RR: Oh. My. Goodness. Bike/C25k brick today was a SLOG. Esp. the bike. I had to cut off the highest resistance portion of the 5 minute chunks, and extend the other portions just to survive. I seriously could NOT do level 11, whereas a week ago I was kicking a** and taking names. I'm telling you, progesterone is like methadone or something for this mama. I usually wake at 5:45, but after O-ing I drag my sorry self out of bed at 7:15! It's crazy. But the run part was still strong. I
the running part
I found two sprint triathlons at the end of the summer. The first one happens two weeks after I get back from a two week road trip
So maybe that could be a warm up, as the second is two weeks later and on the same course (or at least the swim is). Question/Concern is, can I really "train" for the run? I think if I put any standards around my running I'm in for trouble... I know I could complete 3 miles, but I also know I'm competitive and will want to see just how fast I can do it. Hmm...
NRR: I'm trying to cut back on sugar sugar, because I tend not to restrict my diet much as I am mostly a whole foods eater. But I do eat A LOT of chocolate (too much sugar and caffeine). Both Dh and I are coming to terms with entering middle age. We're both "skinny-fat" (although me less fat these days
) so we can get away with eating not so great, but we should be eating better for health and longevity. That's just so geriatric!
RM: That usually happens to my feet when I get new shoes (which obviously hasnt happened in a long time). My feet get numb for the first 5-10 runs. I always thought the shoes were to cushy (why would that matter, I dont know), but as soon as they got broken in a bit, my feet felt normal
