March Madness Info

by - Tuesday, March 18, 2008

Ok so I figure there's enough people who would be interested in the tournament pool to start the ESPN group.

Here's the info if you want to join. Please pass it on to any other blogger friends you have who might be interested. Remember entries have to be in Thursday by noon I think.

Go to ESPN.com. Click on the College BB tab and select 2008 Tournament. Under the main picture on the screen there will be a link that says play the tournament challenge.

In order to do so you will have to create an ESPN account (it's free.)

Then you can set up your bracket and join the group.

Group Name: Blogger Pool
Password: Runner

Once you set up your bracket you are good to go.

I'm not sure if ESPN has tie breakers, but in case they don't if you decide to play just leave a comment with final score of the championship game and I'll use that as the tie breaker.

For the record my final score is Tennessee 79 UCLA 75.

In recent workout news, I got a solid 40 minute run in on Monday on the thrillmill. Nothing too fascinating to report on it. 40 minutes on the treadmill is long and tedious, but the run for the most part felt good.

This morning was a lifting day so I did upper body on the free weights and then did some core work with the stability ball.

Does anyone else find they are always extra hungry on lifting days? I was starving today by 11 a.m. I ate the same breakfast I usually eat. I ate my mid-morning apple, but by 11:40 I had to eat the sandwich I packed for lunch because my stomach was growling so loudly. And then at normal lunch time I had to go to the grocery store salad bar for some chicken noodle soup and tuna salad.

Anyway I've missed OFN for a few days so let's see if I can remember everything. On Monday I slipped on sweets. A girl from work offered me two St. Paddy's Day cookies and I ate them at lunch without even thinking. I completely forgot.

OFN:
3/16/08:
Breakfast: Cheerios and skim with half a grapefruit
Lunch: Tuna Sandwich and grapes
Dinner: Chicken with steamed broccoli and red peppers
Snack: Bowl of Reese's Puffs with skim

3/17/08:
Breakfast: Cheerios and skim with half a grapefruit
Snack: Tiny, organic apple
Lunch: Panera Tuna Sandwich and baguette and two St. Paddy's cookies
Dinner: Turkey sandwich (I had packed lunch but ended up eating out), grapes, pasta salad
Snack: Two spoonfuls of peanut butter (yea I'm weird)

3/18/08:
Breakfast: Cheerios with skim and half a grapefruit
Snack: Tiny, organic apple
Lunch round one: Turkey sandwich
Lunch round two: Chicken noodle soup and tuna salad

  16. You need to add in some snacks - especially after your workout! No wonder you're starving afterwards. Have something within about a half hour of your workout(a carb/protein combo.) Your body needs to refuel AND it will benefit muscle development.
