session 97 (per twitter): 3.0mi at 6.1mph --> 29m14s. There's your 30-minute 5K, and Marine-class cardio fitness in one swoop. OORAH weigh-out: 187#. I got lazy about keeping up my fitness log spreadsheet, so I got that current just now. (While I think of it, it'd be handy to start logging weighs, wouldn't it?) Some stats of interest: I averaged a "gym day" per 2.92 days, probably more like 2.3-2.5 if you lop off my slow start in Jun-Jul 2011 and the 2-week Xmas break. Of these 97 recorded fitness sess...

first real cooking at cascade posted: Fri 2012-04-06 19:13:07 tags: what I'm eating
Brown rice and chickpeas for my first non-take-out, non-microwaved hot meal at Casa Cascade. Figure I moved in here Jan 12, so it's been a week short of 3 months that I haven't had a hot meal at home that wasn't microwave burritos, lean pockets, Subway, or lately, Pizza Hutt. Oh, and once I had an overpriced stromboli from the indie pizza place across the highway. For my next trick, I'll transition from chickpeas to pinto beans, and start adding in some frozen spinach and broccoli.

After a large-ish sushi lunch which I didn't really finish til around 2PM, my client closed up for the Easter/Passover weekend early at 3PM. So in light of where I was, digestively speaking, when I got on the 'mill at 3:30ish, 3.3mi in 38m10s isn't bad at all. First mile at 6.3mph, a bit over 2.5 laps cooldown, and the rest (i.e., ~1.75mi) at 6.1mph.

Had an ADHD sort of morning and ended up giving any sort of breakfast a miss, other than coffee and vitamins. Had a few slugs of V8 before hitting the gym for session 95 part 1: a couple of sub-optimal Cybex circuits. Checked my PO box (empty) and got an egg+cheese and a big unsweet iced tea. I was never an iced tea fan until this year, but I wanted to cut back on my two-a-day caffeine habit, yet I'm manifestly incapable of driving thru Dunkins without getting a drink. So here we are. It's significantly ch... (...more)
