Week 9, Day 7
Rest

I had to do a lot of running around out of town today so I took day off completely. I ate some chipotle and it was amazing. Should have not gotten any quac but oh well. That is my fat splurge for the week.

Week 10, Day 4
Cardio / Rest

50 minutes on the bike trainer in the basement.





Notes: Goddamn do I love cycling. The trainer has become less boring since I have been so stoked for cycling this year. Not sure if this will be the year I actually start racing but I am taking my training to a whole nother level.

My diet has been goodish. I have to stop the little bit of snacking on these super tasty chips we got from costco.

Been very very light on the sugar. Kind of dying for a pb&j.
The carbs I am playing pretty cool with also.
Protein is still good. Adding some more variety has been awesome. Beans, tofurky products and stuff like that has been so delicious.
Fat is good. Putting light amounts of tahini, the occasional almond milk and avocado in things.

I know I have gained a little bit of weight back but I am ok with that. I am still lifting hard as fuck and now that I am cycling I am sure I will be fine.
Or atleast I keep telling myself that. Lets see what happens in the next few weeks.

Switching things around a bit...

Signed up for my first cycling Criterium race at the end of the month. Instead of saying "I am going to train hard and make next year the year I start racing" I just went ahead and signed up for USAC and a race. So stoked!
I only have a couple of weeks to bust my ass and train. My goal is to trying to finish in the top half (50 racers). It's a cat 5 race geared towards beginners. As long as I finish the race I will be happy.
Have to start somewhere.

Weather has been amazing lately. Going to get out on the bike again tomorrow. Probably knock out another 30 miles tomorrow, weights/hard cycling Wednesday and then a group ride with the LBS Thursday.
