I got up did 9.5 miles on the bike ("hills") and then ran out the door and ran 2 miles in 14 minutes. :D awesome I feel great. I am tinkering with the idea of a sprint triathlon maybe early next year....
Now we are off to the lake. 8)

i feel the same way about rest days. you should def do a sprint tri. they are really fun! also since you bike and run now you can do a duathlon.

Yes! I was thinking about doing that first. I know Wilkes-barre has one but it passed already. I am checking out different ones in PA and NY.

Today was a hardcore day. Was it supposed to be? LOL I dont know.
I woke up and had a green smoothie and my vega sport prework out drink. I did my upper body:
2 sets 12 lat raises
2 sets 12 bicep curls
2 sets 12 rows
2 sets 12 front raises
2 sets 12 kickbacks
2 sets 12 overhead presses
Then I did my abs:
some pilates like the 100, roll ups, rolling like a ball, v sits, swimmers and then the runnersworld ab workout (planks with leg lifts, bridges with leg lifts, metronome SP??, supermans, one Im forgeting.. ugh).
After that I went to the track and ran 4.25 miles in 44 minutes. This was scary, the HS FB team was practicing and they were doing sprints and a huge side of beef just collapsed. Police, ambulance the works. Turns out he didnt eat breakfast or hydrate properly. Hope he gets better right away and learns a lesson. It was in the mid 90s already and humid and disgusting of course so I was running after the team got back to sprints and I run past the head coach (HS football is BIG here, like TX big lol) and he looks at me and says "you prob ate f*cking breakfast". LMAO. He was soooo mad. He was singing songs about how slow they were, calling them out.... hed scare JM LOL. After my run I ran the stairs in 9 minutes!!! Yea! My quads were BURNING. Loved it. I dragged my soaking wet a** home and finished with some legs.
A quick pilates based routine (leg lifts, circles, bicycles, all that stuff) and then I did:
3 sets 12 squats w/ 10lb weights
3 sets 12 dead lifts w/ 10lb weights
3 sets 60 calf raises w/ 10lb weights

Its evident that I need much heavier weights. I need 15lb ones, I could go all day with 10s. This is all due to the power yoga. Hell yea.
I had recovery pudding afterward.
Lunch was a tomato and cucmber salad with basil and a vegan sausage, also tons of water.

I woke up today feeling SO sick. Haha so my paranoid self (I JUST had a baby) took a pregnancy test (negative!!!) and laid in bed until I felt better. Then I had a green smoothie for breakfast, felt MUCH better. Today was a non running day so I hopped on the bike and I was shocked when I ended at 35 miles. It was wonderful! I felt amazing. I practiced ingesting nutrition while riding. I was pleasantly surprised the vega sport went down easily and I felt GREAT and I didn't choke and die (clearly). Now I need to work on this type of stuff while running.......
Later around 8pm I want to do some yoga to unwind.
Bed early tomorrow is a long day, very similar to Monday.

Good day. Got up early, did an hour of strength training (total body), and then 22.2 miles of hills on the bike. I am shifting my speedwork run to tomorrow.

What a very long weekend. It did NOT go as planned. I had a few set backs, mainly emotional. I had to cut ties with a long time friend. I am thankful I did my workout on saturday BEFORE I had to deal with all that.
Sunday I got in a great bike ride and my TA postpartum dvd. I also got in a swim at my parents. Sunday was a great day with them, I love them because they totally love my vegan sis and I and have every food a vegan could want stocked and ready. So awesome.
Monday I also biked, I wanted to run but I was emotionally drained. It took so much out of me physically. I did do my TA PP dvd though.
Today I went and ran (finally!!) 4.25 miles and I did suicides (those are fun lol) and I ran the stairs. I also did my TA PP dvd.

I have to fess up to having a few glasses of wine last night and PIGGING out on chips and salsa. Thats so not like me. It wont be happening again. I feel awful today. I shouldnt have done it. I know I was using it as an emotional crutch (this friendship thing really killed me) and I know how BAD that is.

Tonight I am going to take a hot bath, watch a movie with my kids. Tomorrow I have a tempo run of 4 miles and my TA dvd.

I think Saturday I will take more measurments and pictures. My hubby has taken my scale (I wanted him too) so I dont get it back in 30 days!!!! Whatever I need to get over numbers.

So yesterday was a great day, I did 30 minutes of cardio dance to mix things up and then my PP dvd and arms. I ate really well. I made the zucchini "pasta" from the thrive book and it was insanly good.

Today is a rest day. I have decided to switch 100% to tea. No more coffee its killing me. Today I bought a new jogging stroller, rented a cabin for my anniversary/birthday weekend in an amazing state park in PA, called blue knob. Also ate at the amazing vegan place in Scranton and did my grocery shopping :) Tonight I will practice yoga. Its hot as heck here.
This weekend we are headed up to promised land state park, never been there but they have a few beaches and great trails.
