Run by post

Actually made it out for a run tonight, but I made the mistake of trying to keep up with a group that normally runs about 30 - 45 minutes faster than I do!! I did not bad, if I do say so myself, but they did have to drop back a few times and wait for me..."leave no runner behind"...this is our clinic motto.

Tonight was the last run club before Christmas, so there was hot chocolate and egg nog and cookies to be had back at the shop. And for those of us that really got into the spirit (I pulled out the Elf costume, again), a gift card. Yay me! I can always find something to buy at the Running Room!!

Dinner tonight was very simple...just two dippy eggs and a chiabatta to dip in them. I wasn't feeling too inspired, but figured this was still better than eating at the pub later. While others noshed on fries (nary a one passed my lips), and other items of deep-fried goodness, I sipped my Guinness and told myself that it really is the Irish Meal Replacement Plan. Came home, and plugged the numbers into the Points Plus. Now, there's a website that I looked up the stats of a pint of Guinness on, and per ounce, it boils down to 1.1 carbs, 0 fat, 0 fibre and .1 g of protein. That works out to 2 pts for a pint! Down from 3 points on the old plan. This actually made me happy!!! Very, very happy. Add that to the 11 points I earned trying to keep up with the other runners, and I actually have weekly allowance and activity points leftover tonight. Let's see what the digital devil has to say about it tomorrow.

I do have a headache (elf hat...I hate wearing hats for this very reason) so I am about to medicate up and go to bed.
