Getting ready to Reach the Beach!!!!

Its crunch time, I'm scrambling to get things ready for Reach the Beach.  We don't leave till 6pm, but there are little things I kind of put off..... 

Like printing out the handbooks that we are required to have two of.
But then I realized it was way too many pages to do at home.... so I just spent almost an hour cursing at the Kinkos and Staples sites.... they were NOT cooperating!

So my day in food.....

was running late again, so I packed up my mix-ins for my at work oats
Mix-ins: blueberries, dried cranberries, walnuts, ground flax

With my oats & a little skim milk.

Headed home for lunch and to walk the pooch.

-flat out & marinara sauce, broiled with roasted brussel sprouts & turnips, plus some tomato, roasted potato and feta
It was messy but good.

At work I snacked on some Food Should Taste Good Sweet Potato Chips

After work I got my butt to Kettlebell!!  (since I messed up my alarm AGAIN)
Repeated the all of the following 5 times, 
1 minute rest between each round, each exercise a minute unless otherwise noted
Round 1
-hand to hand sumo deadlift
-figure 8's
Round 2
-Get up sit ups
-Russian twist
Round 3
-Heavy press 1/1, 2/2, 3/3
-1 arm rows

Awesome workout!  I love it when there is lots of variety!

Then I ran around working on some 5K race promotion, after that it was home to walk Reggie and make dinner. 

Chicken Parmesan 
-preheated over to 400
-dipped chicken breast in an egg, coated w/ breadcrumbs
-sprayed pan w/ canola oil
-baked for 20 minutes
-added marinara sauce and some parmesan cheese
-baked for 10 minutes more
-boiled up some pasta

(yes I like sauce)    

Time to get some packing done.... need to dig out the sleeping back and warm clothes.  
There is a FROST ADVISORY tonight where we will be running Friday night/ early Saturday morning.... eeks.  

So timeline tomorrow....

6am short run
8am work
noon leave work & finish packing
2pm leave to get huge passenger van from rental place
4pm pick up manuals & grocery shop
6pm pick up van 6 of the crew & head north
8pm dinner, check into our accomodations
My goal is to be IN BED before 11!!!

My mileage for the race....
1st leg 7.95 miles  (9:20am)
2nd leg 3.91 miles  (approx. 8:35 pm)
3rd leg 9.42 miles  (approx. 7:10 am)
Total mileage =  21.28miles

the good: no real late night or early morning running
the bad: my last leg is my longest & the hilliest

I'm going to attempt to blog on the road... not sure how successful I will be!

Have a great night!
