Today we had our company holiday party at work. I dove in and fixed a "normal" sized plate, only to regret it later. Turns out, when you only eat fresh produce for 10 days, you don't fall asleep at your desk. But when you have a typical meal on the standard American diet, you will fall asleep at your desk. I had totally forgotten how bad that stuff could make you feel. The catering is from one of my favorite restaurants around here, Smithfield's BBQ. They are a wonderful establishment and the food was delish, but not Paradigm in any way. totally came back to bite me in the afternoon.

I really wanted to get in a swim tonight so I downed some leftover Shepherd's Pie and headed for RAM practice. Got to work off all those meat & fried calories. 3200 meters of speedwork later and I could barely lift my arms. It was an insane workout, we almost never do intervals at puke threshold in the pool.

Friday is a rest day, and Saturday I'm going to end the experiment with the Jolly Elf trail 5k. This is where I set my 5k PR 2 years ago, then last year I was about 30 seconds slower. This year I think I can break that PR, and being powered by plants and the Paradigm Diet I like my chances.
