Wrap- Up







  • Rest


Numbers breakdown

  • Swim:  2450 yds
  • Bike: 31 miles + 60 min Spin
  • Run: 8 miles   
  • Strength: 3 days
  • Misc: 20 mins

Notes and Thoughts

  • I added a third session of NROLFW this week to finish off Stage 1. The plan is now to continue with the special workouts this week and then take the recommended week of rest while I’m on vacation next week.
  • Running miles were low again this week. I’m going to have to figure out a way to fit in another run or raise the mileage/time for runs.
  • Trading my planned track run for a fun run was mentally needed.
  • I’m getting faster! Holding a 15 mph bike ride for 26 miles is a big YAY in the training book!
  • Sunday’s bike collision was an unplanned set back that I’m going to see reflected in next week’s wrap up. I’m crossing my fingers it won’t be too bad, but who knows? It’s better to give my knee all the rest it needs rather than pushing it too soon.

This coming week is going to be interesting. My fingers are crossed it won’t be too bag though!

Today’s Lunch

Two whole wheat tortillas stuffed with olive hummus, tomato, mushrooms, feta, spinach, and a balsamic vinegar.


Love. ๐Ÿ™‚

I could definitely feel a difference when I woke up this morning from when I went to bed yesterday. The knee swelled up a bit over night and the bruising is starting to break through. Can more ยป

Babysitting Newbies

July 4, 2011

Derek and I took our first stab at co-babysitting tonight. Let’s just say that neither of us had ever been alone with a newborn before and the last time I babysat a baby – of any age – I had to be driven to the parents’ house because I was too young to drive myself. more ยป
