Today I skipped lunch and ended up eating a Lean Cuisine Fettucini Alfredo with Chicken and Vegetables at 5:00pm that had been sitting in our office freezer for about 2 years. Not good. Not only was it pretty awful tasting, it did nothing for my energy level.
This was not the perfect fuel I was looking for in order to take on my quick 4 mile run in the 40 degree weather with rain. Instead, I got out on the road and quickly felt like puking my guts out.
I could feel the 2 year old Alfredo sauce churning with each step, and the gases coming up through my lungs were constant and painful. Of course I ran through the suffering and almost tossed my late lunch in front of a bunch of Christmas Carolling kids and their parentsAt least the run was good.
