I had my first physical in about 5 years on Tuesday. It turns out I’m fit as a fiddle. I mentioned last week that my good cholesterol was low, but the doctor said since my overall cholesterol level was low, the ratio of good to bad cholesterol is fine. The iron levels are fine. And since I’ve been feeling better lately, he didn’t seem too concerned. I guess dropping from 65 mpw to 15 mpw is the answer. Now if I can just figure out how to run 2:55 on 15 mpw, I’ll be all set.

As I mentioned the other day, I’ve been trying to do a better job with my eating. Whenever I get into that mode, I turn to It’s simple to use, mainly because you can easily customize your own foods if it’s not in their database. I just cut the nutritional info from the food I eat and then enter it into the website. After one day of data, I think my suspicions are going to be confirmed; I eat well for breakfast and lunch, but things can easily fall apart once I get home. Weekends should be interesting.

Quote of the day;

Chad: Are we reading a possible chance of you running TCM? I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a decent weather day.
