morning babble / Wednesday 10-18-23
This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes, it gets tidied up; but other times, not so much. When all else fails: watch the video!

Found a 5k race to run on Saturday, October 28th – it’s called “Boo & Brew”

Happy Day – I’ve been meaning to get this update out on my running goals.
I wasn’t able to do the Faithful Friends 5k last month, but I am so determined to do this one.
Let’s get into what I’m doing to prepare for the race
1. Game Plan – How Much Running?
Every Day this Week / Once the weekend hits – probably just Sunday / Then, Tues & Thurs
Angry Run Playlist – I’ll probably add that Midnight Oil “Beds are Burning” song
I was thinking of getting myself a Rucking vest – you know a weighted vest – like a backpack?
I changed my mind. I’m trying to lose some weight instead
2. Diet – To Fast or Not To Fast
Not going to fast this month – first time in nearly 3 years – I’ve done it for 33 months in a row – a 3-Day Fast. This month – it comes to an end.
I find myself weakened after a fast and it takes me about 2 weeks to ramp back up.
3-Day fast should be next week
I thrive on a strict, routine diet / Tim Ferriss has the Slow Carb Diet with a “cheat day” / This was written about in the 4-Hour Body and the 4-Hour Chef
I actually started my own specialty diet this past Sunday night – I’m still using the Zero app despite it not being a “fast” fast – Broth, Brewed Coffee, Grilled Chicken breast in the evening, and 2 cups of Frozen Blueberries

I have to brush my teeth alot because of the blueberries
3. Alcohol – To IPA or Not To IPA
No drinking because real athletes don’t drink alcohol right / Phillies celebration scene
They’re not really drinking it, right. Sorta spraying it all over the place
