SuperBowl Sunday – 1, Shelby – 0.
Surprisingly, it wasn’t the beer that did me in. It was these:
Too many honey barbecue wings for two people? You think? (Note: I did not make these, I bought them in a cute little bucket at Whole Foods. And I’m going to blame the cuteness of that bucket for my underestimation of its volume.)
When game time rolled around, I attacked that platter. I was hungry from pounding out fourteen beautiful beastly miles.
The weather was gorgeous. I meandered around the usual greenways, enjoyed the sunshine, and at one point took a little break from the hills to run a few laps around the State track. I hauled some serious ass at the end. It felt wonderful.
Hard-earned post-run shower beer:
By the time that god-awful halftime show was over, I was in a serious chicken and beer coma. I think I’m still digesting all of those wings.
Here’s how the week ended up:
M – 5.2 easy (42:15, 8:18 pace) + 3 on the TM (23:15, 7:44 pace)
Tu – 7.1 with 2 @ tempo (57:04, 8:05 pace)
W – 3 easy (26:10, 8:43 pace) + 6.1 easy (52:57, 8:39 pace)
Th – 6 with 4 @ tempo (45:24, 7:34 pace)
F – OFF
Sa – 6.3 easy (53:33, 8:27 pace)
Su – 14 long (1:54:52, 8:11 pace)
Total – 50.7 miles. Hooray for cracking 50 for the first time in 2011!
That’s all I’ve got. How’s that for a disjointed Monday post? I’ll be back tomorrow with some recipe musings – we’re having a dinner party tomorrow night so I’ll be in the kitchen all afternoon!
Off to be super nocturnal and make cake pops for the big feast….
