i'm tired. i need time off to work on my blog. i would like a solid block of undisturbed time to redesign my blog, which is something i've really wanted to do. i have a picture in my mind's eye of what i want it to look like but again, just need TIME to do it. i'm a virgo and we are perfectionists...we don't do anything half-assed! i tried to do it last night but a piece meal approach isn't working. gotta study the schedule at work this week and see where i can carve out a day off or a half day at least.
from the training front, this week was a really good week. i felt strong, didn't overdo anything, a nice balance if i do say so myself. i mentioned we were doing the strawberry century today on an earlier post but as we got to the interstate, the fork in the road if you will, we both decided to head north instead and hit the hills since that is what we need to focus on most with the upcoming 3-state-3-mountain Challenge (3S3M for short). gotta keep the training specific! we got in a solid, hard 70 miles with lots and lots of hill repeats. we had a blast! anyway, 2 weeks after the 3S3M ride, i'm signed up for an oly distance triathlon scheduled for May 15th. swim buddy and i are going to do our best to get in 2 open water swims with a tri coach in April so we can both be ready for our May events. plus, i really want to test out the new wetsuit.
here are my numbers for the week:
total time: 2:45:00
total distance: 25.0 mi.
total time: 9:00:30
total distance: 188.0 mi.
total time: 2:00:00
total distance: 5000 m.
weights x 3 (a mix of weights with week 1 of the hundred push challenge) bring on week 2!
abs x 1 (usually i get in 2 or 3 ab sessions...not sure how i only got just 1 in?)
december 23rd, 2009, how much fun it was going to be and how i've met (not in real life...yet) so many awesome people who have their own cool blogs too. i've really enjoyed reading and learning about how everyone kinda got started with running, cycling, swimming, doing triathlons, losing a lot of weight, coming back from serious health issues, getting back in shape, etc....there are lots of inspiring folks in blog-land and i'm loving every minute of it.
i think that's all i got for now. all in all, a great weekend!
don't forget that tomorrow at 12pm est, the RoadID giveaway ends, so go here if you haven't already, follow the directions and maybe you could win one of the 3 RoadID's i have up for grabs. the winners will be picked by random.org and i will post the results some time on tuesday, march 30th. good luck!
much love and peace out ya'll!
