Indulgences, Repentance, and I’m not even Catholic

This weekend started off with trip downtown to volunteer with the Little Rockers Marathon. Kids who run/walk 25.2 miles before Marathon weekend get to run/walk/skip the last mile downtown and get a finishers medal. Fun stuff Maynard.
After packing everyone up and adding an extra girl to the 2 I had on hand, we dropped them at Gma’s and headed out for Ft. Smith. Had to make an exercise pit stop on the way for a short but intense trail run at Petit Jean Mtn. It was supposed to be a 4 miler but the rain in the a.m. said we might get muddy, we might trip and hurt an ankle, blah blah blah according to J. I guilted him into a 2 miler steepness stakes chase down into the bowl on Cedar Falls trail and back up. I did some stair repeats at the top.
Saturday night saw us at an Italian place in Ft. Smith called Taliano’s. I’m just sayin’ folks, if you want a nice dinner- hit this place up. It’s in a restored Victorian house, the food and service were both phenomenal and I think I’m still recovering from the butter infusion I got from my Salmon Amadine with buttery sauce. Ateries…hardening…
Sunday we got up and I had a sweeeet breakfast of an egg white/garden omelet and fresh fruit. Then we went out on the Ben Geren trails for about 10 miles. It was only about an hour of actual riding. There’s a bit of something for everyone out there. Sweet technical curves, sweeping rollers and a couple of good nasty climbs. I wanted to repeat a section we did that had me brushing shoulders between trees for a couple of miles, very tight turns with endo penalty for depth perception misjudgment.
Then there was more indulgence. FOOD. I had a philly cheesesteak with onion rings. And drinks. A few of them. And breakfast at 1:45 a.m. I did manage to order an egg white omelet (but with the sausage, sigh)
Monday I did NADA. But I attempted to get back on the healthy eating wagon with limited success. Anyone know that you can make rice crispy treats with stale fruity pebbles and it’s still awesome?
Today, has been a decent food day so far and plan to keep it as such. I punished myself with a trip out to Pinnacle Mountain. I ran from the visitor’s center to the East Summit trail and went up. Usually we go down the west side but I decided to go back down the East side, it’s harder. Then ran around the East Base trail (mostly ran it) to the West Summit trail, did it the same way and then finished around the West Summit Base trail back to the OT and the visitor’s cntr running on and off. I don’t know how many miles that was. It was about 2.5 hours of moving though. My legs are officially tired.
