Dinner Of Champions

May 22nd: 5am wakeup. I couldn't get out of bed right away. Out of bed at 5:18am. Naked again. Threw on the running shorts. Urinated. No time for #2. Lunch and breakfast made at the same time. Bowl of Go Lean Crisp. Everything bagel with veggie cream cheese for the car ride. Pasta, broccoli, sauteed onions and tomato with garlic salt. Out the door to make it work 5 minutes late. Almost hit on the way to work. Some BMW cut me off (almost hit me) less than a mile from work. He rolled down his window and waved an apology wave as I passed. It was a contractor I knew. He's lucky I knew him. Work 6:05am-2:35pm. Another normal day.

Out of work to stop off at Da Choppa to pick up apples and a couple loafs of bread. Home by 3:15ish. Relaxed on the couch. Washed dishes. Did a load of laundry (concentrating on boxers and socks). Goupil home by 4:30pm. We were in no rush to get out the door so Goupil played videogames while I ate chips and salsa. Finally got ready around 5:45pm. Mapped out a 7 mile run.

Out the door at 6pm. Took the first 3 miles easy. Started a tempo pace at 3 miles to the end of the loop. 22:38 for the last 4 miles. Goupil finished and I added on another 3.5 miles as a cooldown and got 10.5 on the day. 20:32 first 3 miles, 22:38 middle 4 miles, 22:26 last 3.5 miles. 10.5 miles (65:56). Solid run and legs felt good with a big workout tomorrow.

Back to the apartment to stretch, foam roll and immediately prepare dinner. Pork tenderloins split in half with sliced gala apples in the middle with black pepper. Topped with chopped up onions and drizzled maple syrup on top for a little extra sweetness. Baked in the oven for 45 minutes. Over a bed of pasta. Dinner at 8:45pm. Big Bang Theory. Bed before 10pm.
