here is a breakdown of week 1:
ran: 23.1 miles
biked: 254.15 miles
swam: 3000 meters
weight trained: 3 times
not a bad week and i felt healthier than the last 8 crappy weeks with the glute/hammy issue lingering. it is still tight at times but not really an issue anymore and i hope it stays that way.
in other news, i got to meet a fellow blogger, Beth B.o.B. from discom-bob-ulated-running blog who lives locally. that's a rare happening. i told her that i think most of my favorite bloggers all seem to live in O-H-I-O (you have to spell it out, right BDD?), Georgia and Texas. this chic is funny as all hell and her blog rocks. i'm sorry i didn't stumble across her sooner but thanks to my buckeye outdoors training log catastrophe, we found each other on daily mile and that my friends is how it all began. i've said it before and it was confirmed today, my blogger friends are the bomb diggity. even though many of us have never met, you know if and when we do, it will be an instant connection ...as if we've known each other for years. today was a perfect example of that.
me and the dicom-bob-ulated runner (triathlete too), Beth.
look how tan we are!
question for my friends: do i look like i could be her mom? do i look THAT old people? i knew all this sun from training for triathlons was going to come back and bite me in the ass but not this soon. anyway, here is the funny story ...the 7 foot tall giant that took our picture asked us after he took it if we were mom and daughter. yeah, can you believe that? Beth tried to make me feel better by saying she thought he may have had vision problems. i'm calling my favorite plastic surgeon tomorrow! anywho, we had a good time hanging and chatting at Panera's. seriously, we probably could have sat there all day and never run out of topics to talk about and the topics were not all triathlon or training related, really. we are way deeper than that. good times!!
i also got to meet up with Bob (aka: 1 hour ironman) on saturday. this was our pic from the last time we rode.
it was not our first time meeting of course ...we are old pals. every once in awhile i am blessed with his presence at out saturday long ride. good seeing you this weekend Bob! come back out soon and stay longer.
so let's make a toast shall we (go ahead, grab your drink and i'll wait) ...
here's to another 19 weeks of healthy, smooth training. can i get an amen?!
much love and peace out!
