Good Day!

Today, I did really well with my eating and exercising! I stayed in my WW points, and I only had 1 diet pepsi all day. I am having a bit of withdrawal as I had gotten too lenient about drinking them when I wanted.

Tonight, the Wesley Chapel Tri Team met to do 4 one mile repeats. We would go out for a half a mile easy and then run harder back. I have been doing such short intervals for so long now (i modified the 5 min run and 30 sec walk to be 3 mins and 30 secs over the summer) that doing a mile straight without stopping four times in a row was a bit challenging especially on the harder half each time. I was happy to do it though, and I felt great after! Mark came to the workout which was super super fun!!!!!

Monday - New Start

Today is a new beginning. I have been pretty good on the exercise over the last few months, but I have been slack on the eating. Today is the end to that and a new beginning on eating healthy. I know I feel  better when I eat healthier, and I really don't know why I let myself eat crap when I am struggling in life. But, I do, and now I must correct it again. So, here is to a new start.

Rest Day

Today was a down day. I didn't do any exercise, and my legs were a bit sore from my run yesterday. I decided to let them recover before putting any more stress on my foot (limping today) or on my legs.

Training Begins for Jacksonville Marathon

Assuming my left foot will stand up to the training, I am going to do my first marathon on December 19th in Jacksonville. My left foot has been bothering me on the outside of the foot since the 70.3 race in Augusta a few weeks ago. I have run sporadically for short distances since, but I haven't been consistent or long yet.

Today, I officially started training.  I ran 8.75 miles, and it was hard but fun. I ran one part of the last mile really fast for me. It felt pretty good, but I was really glad to be done.

20 Mile Bike Ride and Short Run

Today, I met Carmen and Lydia for a 20 mile ride. I tried to push the pace a little on the way back to work my legs some. Otherwise, it was just a relaxing, fun ride. We did a short run after. Back in the saddle after my race!


Today, I rode 56 miles at the Veteran's. I worked on some hills and enjoyed the ride a lot. I did a short run after

October 1 - Nothing

Today, I am starting back posting every day. I took a little break on my posting as I was getting overwhelemd with too much going on in my life. However, I am going to try to post at least several times a week if not every day.

Today, I was a bum. :)
