Tuesday, March 15, 2011 Daily

Today's plan is for a 6 mile run.  Just because of the way things work at our house it will probably happen sometime after 8:30 p.m. this evening.  Daylight savings time or not, it will be dark by then so high visibility wear and my headlamp will be the uniform of the day.  Forecast is for sunshine and temps in the mid-40's today.  That will help clear lots of the remaining ice off the paths and sidewalks.

Last night I did my light stretching and planks.  I did 3 planks x 1 minute.  That's the first time at 3 planks and I felt like a noodle after that.  Whew!  Those things are deceptively difficult.  What do you think is better, more, shorter planks or fewer longer planks?

Back later with a fuel update for today.  Dinner last night was pasta with ground turkey and plain old Ragu for sauce and a salad of iceberg, spinach and carrot.  Simple and quick, but pretty tasty as well.  My wife baked some honey whole wheat bread.  Yum!  She bakes that bread 2-3 times per week.  So awesome!  Way better than store bought and we know exactly what went into it.  It was so good I had to have a little toasted with cinnamon sugar on it for a snack :)

What are your plans for today?  How did yesterdays workouts or cross-training go?  Did you eat anything completely awesome lately?

Great job on the planks! Man those things are hard. I would guess longer planks are better, but I'm not sure! Today I will be doing my long run for the week and if it stays pleasant, I will do it outside! Yay! Yesterday I took an unscheduled rest day because I was having stomach issues but I will do that run now on Friday instead so it's all good!

Hooray for outside runs! I'm not sure about the planks either. Some research may be required.
