Let's not talk about the extra baggage apparent in this morning's weight check, but instead consider how the 21 miles I ran from Thursday to Sunday did not counteract the foods and beverages I packed in over that same period.
Thursday: The Enthusiast and I ran three miles together and then I tacked on another four miles before we went to eat.
Menu: Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, Brussels sprouts with pancetta, pecan pie with Cool Whip, Laphroaig, Great Lakes Christmas Ale
Friday: A six-miler before a "friends Thanksgiving."
Menu: More turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, salad, cupcake, Bell's Sparkling Ale, Great Divide Hibernation Ale
[Drunkard's note: Apparently, I was too drunk to recall that I also had some Peanut Butter Cup Coffee Porter from Willoughby Brewing Co.]
Saturday: Friends over for dinner, but no running because I wanted to play my banjo instead.
Miles: Does old-time banjo count as cross training?
Menu: Roasted chicken, artichokes, potatoes, salad, German chocolate cake, Hibernation Ale, Sparkling Ale, Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald
Sunday: First longish run in ages before a birthday celebration with cake and dinner with leftover pie.
Menu: Deli sandwiches, various appetizers, birthday cake, pork tenderloin, potatoes, peas (ick!) with mushrooms (yum!), pecan pie with Cool Whip, Laphroaig
I guess I don't need to concentrate on adding winter weight.
