Steel Buns

For those not familiar, yes, Timbits are donuts.  Donut holes to be exact.  They are from the Canadian chain Tim Horton's, which is about as Canadian as you can get.  However they are starting to spread rapidly into the US Market. 

From their website:

Tim Hortons locations can presently be found in Michigan, Maine, Connecticut, Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New York...

Currently, there are more than 2,800 stores across Canada, and over 500 locations in the United States.

Funny, this article popped up on MSN today ... Tim Hortons wages 'all-out war' for U.S. territory

Last night after work the sun was out and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get out for a run.  I was a bad Mom/Wife and didn't even leave enough time to make dinner for my family - they're old enough to take care of themselves once in a while.  Sometimes you just gotta get your run in, that's all that matters!

After doing a series of lunges, squats, etc. for the last few days my butt was so sore!

I'd love to say I have Buns of Steel ...

but it just felt like I was carrying steel in my behind.

OWIE!!!  But a good owie.  An owie that tells me my workouts are building muscle where I really need it.

Since I didn't leave enough time to make dinner, I ended up picking up something after my daughter's dance class.  I got a couple of McDonald's chicken fajitas.  They sure have a lot of wrap with very little filling in those things.  I tore off at least half of the wrapping.

Tonight I look forward to having the time to prepare a decent meal.  Mon-Wed is a bit crazy in our house.  Thursday is my catch up day. 

Tomorrow I'm planning to do my last long run before the half.  And I'm going to try something new to eat on the run.  Chewy type candies don't do it for me.  Nor do sweetened sports drinks.  We'll see how it goes and I'll write a review.

Until then ....

Have a great day!

I feel like I can't do anything when my ass is sore from weights! But it always feels better when I get it moving!

I was sooo confused on what a Timbit was. Thank you for explaining. We obviously do not have them here in idaho. Probably a good thing cuz I would be eating them!

Can't wait to see what you are using for fuel!!! No timbits here but a family owned bakery that makes both regular glazed and old fashioned glaze to die for. They also make many other kinds and the best bagels ever.
