NUTRITION:
Well I haven't really commented on my nutrition on any of my posts here.  Though it did take some time to figure out what agreed with my stomach, I tend to keep things really simple.   I try not to go over 60-80 grams of carbohydrates in an hour period.   2 stinger honey waffles cut them in half and take each half every 30 minutes Heed lime on the bike sipping a good amount every 30 minutes or when I feel like it Water on the bike and run taken after the waffle or Gu as carb drinks after waffle or Gu or anything sweet for that matter can cause dehydration as water is drawn to the stomach to dilute it.  Eevery hour on the bike I take 3 cubes of margarita shot blocks or 2 capsules of enduralytes On the run I prefer Gu with w[...]

Tom Petty was great..Steve Winwood opened up and played a lot of Traffic songs. Good times with good friends! Quinn and I were planning a track/gym/swim day...it's hot and I don't feel like running...as it is my "off season" I can decide not to run :) Little bit of work then off to the gym and pool with the spawn.

Lower and upper body with Quinn. Upped the weight a bit, lowered the reps

Group X classes are canceled this weekend for the floor to be refinished.....No boot camp.  Not sure when Miss Thing wants to head back to school so I may just do a Grokker video today.
Good emails with the lead coach from the 8K training team.  I acknowledged that the group needed to be newbie friendly but that I wanted a little more challenge to  get my run legs back.  I think we have a plan.  I will do more hill work and speed work on my own and then go to the coaches run at 6:30 AM before the group run at 7:30 then do the group run as my cool down.

Garmin has me running this back in 2007. Maybe there was a flux capacitor hidden in my running shoes...or maybe I got struck by 1.2 jigawatts of electricity...

Outside almost all day today. Started the morning rearranging the patio furniture, the plants and spraying off the patio. Then relocated Mickey's pet fence. Kids pick for church time, the picked 10:30 mass. I feel like half the day is gone by the time we get back from 10:30 church! Landscaping, swimming, sat outside while the kids swam. Trying to take advantage of this nice weather.
Have not seen any hummingbirds today :(.

Trying to Tri

September 21, 2014

Struggled with whether to run this morning. Thought about taking the day off, but knowing this week will be relatively light, doing the run eventually won out.

Because I got a late start, I decided to do a short run and try to work in some pace miles. Try is the operative word. Both miles were about :30 slower than goal pace. Was I tired? Or is my goal pace unrealistic? Is my inclusion of bike and swim hampering my running? The goal right now is a road race, so maybe I should just focus on running.

Going to start working in more pace work and see if that sparks something.
