Three Things Thursday: Keeping it Real

1. Last night I made an amazing siracha pork chop dinner that I'll share shortly. Lest you start to think I have some mad kitchen skills, keep in mind this behind-the-scenes reality check: I burned myself hardcore. There was cursing and there were tears. But dinner was lovely.
My arm was not part of the recipe

2. Keeping with a theme of I can't believe I still do this: I got lost big time on Tuesday. I went for a computrainer bike ride with Tri Smart and got lost because Apple Maps is not even in the same solar system as Google Maps in terms of accuracy. I was 20 minutes late and apologized profusely for being an asshole since the instructions for the ride clearly said the session must start on time.

3. Because I was in a rush for the ride, I didn't pay much attention to setting up my bike. A coach threw it on the trainer and I did what I could to keep up with the program on cold legs. It was a HARD ride of interval sets of increasing resistance. I nearly puked, and then when the ride was over, they reset my bike and I went for another 20 minutes. Then, and only then, did I realize my rear brake was closed. For the entire ride. This is the equivalent to driving from Chicago to Milwaukee with your parking brake on. No wonder I had my ass handed to me.

Hey! Now we can have mirror image arm scars from cooking burns. I have a very similar one on my right forearm.

oh burns hurt! I recently ran and increased my speed .1 every minute and I almost puked towards the end..I ended up walking before I hit that point, no one wants to clean puke out of the carpet, esp me.
