Flat Tire!

On my bike. This morning. When I was at least four miles from the office. This wouldn't be so bad if it were my "commute route," in which case I could just jump on BART or even use one of the bike racks on Muni, BUT NOOOOOOOO!!!!! It was my "training route" where I try to get in at least 10 miles in loops around Mission Bay before I go anywhere near downtown. In other words I was LITERALLY out where the busses don't run. BLERGH! It must be a slow leak because I got at least 7 miles before I looked down and noticed the squishiness of my front tire.

So my morning workout looked like this:

1 hour 8 minutes 37 seconds
7.93 miles

Walking, while pushing the bicycle
51 minutes 22 seconds
2.26 miles

Then I tried to get in a cab, but couldn't fit the bike in the back, so I walked over to the "Ride The Parks" bike rental folks and borrowed a pump. The tube held enough air for me to ride the remaining .76 to work.

Oh well, there had to be some calorie burn in there somewhere if only on the aggro.

Also my 2nd day going "pure paleo" meaning this time I'm trying to let go of my diet soda/sugarless gum addiction. Caveman Zog didn't have Extra Peppermint to chomp on all day or the option of swigging down Diet Sunkist.

I also tried a Quest bar, recommended by my friend Jim. Pretty good on taste. Not overwhelming on calories, but not great on satiety. Ate the bar at about 10:00AM and by 1145AM, I needed to do some fruit and veggie, but since it's really only supposed to be replacing the protein, I guess that's reasonable. Mostly I'm looking for something to use as cardio fuel in lieu of brown rice or quinoa.

I'm desperately freaked out over how much I could have put back on while I was in binge mode. I'm only wearing tent-like skirts because I'm terrified to put on even a size 12 and have it not fit.
