Clearly I should not have eaten last night's jerky with wheat & soy both. I'm getting more and more sensitive to this junk since I've completely removed it. Probably a sign that keeping it out is the right choice for more than just acne, but sheesh, when I can't even have this little bit that's in jerky, I can obviously never expect to have a slice of REAL BREAD again. Sadness.
Luckily, I've learned that senna tea is some powerful stuff. Plus I bought the chocolate-flavored version, which is actually quite tasty. However, it is perhaps a bit more powerful than necessary. If you try it, drink half a cup and toss the rest...better to underdo it a bit, trust me on this one.
Sleep: 7.5 hours in bed, slept soundly - woke a few times but did not get up. Nice!!
Misc: LAPW meeting trumped my noon run. Bummer, as I am actually wanting to run! On the other hand, while at the meeting I talked to several people about training for Boston, and that made me super-duper-extra motivated to run. A very nice turnaround.
Long run thoughts: perhaps I'll make Friday a medium run and Sunday a long run. For example, this Friday I could do 6-8, take my full rest day on Saturday, and then aim for 12-14 on Sunday. Losing a lifting session, sad though it may be, is a worthwhile trade-off for a confidence-building long run. But if the Friday run is enough to feel "long" and 12-14 sounds intimidating, then I could call it good and love up my squat rack.
Also, I won a door-prize drawing at the LAPW meeting: one-hour interior design consultation with Glenda. So not something I would use. Like, ever. I am perfectly content with our mix of college- & bachelor-chic. However, I immediately thought: this is something my mother would L.O.V.E. Hoping Glenda will be good with that option!
To be good is not enough when you dream of being great.
