I’m sure that you’ve heard the saying “crap in = crap out” or “garbage in = garbage out”. In other words, don’t be a glutton or your athletic performance could suffer. Well since I have a valid reason for the decrease in my athletic performance, I have been eating more then the usual share of crap. Below, I am demonstrating my ability to consume large amounts of crap by being a glutton and ordering two desserts at my work Christmas party. If work is paying, then I’m going all out. I have Cupcake Collision on my right and Red Velvet cake on my left. ‘Tis the season!
I'm laughing so hard that I can't eat, which is possible a good thing.
Once the new year rolls around, I’m going to have to start adhering to the healthy, wholesome food diet again because I should be able to start ramping my training back up and pushing myself more. I had another CT Scan on my lungs on Wednesday and the blood clots in my lungs have officially dissolved. Good riddance to them. My doctor says that I still have a lot of dead lung tissue, which will never regenerate, but eventually other parts of my lungs will compensate for the dead parts. In the meantime, he says that I will just have to push through the pain when I run or bike. I have a stress echo on my heart next Tuesday and if all goes well there, then it’s officially game on for my spring marathon training.
I celebrated the good news by doing hills on my treadmill last night. I did an easy warm up and then gradually increased the incline over the next 20 minutes. I ran for about 45 minutes and it felt great to climb those hills! Yes, I'm not only a glutton for food, but I'm a glutton for punishment too.
I hope everyone has a great weekend. I will be catching up on blogs tonight. I tried to read your posts last night and realized that my wireless keyboard needed the batteries changed. I couldn’t leave comments! I hate not leaving comments.
