Kroger Shop

Publix is definitely my grocery store of choice, but sometimes I head over to Kroger to see what kind of deals and manager's specials I can find. Today was a pretty good day. I got what they called a weekend platter that had 16 servings of roast beef and cheese tortillas, 10 PowerBar products (2 Energy Blasts, 3 bars, and 5 gels), and a 4-pack of individual-serving applesauce. Here's the cost breakdown:

I also did 5 minutes of work this morning and then rode over Lynwood. It took me 6:22 to get up the first side (east to west) and 7:00 to get up the other side (west to east). Back in February I times the east-to-west side and it took me 8:20. This was maybe 1/10 of a mile longer and was mile 39 of of a 42-mile ride, but today's climb was way faster! I also did the same route on Monday and Tuesday and both sides today were about 15-20 seconds faster than those days. I am trying to make myself into a climber :-)
