep fried oreos. They had a deep fried whoopie pie too, but I managed to resist. (Next year...) For the record, these are un-freakin'-believable! No joke. They are one of the yummiest things I have eaten. I was fully expecting to turn my nose up at them and think they were gross and greasy. Boy, was I wrong. Totally yummy. And worth every disgusting calorie.
Have you ruined a good workout by crappy food?
What's the nastiest, most un-healthy thing you ate this weekend?
Have you tried deep fried oreos or whoopie pies?
