Know that song by the Beatles?
Perfect cadence for 6 minute kilometres on the tready.
I went to the Gym today to do some running (I know, it’s the tready, but I wanted to go to the gym). Plus some upper body work.
I did a bit of speedwork. I was proud of myself, especially since I was feeling a bit sick.
Why did I feel sick?
I had been craving cake all week, but had not had any (well maybe a sliver of home-made fruitcake). I wanted something flourless, like a friand.
I went to my local bakery/patisserie to look for a little something. They had a piece of flourless chocolate and pistachio cake. That would do nicely, I thought. I had it with a cup of earl grey tea. It was a smallish slice, and I even left a bit.
I got home. Felt tired. Probably sugar crash.
I went to the gym, and the damn cake sat in my tummy like a rock. I have been suffering from very severe reflux recently (am booked in for a gastroscope next Monday).
I am officially now put off flourless chocolate cake. When I was running on the tready today, I came about the closest I have ever gotten to vomiting. It took a major feat of mental strength not to do it (the gym people probably wouldn’t clean the spew, anyway).
I put in a good workout despite not having the best fuel.
I actually find that heavy carbohydrates for lunch really make me sleepy in the afternoon. Hence a protein based lunch is better, but I don’t like tinned tuna. Boiled eggs get a bit tiresome too.
Anyone got good lunch ideas?
