I saw that, thanks :) I ordered a WFHO from Vegan Proteins right before we went grocery shopping, then saw it on sale in the store. So now I have two large tubs :) Like I said in my post, what a great day!

Surprised myself by how much I did and how good I felt afterwards :) It took two hours in the gym, but there were lots of breaks to chat with friends, so maybe an hour and a half of actual lifting.

Amazing weights workout today :) I tired 3 new exercises from the Men's Health Spartacus workout at the end of my normal routine. decided to mix up some of the weights too by increasing weight as I reduced reps.

Smith machine shoulder shrugs - 1 set x 12 reps @ 205lbs, 1 set x 10 reps @ 215lbs, 1 set x 8 reps @ 225lbs

Today's 20 mile run wasn't what I was hoping for. I simply went out too fast, running almost a minute per mile faster than I should have because I felt OK. Plus it was warmer today - around 82F - so it was a little warmer than I've been used to for a few months, so that may have had something to do with it, not to mention not having run more than 6 miles for 2 weeks because of two consecutive head colds. Or maybe it was all of the above, who knows... I was OK until mile 14, then I ran out of steam,. I pushed through to mile 16, then I pretty much walked the last 4. Oh well, it was a training run and not the actual marathon so it's OK.

So today's running stats: 3 hrs 51 minutes, 11:26 overall pace but 9"30 pace for the first 14 miles.

Here's what I ate:

Breakfast - oats, dates, rice milk, coffee with rice milk
Vega energy gels on the run, coconut water with fruit juice 50/50%
Post run - Vega recovery protein shake
Lunch - tofu scramble, hash brown, water
Snack - apple, almonds, coffee with rice milk
Dinner - gardein, asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, mashed potatoes, water
Snack - grilled cheese sandwich - wholewheat bread and Julie Hassen's ipepper jack tofu cheese (everydaydish.tv).

LOL Ooops... obviously the bench press was NOT 1355lbs and 1455lbs, but a mere 135lbs and 145lbs. Wishful thinking though ;)
