Exercise Tracker (yesterday): 3 miles walk/run; Swimming 50 minutes

Oops, forgot to post yesterday. Yesterday I lost .7 and today I lost .4. So Im right back into LIW again, just in time for the weekend.

This summer Ive been eating lots of whole foods, and loving it. I've been trying to make a new recipe every week, and trying new veggies, so yesterday I did both. I made okra fries for the first time (okra lightly coated in olive oil and sea salt, oven for 15 minutes at 400 degrees)...and really enjoyed them.

Next on the agenda is zucchini. Ive had it before, but never found a way to cook it that Ive enjoyed, so this time I am going to try it roasted, in a lasagna, and in a raw dish. Ill share the recipes after I try them...dont want to share anything that isnt delicious and nutritious, right (says the poet who doesnt know it)?

Got one week before my tri, so biking is first and foremost on the exercise schedule for this weekend. When I ride, my knee and neck still hurt, so I have to find a way to get a little more comfortable. There is the TOUR DE TINICUM this weekend, and one of the routes is 34 miles, so Im probably going to do that Sunday morning if the weather cooperates (yes, Ive only done 12 miles so far at a single session this season). And then next week, Ill focus on doing bricks (two sports following one another) on M, W, and Friday and tues and thurs Ill focus on practicing transition. I still need to figure out how to get my shoes to stay on the pedals without dragging during transition from swim to bike and bike to run (since I got new tri shoes that stay on the pedals and then you slide your foot into them once you are on the bike-saving you time), in addition to figuring out how to get my foot into the shoes without toppling over. Thats going to look pretty comical to passerbys, Im sure.

If any of you want to take a step towards triathlon, let me know, I would love to put together a coaching group. Maybe help you guys do you first one next spring?

On that note, back to work. See you on Monday...hopefully in one piece!
