So I’m super behind. I now owe the internets a cruise recap (ffs, haven’t even had time to go through the pictures yet, and I’m only halfway through, thank goodness for notes I wrote or my little goldfish brain would forget what I did!), and now an awesome birthday weekend recap. The short version is I ate awesome food:
…and drank good wine:
…and got purdy flowers:
…but now it is time to get back to business. Because yesterday, we got this guy a new bike…
…and when we rode it, I felt like the little yippie dog trying to keep up with the german shepard, my legs and lungs were NOT ready for a 12 mile outside ride. I can only imagine what running is going to be like.
So it’s time to get back to business this week. I’m not sick, I’m not injured, and it’s time to rock. This week, it’s back to normal, non-babypants workouts, if maybe a little lower intensity (I don’t want to kill myself, but I need to get back into things)
Here’s the PLAN:
Monday: swim (need one more day of low intensity, I feel like CRAP after all the birthday indulgence)
Saturday: long bike ride, or medium ride and run outside
This might shift around a bit as I’ll be trying to hit it outside as much as possible, I just want to make sure I get 4 good quality workouts + yoga this week. Distances, paces, times don’t matter. I’ll start worrying about that next week.
The next couple months is getting busy. Potential spring schedule…
March 19th – Warrior Dash
March 26th – Du Loop
EDIT: crap, just signed up for… April 17th – Rookie Triathlon
April 30th – Hell Run
EDIT: crap, also want to do… May 14th – Muddy Buddy
May 21st – Gladiator Games 5k and Obstacle Course
May 28th – Spread your wings adventure race
June 11th – Shammies and Koozies – ride and float
Mostly fun races, but I am looking to beat my time at Warrior Dash, Du Loop, and GGs (though it’s my overall 5k PR – so I will have to work at it).
I also really, really need to keep on this weight thing. Oddly enough, I feel like I LOST over the cruise, and GAINED this last week, and I felt LESS bloated there. So it’s definitely not dairy, gluten, wheat, or any of the regular offenders that I’m allergic to, as while I didn’t PIG, I definitely didn’t eat my normal rabbit food. I did eat lots of stuff that wasn’t light, diet, or low fat, so maybe there is something there… hmmm…
This week, I’m back to tracking, and attempting 1500 calories a day. I am also waiting to weigh until Wednesday to get some of this birthday bloat away. I am, frankly, too chicken to do it today. So there.
Aight, more later, at least one of the recaps this week, and back to life and reality. Happy Monday!
