I am sure you are all as excited as I am about this announcement:
HAPPY NOODLE MONTH! I love noodles soo much that my parents actually call me noodles (one of my many nicknames).
Noodles are my favorite. All kinds and shapes and flavors. I even like tofu noodles because they are called, "noodles".
I can thank Hungry Girl for letting me know about noodle month!
In honor of noodle month, I had some delicious Spinach Noodles. These babies were Macro and Vegan and out-of-this-world good. You can serve them warm or cold. I like them better warm. I found that at my friendly Whole Foods (located on 13th and 7th for those in Gville).
I had my NOODLES with plain/ff yogurt with strawberries mixed in and a spinach salad with
- dried cherries
- goat's milk feta
- drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper
I like the cherries and goat cheese because the sweet and tart really balance well together. Plus a few cherries go a long way as does the goat feta (low in fat too :) ) I had another handful of pistachios too :)
While I was swimming, I saw my trainer friend Karlton. Somehow he talked me into doing a super sprint triathalon March 29th. Can't wait!
QUESTION: Has anyone done a super sprint (250 swim, 4m bike, 2m run)? If so, do you have any tips?
Pre-Swim: Lemon Larabar
Review: Lived up to its name of lemon. VERY LEMON-Y. Refreshing. Clean tasting.
Swim Workout (in yards today, the numbers in quotes are the number of times you do it, so (4) 100 means 4 100s):
Warm up: 300 free
(4) 75 alternating between kicking and pulling
(2) 100 drill (I did back and fly drills)
"Main set": This is called a descending ladder. I didn't really do it to its full extent because I had already run this morning and didn't want to over use my ankle.
(4) 100s, alternating between back and free. 10-15 seconds rest
(8) 50s, alternating free/back 5-10 seconds rest
(3) 100s, free/back/im 10-15sec rest
(6) 50s, free/back/im 5-10sec rest
I stopped here, but you would continue with 2 100s, 4 50s, then 1 100 and 2 50s
Warm Down: 100
2, 500 yards.
And here is a picture of my adorable cat, Kitty. She is very eco-friendly, hence her choice of grocery bag.
