Heartrate during the Krispy Kreme, very easy to see when I was chowing down
Saturday was a long day full of much activity but also times feeling like I was in a coma.
I started off the day doing the Krispy Kreme Challenge with a few co-workers and 7500 other people.  I signed up as a challenger this time so I planned to eat all 12 donuts and I succeeded! I still ate breakfast because I didn't want massive amounts of sugar to be the first thing my body saw that morning- so I had one chicken sausage and brocolli with my chai.  The race took me about an 1 hour and 18 minutes to finish so I didn't make the 1 hour cutoff but I was happy that I did it and I plan to never, ever do it again.  The run to Krispy Kreme had me doing 10 minute miles so I got there in ~25 minutes and then it took me 23 minutes to eat the entire dozen, I'm pretty sure I slowed down starting on Donut #8.  I could only eat one donut at a time and when I had 4 left, I tried doubling up but just felt sick trying to do that so I went back to singles.  My pace going back was more like 13 minute miles but I didn't throw up and my stomach wasn't upset.  I didn't even notice anyone around me throwing up which is a good thing because that probably would have made me involuntarily throw up!  The thrill is gone now.  A race such as this will not be attempted again.  It set me back 2400 calories minus the 500 calories I burned running so I was still in the hole for 2100 1900 calories.

I got back home, went into a food coma and napped for a bit.  Then I forced myself to get ready for a bike ride and ended up biking the bridle trails at Umstead for ~23.5 miles total, thereby burning another 1000 calories. At this point it was 3 pm and I still wasn't hungry.  At 4 pm, I decided I needed some real sustenance so I had a small bowl of my homemade chicken curry.  This carried me over and I ended the day doing a strength workout:
Bench press
45 lbs warmup
65 lbs x 5 reps
75 lbs x 3 reps
85 lbs x 3 reps
then my accessory exercises:
Dumbbell press 2x25 lbs 5 sets of 5 reps (I was aiming for 10 reps but it was too tough for me)
Dumbbell rows 25 lbs 5 sets of 10 each arm
My last meal post-workout was a whey protein shake with 2 cups of spinach mixed in.  Tomorrow will be a low, low carb day since I am replete with carbs today! I shouldn't need anymore for several days.  My stomach doesn't feel any worse for the wear but seriously- a dozen donuts is a bad idea!
Proof I finished all the donuts
