Kona Cola is much better than the Citrus Fruit flavor. Especially when one is trying to give up their diet cola addiction... Diet cola I love you so.... I'm cutting down to once a week. I don't know what it is about the fizzy stuff but I crave it just as bad as any other food indulgence.
Or maybe anything tastes good after a run in 100+ Heat Index weather... Seriously though, Nuun is good stuff after a hot sweaty run.
Also Blueberry Pomegranate Gu Chomps are pretty darn awesome. I usually wouldn't use them on these shorter runs/rides but I've given myself an extra energy kick because of the heat.
This week is going well (least you think my two day absence is a sign of another fall off of the wagon). I had a good swim day on Monday. I've made progress with keeping my head down and finding a pace that won't kill me. I've also become a big fan of pull buoys and wish I could use one in the race. We meet again for group swim tonight so I hope my new positive feelings towards swimming remain.
Tuesday we ran about 2 miles (25-30 minutes) but it was hot and humid so it was a slow run. I was drenched in the after stretch. Downward facing dog is a bit difficult when sweat is pouring into your eyes.
I went to Zumba afterwards to get a little more calorie burn. The a/c was broken in the main dance room so we all crowded into a smaller studio. We still had a lot of fun together. It's a great group. I'll probably do bike work inside tomorrow since the H.I. will stay high through this week.
I avoided cake at home, biscuits at a breakfast this morning, and croissants/muffins as well. The diet is working for now. I'm eating plenty but watching content and making sure there's a balance. I'll blog about it a bit more later when I can't think of anything else to write about.
