An exciting day :)

Update (Sat. June 30): Ran 11.1 km in 1 hour 35 minutes =) and it's hilly!
- Ran to bus stop plus 1.1 miles to friend's house
- Marathon... here I come!! Well.... we'll see :P
--

My current routine:

7 AM - Bike to Issaquah Highlands Park & Ride
7 PM - Bike home from Park & Ride
(Each trip is 5.8 mi or 9.3 k)

Strength training (very random workouts / times), but focus on:
- abdominals
- core stability
- push ups

And, guess what? I'm thinking of joining the YMCA. So, hopefully I will have a more solid workout routine and incorporate swimming into my workout.

Meals (June 28):
6:45 AM: 2 slices of toast with organic peanut butter, glass of orange juice
9 AM: Handful of almonds
11 AM: Sandwich (tuna salad - tuna/egg/mayo)
1 PM: Lunch (Spinach salad w/ strawberries, 2 salmon burgers, 4 dumplings)
3 PM: More almonds
4:30 PM: Sandwich (tuna salad)
7 PM: Cook dinner (and use leftovers for next day's lunch)

**I'm also drinking a lot of water throughout the day. I've managed not to drink any coffee so far this week and replaced it by hydrating my body constantly. I have to make more visits to the washroom :p but I have a healthier and cleaner system=)
