This is the day of the expanding man.
August. Welcome to the the third shift.
Distance: 5 miles
Good run with Chris. Not easy, but what is? Ran five, walked a block. Beautiful day.
Thought the other day, why keep a log? Why not just write down statistics and leave it at that? Too much time spent writing this blog, what is the point?
Who knows. But I have been at it too long to quit. Like Samuel Pepys, perhaps I am leaving behind an account which someone may find a use for. A physiologist, a psychologist, a lawyer. Who knows.
Climate: clear skies, a bit humid
Mood: all right
The time has come, to quit the sugar and processed foods. This is the same diet that made my blood sugar spike, who knows where it is now. Cut the soda, the candy, the chips and all the rest. Last night we got in around dinner time but I was still able to get to the store, and the wife made a meat-free, high-protein meal, one which even included a few beans from the backyard.
Just a few. Too many damn deer and one frisky groundhog.
