Yesterday Shane and I watched the Boilermaker runners pass at the MVCC – Sherman Drive mark, just under 2 miles into the 15 K race.  Some were already looking a bit “spent” and it wasn’t that hot.  But good for them…they were making every attempt at the run while I stood there watching. 

The temperature was good for the boilermaker, at about 70 F by the time the race started.  Ted was golfing so Shane and I were Teddy’s support team at this mile marker.  Unfortunately, we spotted him as he was almost past us, but we did get a good “GO TEDDY” in there and he waved.  Here are some recap photos from the wheelchair, to the elite runners, to the have a good time bunch…10,500+ finished the race.

The wheelchairs start the race at 7:45 am.

For some reason, there are some people who always want to dress up..here we have a green caped cruisader.

The support team at this end of Utica was in full steam. We clapped, we danced, we sang…we were running in spirit. 

Congratulations runners!

 

Bob’s Red Mill.

I just keep getting these wonderful packages from my favorite manufacturer of oatmeal and other great products.  Saturday, I recieved this fantastic package:

Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Vanilla Cake and GF Shortbread Cookie Mix

Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Vanilla Cake and GF Shortbread Cookie Mix

What’s the catch? Not a bad one that’s for sure. I have to bake some goodies using these mixes. 
Recipes enclosed with the mixes look great. Pineapple upside down cake, Boston Cream Pie…and more. I can’t wait. All Gluten FREE!
Now it’s Monday
Back to the routine. Today’s workout:
Chest and biceps.  15 reps. x 4 sets each. 4 sets of running the stairs.  That was fun. Everytime I ran up and down the stairs, Shane would come running downstairs. Then he’d go back up, only to come barreling down again when I ran the stairs.  Silly dog.  Aerobic warm up was 20 minutes running and then a 4 mile run with Shane, post workout.
DSCN1615Todays healthy breakfast:
1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill 5 Grain Oats, toastedwith cinnamon, then cooked with water and raisins and Banana Pineapple Gallop-a-looza added.

Super Monday All!

Can you believe it is already Monday?!  Get up and get energized because the week begins again (technically, some start the week on Sunday.. not me).

The alarm went off and I was NOT ready for it, but up I got.  Ted insists I mumbled something, which I am denying but then again, I could have been sleep walking to the bathroom. 

Today was a chest workout with biceps.  I could not, in any way, get my pre-workout shake down. I ate too many greens and beans last night which apparently had not digested, at least they didn’t feel digested.  Not having the shake didn’t seem to bother me because I was able to get through 4 miles on the treadmill and a good 42 minutes of chest and biceps.  Shane and I walked about 3 miles.

Chest and Biceps:  4 sets 12 repetitions each.

  • Using the cable machine and incline bench: Incline chest press + concentration curls.
  • Using the incline bench and dumb bells, incline flies + hammer curls
  • Using the cable machine, standing chest press + incline bench bicep curls.
  • Again, cable machine, pec crossovers + curl bar bicep curls.
  • Feet up on bench, push ups + ball crunches.

Not a bad workout for a Monday.

Breakfast was Bob’s Red Mill 5 Grain Cereal with an Oolong orange-mango tea bag. I added 1 tsp raisins.  A Jay Robb shake with raspberries. 1/2 a grapefruit.

We watched a pretty good DVD last night:  Appaloosa.   I fell asleep about 3/4 way through, not because it was boring but because I was pretty tired.  I really like Rene Zellweger and can’t wait to see her new movie that’s out.

We are busy getting ready for a quality inspection at work tomorrow, Tuesday.  One of our bigger customer’s is coming in so everyone is in cleaning mode and checking to make sure all paperwork is in place. 

Hope your day goes well.
