I had no idea what I was getting in to this more with Isometrix, all I knew is that it was on the same DVD as Dynamix. Dynamix is a dynamic stretching sequence which I really like. It gets you sweating which is something I never really thought of doing before in a stretching situation, but now it totally makes sense. Stretching should be work, otherwise, you really aren’t stretching. So I thought that Dynamix would be no big deal after doing  the new workout. Wrong. Isometrix was 30 minutes of yoga type static positioning. Wow! That was some serious work then to have dynamic stretching after and still be a little sore from the last double on Saturday. All I can say is, my quads were on fire! They almost hurt as bad as the end of the 4th day skiing at #WhistlerRaid2014

Anyway, I worked really hard at keeping the nutrition in play today. I even changed what I usually order at my kids’ favorite Mexican Restaurant and went with the Shrimp Fajitas. Super spicy and oh so yummy too! Almost made it, but my sweet tooth got the best of me. Just proves that I am much better off without having the sweets within reach. If I don’t have them in the house, I won’t eat them!

I was a bit alarmed today when my daughter was brought to me riding the back of her Gym Coach in the middle of practice. She slightly pulled her Achilles tendon. No fun for her. At least she didn’t snap the thing. That would have been a little too much to handle :-\ . Just happy that she listened to suggestion after and let it get iced, massaged, and she even spent a little time on the Rumbleroller and her brother joined in too!

Good stuff! I love those kids! Time for me to hit the Rumbleroller myself!

Got in my workout this morning. No bike ride today, but I did get to play catch with my son while my daughter was at gymnastics. I have to say, that was way more entertaining than a bike ride 😉 Nothing quite like a 5 year old learning how to snatch a ball out of the air. I’ll have to let you know when it happens 😉 But seriously if you want to see a natural quarterback, you’ll have to check back soon, because this kid has an arm and a natural spiral, at 5. I love that kid. Sincerely sweet, wildly wide open, and absolutely adorable.

Today was a great day which started out with my daughter’s swim practice. My son and I had fun watching (He said that he wants to do it too so he can get better like her. She wants to do Gymnastics next. SO I guess I’ll be purchasing a leotard or something like that soon! I love that my kids want to be active 🙂 !

Started the second week of Focus T25 Beta Phase with Dynamic Core. This workout sneaks up on you and makes you work hard. After that workout I headed out for a 27 mile bike ride in some pretty hot weather with light wind. I turned out my third best time ever for a 20 mile segment despite a little issue with a case of sour stomach. I have been using the AcidCheck Caplets which will most likely save me from some serious burning muscles tomorrow, but I ran out of AcidCheck Granules to put into my water 🙂 No bueno! I got out on the bike about 5 miles in and could feel the water sitting in my stomach, which just kept me from drinking more water. Then halfway into the ride I ate a Citrus Flavored Clif Shot Energy Gel. I quickly began to feel a burning sensation in my stomach and was acid burping. Something I have not felt since December of 2011 when I used to eat Zantac every day (before Shakeology). I have taken the Citrus Flavored Clif Shot before and it was OK (I prefer plain flavored GU Energy Gel when training). The only thing I did differently was I didn’t take the AcidCheck Granules. Thankfully my shipment is coming in tomorrow and I’ll have some for my race this weekend. I don’t ever want to train or race again without AcidCheck in my water. I seriously can’t recommend anything more than Acid Check when you are working out. It helps that much!
