Training Week 5
Tuesday, July 17, 2012
Wow! Week 5 already. That's more than half way! This week went ok exercise wise, and terrible diet wise. I missed my additional run after biking on Tuesday because I had a dinner to get ready for, then missed the next days run after strength training because I had a doctor's appt. I was thrown off on Thursday because I tried to fit my gym time in while my son was in wakeboarding and there was a aerobic swim class overtaking the pool so I couldn't swim. So instead, I ran 7 miles at a 9 min pace. I usually don't run quite that fast, but I have been getting faster as I really push myself on the treadmill. Outside running is a whole other story and I average about a 10 minute mile. Especially with this heat, it's really hard to train outdoors even though I know the tri is outdoors and I have to get used to it. I did run outside yesterday and I felt like I was barely moving and was completely drenched after just 3 miles. Monday is supposed to be my rest day, but I was a blob on Sunday and didn't do anything, so I tried to make up my long run. Weekends are just hard to get motivated. We often go out to eat and run errands or relax.
As for my diet this week, it pretty much went out the window. We ate out a lot! I had 2 scoops of ice cream in a chocolate dipped cone from Sebastion Joe's on Sunday after stuffing my face with sushi. Also my boyfriend and I celebrated our anniversary on Saturday night and he bought me 3 huge bars of chocolate. He knows I love chocolate and have no willpower when it is right in front of me. I can usually be good about not buying it, but if it is there, I'll eat it. So of course, I've been munching on that all weekend and yesterday and probably the rest of the week.
This weekend we are going to a wedding. My boyfriend is in the wedding, so Friday is the rehearsal and dinner, then Saturday is the wedding. It's very fancy pants so I am sure to eat a ton of food and drink copious amounts of wine. All the while trying to fit in my workouts, but we'll see.
