I think this will be short this week, but you know how I am once I get talking!
I have been MIA because I was preparing for this, which took place yesterday in Brooklyn, NY. It was am amazing day that I will remember forever.
If you read the article, this picture is of me and the professor who I took the class with in 1996. Yes, I’m old.
In other news, I missed 2 workouts last week, but I feel ready for the biathlon. This week is tapering week, which means that you do some workouts, but nothing intense so your body can rest before the big day. I’m psyched to do it and then start training harder for the next 5K. I ran 4 miles on Saturday, which almost killed me. I am pretty sore. I’m thinking maybe I should have listened to my body more. Lesson learned.
This week’s workout schedule is tame compared to the past 3 weeks!
Monday – Off/PT exercises/yoga
Tuesday – Bike 40
Wednesday – Run 20/PT exercises
Thursday – Off
Friday – Bike 20 min very easy, walk for 10 min, easy run for 5 and walk 5 min
Saturday – Off/PT exercises
Sunday – Run 2 miles, Bike 12 miles, Run 2 miles — VICTORY!
That ain’t nothin’!
As Comment Warrior I’m working with Leah and Lisa on some strategies to make it easier for everyone to get comments and give comments. Also the Mamavation campaign is accepting applications!! A little about the campaign:
Are you struggling with your weight? Would you like a supportive community to hold you up while you are learning healthy living? There IS a place where “digital moms” can go while online to find a sense of real community. It’s called Mamavation. (Check out the #mamavation hashtag on twitter.)
Mamavation is a healthy living sorority and 7-week bootcamp for two special moms, Mamavation Moms. The Mamavation Moms enter into a “reality TV” type experiment in social media. They are given fitness equipment, a professional nutritional & fitness plan, weekly coaching, and are supported by the Mamavation Sistahood for accountability. After 7 weeks of hard work, they have the tools they need to continue on, but always have a permanent home with the campaign.
Tonight on Mamavation TV, Pete Cohen will be sharing his nutrition program with us and 2 people will be winning the package!! I’ve checked this program out and it’s really interesting.He’s focused on eating good food, obviously, but not starving us to death like some other popular nutrition sites do. He tells us what we need, customized, including what herbs, veggies and vitamins we need to improve on. Very holistic. He’s a cool dude.
Well, I’m off to comment! Have a great week, ladies. Oh, a question, have you signed up for any events? Doing anything new activity-wise? I would love to hear about it! I know some of you signed up for 5Ks. Tell me again! I missed you all this week!
Congrats to our SOTW Joanna of @way2gomom!
