Food, an hour later:

I have been losing a lot of weight recently (more on that here) and getting a bit twitchy about muscle loss. Having run a long mountain race on Saturday (post here), my options for intense exercise were limited to non-quad and non-calf affecting activities.

Thus, an old-school, mainly-upper-body, throw-some-weights around session with my gym partner seemed like the ideal tonic, followed by a day of good eating. This was lunch:

...and I am about to tuck into a whole rabbit for dinner. Tomorrow I shall fast, then on Thursday I will hit the pool for some underwater lengths but a more modest day of eating.
