|Can't wait to get the shirts!!!!|
This week we learned about nutrition while we rode for about 45min or so. Janicke did not let us off that easy though. She busted me tweeting when I thought we were done because she wanted to throw in a few challenges at the end. It's not the same as a spin class but when we were done I was sweating and felt good. I love how the team is shaping up and my goal is to get from the back of the pack to somewhere at the slow end of the middle. Is that even a place? Slow middle?
In the meantime our other coach Nancy sent out our training schedule. She has 4 swims per week on there. Really? Yeah no.. I need to focus on my run at the moment (hai half marathon) so I changed the program around a bit. I started with our half marathon training schedule. A group run on Thursdays, long run on Saturday and a solo run on Tuesday. Then I added in 3 cycling sessions, well I didn't have to add them in, they were already there. Spin class one day per week, solo trainer ride and a long group endurance ride on the weekend. I only have one swim per week down and one strength training session but if my runs are less than an hour I will throw in another session. I'd like to do 2 half hour sessions per week (push/pull). Saturdays are turning out to be mini-tris with a swim and then a brick. This could be good, or at least funny because the ride is our endurance ride and I'm going to look like a duck trying to run off the long bike ride. Is it too late to pray?
I also joined Jason's cupcake half marathon but I opted OUT of the cupcakes portion, it kinda defeats the purpose. I figure with my training schedule I'll more than meet the mileage required and it's always fun to this kinda thing.
My eating has been really great lately, I'm very proud of myself but at the same time my jaw hurts from chomping all the vegetables. I feel good!!
that's all I got..
