This week and daily diet.
Eek. Like Trisaratops, I am about to take two unplanned day off. Yesterday, the pool was close and I didn’t packed my run gears. Today, woke up late and tonight going to see Da Vinci Code. Will try to squeeze in some swim time before the movie.
List of things:
– Tomorrow, ride with Toronto Triathlon Club. This should be interesting. Probably ride 3 hrs with them. Friend is also coming and she is just starting.
– this weekend going to do an open water swim. Have to try the wetsuit
– meeting with my swim coach Monday at 9 pm. It’s about time.
– want to get another long ride in on Sun if possible (3 hr + would be nice)
So far that’s about it on my end. Next week, things really have to ramp up. And it should. Summer is finally here.
Just wrote up a blurb about my chit chat with a Pitney Bowes salesguy. But decided that to put down my diet. I have been following this diet for about 4-5 months. I like it. It is about 2,500 – 3,000 calories a day. This is strictly weekdays.
8 – 9 am – two flaxseed bagel with PB
10 am – two handfuls of almonds and cashews
noon – a yam or borrcolli, turkey breast meat or tuna, spring mix with dried cranberry/raisins/blue berry (I just started this, makes spring mix more tasty)
– supplement: Omega 3, Calcium, Vit C
2 pm – Tomato Grapes/Carrot/Sweet pepper
3 pm – two bananas
4 pm – Orange
5 pm – bread sticks (~ 1 serving)
Dinner – depends, sometimes I eat grain. Also eat more veges.
This is my diet. If there is one thing to change is to add more seafood. Need more fish. More tuna. This is just a rough sketch. I don’t have my calories dial in. But it serves me pretty well. I am 5’7″ and weight 145 lbs. With this diet, my weight stays the same.
If I go for an hour or two training, I will eat some raisins before (high sugar to act like gel, cheap, tasty, easy to storage and is an alkainine food) and drink gatorade. For long run/bike/swim, I will have gel during the training and protien fruit shake afterwards.
I think the Americans are having a long weekend. Veteran weekend is it? Well I know this weekend I will be enjoying myself. Casa Loma (pic) is having an open house this weekend. Will see if I have time to check it out. Either way..enjoy 🙂
