Don't you love it when you write a whole post, and are about to hit Publish, then the whole thing disappears on you? I sure do.
This weekend I thought of my training, or my lack thereof.
My 15k is in four weeks. I'm hoping my orthotics are ready by Thursday, this lack of running is making me ner-vous.
My Sprint Tri is in eight weeks. I picked up my bike Friday, and it feels great, all cleaned up, the seat is in the right position (the side of my knee has been bugging me, and I think my seat height was the culprit) and the tires are sleeker than they were. I already feel faster.
The swimming, however, it's happening as much as I want it to. The pool was closed for the second weekend in a row, due to a filter malfunction. I've been hearing more details about the lake where the Tri is going to be held, apparently it's very shallow, but the swim itself goes by fast because you have to run a bit to reach deeper water. What I'm not so stoked about, are the razor mussels that live in that lake, a friend of mine cut her feet up pretty good when she raced last year. So I've got to look for some kind of water shoe to deal with those suckers.
My strength work is going well, I don't belong to a gym, so my living room is my gym. As is my kitchen counter, can you see the air between the counter and my body? This is a great move for your core, and arms. Speaking of my core, I'm made friends with Planks, only because I'm seeing progress, I can hold for 60 seconds now, instead of 30, and I can do 5 sets now, instead of, um, one.
Today is Weigh In Monday, I'm exactly where I thought I was. The weekend was a test, mainly because Mike brought home bread from Pastabilities, one black pepper loaf, and one made of bleu cheese and onion. Thanks Mike. But he also brought home some lovely fresh strawberries:
This week my goal is to eat really clean, no stealing chips from Mike's snack, or taking a bite of his cookie. Mike is one of those types who loses 10 pounds in a week when he gets a cold, then keeps it off, even though he snacks. So when he breaks out the Lays bag, I'm going to look the other way.
What is your goal for the week???? What do you find distracting when trying to eat right??
Tomorrow I'll post another giveaway, Thank You for the donations I received last week to The Children's Tumor Foundation!!!!!
The winner of the RoadID (I used random.org to pick the winner) was number 13, Mandy from Caratunk Girl!!
