So as you all know my sisters got their hair chopped and congrats to them for being way braver then me. When I was young I typically had short hair and because of this I am still burnt out and hope to have long hair my whole life. Plus, I look like a male when the hair gets cut.
Here are my luscious chlorine filled, split ended locks of training love. I decided I am not touching them until then end of summer. Why pay $$ when I am just gonna go hop in the pool the next day.
So speaking of the pool my tri training has started =) Although, I am running a 10k Saturday so this week is slightly easier. Workouts this week:
Monday: -Swam 975m (525m swim followed by 6x50's with 10 sec recovery and 6x100's with 20 sec recovery) I did this during adult swim while Peter ate a snack on the side....
-Later that day I Ran 5 miles with my brother and tried to kick his butt. He was lying on the grass when we finished and panting so I am thinking.... mission accomplished =) Nice work Bro.
Tuesday: Running Club HARD workout. 20x400's! Thats right 20. We ran 1x400 at 5k pace directly followed by 1x400 at marathon pace and just kept repeating it for a total of 5 miles. Try it. I found it hard, my body didn't like changing up the pace so often... I am a marathoner, I stick to the same pace for hours so switching it up like that really threw me for a breathing loop. After running club I went to barbell class at Lifetime.
Here's my new favorite recovery smoothie. Fruit is in season and because Sarah keeps posting pics of her smoothies with spinach I decided to contribute my own green smoothie pic. Cheers Sarah!
Rasberries, Strawberries, Blackberries (they apparently are hiding), Mango, Spinach, Ice, Orange Juice, Protein Powder.
Wednesday: 21 Mile bike ride with a short swim in the middle. A few friends and myself rode the Sprint Tri loop and then hopped in the pool and quickly busted out a 525m swim.
Thursday: Ran 5 Miles with eyes stinging with sweat.
This is my new favorite salad..... does anything look familiar?! If you guess all the ingredients listed in the above smoothie you are correct-o! (except ice, juice and protein of course) I also grilled some asparagus, cut some cucumber and threw in some carrots and cherry tomatos to complete this lunchtime of delight.
Today: I dunno yet. My 10k is tomorrow and my running Guru says to do nothing.....but I dunno, maybe a short swim?
Saturday: 10k. Wish me luck. I have no idea how I'll do. I am sure I'll let you know regardless of either the misery or awesomeness to follow so stay tuned =)
Last night for a snack I decided to smother some animal crackers with peanut butter (I ended up using about 6 spoonfuls of peanut butter) and drink up some milk. My milk man comes today and I hate having an overload of milk so I am bound and determined to finish it all up before the next load comes in. Here's to milk! yum.
So guys, how is training going for y'all?
Anyone else stinging from sweat?
What about your hairdos? Done anything crazy awesome like my sista's lately?
What kind of snacks do you like to eat at night?
I am always changing mine up but I am always eating something. It is out of pure habit I must have food before bed.
