AM: Two mile morning constitutional. took some time to smell the flowers.

I had a smoothie this morning for breakfast. I will share my recipe for the second time...

1 to 1.5 bananas, some frozen blueberries, blackberries and raspberries, some cranberry-pomegranite juice, two tablespoons of wheat germ, one huge scoop of Muscle Milk protein powder, a bunch of plain yogurt or Greek yogurt.


Workout this afternoon.

6 X 1 mile (on the treadmill) with 1/4 mile walk/jog interval. Splits were as follows...

5:45, 5:45, 5:45, 5:45, 5:45, 5:45

Pretty consistent.

Plus a few miles warming up and cooling down.

I give it to my trained monkey.

Should have guessed.

Good grief, never drink breakfast. Next thing you'll be watching Richard Simmons videos and wearing shorts with French cut sides. Oh wait...

I'm trying to get down to 119 pounds. Only 30 pounds to go.

Great workout. May have to try the recipe - Looks good.

From Steve on Tue, May 21, 2013 at 21:00:22 from

The ability to maintain such consistent splits indicates a high level of training.

So does the 5:45 pace.
