Who doesn’t like to have fun?

Hey all! I’ve been busy since finishing the Bakersfield Triathlon this past Sunday. What a great race! Classic challenge for everyone! Thank you to all of the sponsors and volunteers who made it happen. Kerry Ryan (Action Sports), thank you for keeping this event going! 33 years this event has brought laughter, and tears, to people’s eyes. Much Appreciation and Maximum Respect to you Sir! If you are interested in knowing more about this race, I will be writing a blog during my travels this weekend about the race and what you can expect should you decide to tackle this awesome event! For now though, here is my blog from last year’s event Bakersfield Triathlon 2012.

Alright, this week has flown by. Taking a week off of training is difficult for me to do, and since my blisters from Sunday’s race are 90% better, I am probably going to head out for a ride tomorrow morning (no running till next week). But despite my “antsy pants” urge to get moving, I have had the pleasure of spending a considerable amount of time with my kids over the past week and a half, and this fills my heart with joy. I can’t express how thankful I am to be able to take them to school and pick them up, help them with their homework, as well as put up with their little brother / big sister spiritedness :-). We have worked hard on our school work, learned important lessons, and we even managed to have great fun too! I mean really, who doesn’t like to have fun?

So really here I wanted to reach out and say hello to anyone who takes a moment to read this post. There are some very cool things in the works right now, for me and for you. Please don’t hesitate to contact me should you be interested in seeing how I can help you.

Jog-a-thon got the best of my day. I basically lived between the kids’ school and Starbucks from 8 to 1:15. The nutrition went a little wide and somehow found myself at McDonalds, fast food I have sworn off. I didn’t feel great after eating the food, but no where near the chicken “salt-lick” sandwich incident from last year. To top it off, my lunch consisted of 10 Thin Mints (Refrigerated Girl Scout Cookies). I should have just eaten the whole sleeve at that point. Dinner wasn’t bad, except for all of the cheese and then my second dinner added more dairy. Tomorrow I plan on a busy and productive day.

Workout 14 of TriCore today. I spoke with the trainer Jack Nunn about just riding out the rest of the workouts over the next 3 days and he agreed. This would give me an active rest day on Saturday before Sunday’s Bakersfield Tri. A day of rest is always good. I agree 😉 !

Insanity: The Asylum Volume 2 is on hold this week. I’ll finish of Tricore Week 4 this week before the Bakersfield Triathlon on Sunday. I was on the EVOcx for 55 Minutes again today. So happy that I am drinking AcidCheck in my water. The TriCore workout induces a serious sweat session. Trying to spread out the calories, but having trouble with the sweets. Looking to get that reeled in over the next few days.

Drank a bunch of water yesterday. Even though I ate some snacks too, I am pretty sure most of what I gained yesterday was water weight. Trying to up the water intake to get pre-hydrated for the Bakersfield Triathlon next Sunday. This next week is going to be fairly heavy cycling training with TriCore. I am taking off this week from Insanity: The Asylum Volume 2 and going to get some running and swimming in as well as the cycling. I am so excited for this race! It is such a great race!

Finished off the second week of Asylum Volume 2. I only completed 7 of the Sudden Deaths. Gotta work on that for next time. Also finished off the third week of TriCore on the EVOcx. I was on the bike for 55 Minutes. I forgot the workout got longer this early in the progression. It was a really good session. I definitely got behind in my calories today. I need to work on eating more earlier in the day.
