WIW - Race Week Edition

This week: 186.8

Last week: 185.6

I’m okay with the number. I’m coming off my period AND I ate all the carbs while in NYC. Pizza, bagels, and AMAZING FOOD at Oda House - thanks VeggieLife and Fromthebackofthepack for the recommendation - everything was superb and we loved the wine too. 

I biked and ran my tri course again yesterday, felt good. Looking forward to my 2 swims to get in this week that will hopefully further calm my nerves. 

Trying to eat well and hydrate this week. Still figuring out what to eat the day before and morning of. I have a basic nutrition game plan, but I need to tighten it up.

Pumping my Bod

Phew life has been so busy lately and tri training has picked up that I haven’t done a Body Pump or Insanity workout since 4th of July. I got in a Body Pump workout and hard core abs workout yesterday. Plus a 5K fun run. 

I shouldn’t discount the fact that I’ve have my kickball league games which are wrapping up and that sand volleyball starts this week. I plan on biking to some of the games for added exercise. 

I really enjoy leading an active lifestyle - I think this summer has been/will be a personal record in terms of both level and variety of activities.
