@gl - Yeah those clif bars have a lot more fat than most bars. It doesn't bother me becuase I eat a lot of fat. Most likely be cause that is their low glygemic bar so it higher protein higher fat less carbs than most energy bars. All depends on what your going for with your nutrition. I don't normally eat more than 1 in a day but I starving yesterday and it was all i had available at the time so I did 2.



@rob - no it was vega that i was having the issues with. However, I have used sunwarrior in the past. Personally I like vega better. I found the "gelling" happens with soymilk. If you use a different kind of liquid, hemp milk, rice milk, coconut water, water etc. you should be ok. Also watch the fruit to liqiud content. too much fruit = chunky obviously. And also the adds in. if your throwing in ground flax or nuts that thickens it up too. but your right the faster you drink it the thinner it is.

Had to really sub for this wod too. All of the running I did on the rower. I also did the pullups on the rings because my hand is still torn up and bleeding. I couldn't get through 100 kipping pullups without trauma. Those were tougher than I expected. Did the thrusters as two seperate movements. 21 front squats @ 65 lbs. then when I was done with those i did 21 shoulder presses with 45lbs. I was push pressing the weight a bit because it was tough.

Bike - had my class this morning. Got damon hooked up with his new garmin sensor. sadly I couldn't get it to work during the class because it was picking up other sensors but after the class I got it to work so I will have data again for me rides. Yippee. Gonna keep me honest. main sets of the class today were an 8 minute TT at 100 percent effort. a 10 minute hill climb hard gear low cadence grind. and a 5 minute high cadence spin .There was other riding involved too not sure how much before of the sensor issue. legs are always cooked after this class.


Run - 3.5 miles. Still slow going! I need someone to run behind me with a taser or something. had to immediately get to the pool to get my swim wod in. Foot was a little sore afterwards. Oddly my left leg bothers me more than my right foot.


Swim - 300 drills to warmup, catch, shark and hesitate. My lats and shoulder were killing me for the entire time in the pool. Strangely they were not hurting at all until I started swimming. I think it is was from the cf wods yesterday. 500 pull, 5 x 100s at race pace on 20 seconds rest. Swam these at 1:40. Not sure if that was my race pace or not but I wasn't feeling speedy in the pool tday. finished off with 500 easy.


meal 1 - clif builder bar

meal 2 - tempeh, spinach, red peppers

meal 3 - vega wfo w/coconut water

meal 4 - 2 mexican pizza (black beans, tomatoes, cabbage), peanut butter


im register to race the "run for the red" marathon as part of a relay team. This is the course that Ironman Pocono mountain is using so I wanted to get out on the course before IMPM and check it out. This will be a half-mary a few weeks before eagleman. Really hope my running gets better and fast!

so good to meet another vegan atheist! What I do is i steam broccoli and then I dip it in hummus while I am eating it. Then I just love peanut butter so I eat it out of the jar. Gross I know. But True. Most of the time you see peanut butter listed in my meals I am just eating it out of the jar.
