Two weeks until Bay to Breakers....

I did a 7 miles training run/walk/run today. Basically just loops around Mission/Castro plus hill repeats in Dolores Park, which is my B2B "preparation" although whether I actually try to jog up the Hayes Street Hill remains to be seen.

Garmin Forerunner stats:

No gummy bears today, in deference to my attempts at a paleo/primitive diet as well as to see if that will fend off the bladder urgency, which it did. I DID have 1/4 cup of quinoa with my almond milk and a banana at 5AM (when I also took DRUGS!) That seemed to give me enough glycogen for at least the 7 miles. Thanks to Flexeril and Vicodin, my legs and back felt ok and thanks to Sir Speedy Hydroxycut, my energy held up. OK, maybe that was the quinoa. Either way, I didn't get that "I'm out of glycogen-my legs are dying feeling." On the other hand-only 7 miles.


After I stretched and hate Hubby and I rode the bikes down to the Cartoon Art Museum to see "Pretty In Ink," a special exhibit about Women Cartoonists.

Then we took a walk to the Embarcadero and back to the Metreon for "Transcendence," which I'm assigning a hearty "MEH!"

I'd promised Hubby I'd got Mel's with him, but the longer the food/diet/exercise process goes on the harder it is to eat at a grease/starch pit. My old standby, the tuna melt, went by the wayside when I had to get the cholesterol down. The chicken breast sandwich doesn't work when I'm going as Paleo/Primal as possible.

I dodged the Mel's bullet and we're going to Chow for Brunch tomorrow, where I can do the quinoa/yogurt/fruit thing and not feel like a fat, greasy moo-cow. So far I've stayed off the scale, and I THINK the new food/exercise/DRUGS regime is working, but I won't know until Wednesday.

please tell me the cartoon museum did lots on Lynda Barry and Alison Bechdel and very little on Cathy Guisewite.

The exhibit was focused on the earlier years-going back to the teens/20's/30's/40's and artists like Ethel Hays, Edwina Dumm, Nell Brinkley, Ramona Fradon, and Lily Renée.
