I need my Triathlon people and their help.
I know how much I have always detested them and rambled off about how biking really hurts my hips, but I want to enter a sprint triathlon-you know test out the waters with the biking portion.
See how it goes. What I don’t want or need, is to spend a fortune for a bike only to find out that I actually I enjoy biking as much as I thought I would. (meaning none). What is a girl to do? I have a beach cruiser bike (which would most certainly not be okay) and my brother has a mountain bike (which I really don’t want to use either but is better than option A). Anywho any advice and words of wisdom would be amazing. The race is:
So if any of my Tri pros (or biker pros) could give me some advice-we could be biker bffs too.
Also yesterday-I was testing out larger pictures versus using smaller. I haven’t quite decided what works better with my layout yet. So tell me your opinions on that too.
I have been reflecting a lot about my blog lately and deciding what sort of path I want to take with it. Do I want to become a strictly food blog, do I want to just focus on swimming, on running, on both, on my nonsense of a life, on my curly hair, on math…you know the list is quite endless.
Then it hit me-I started my blog with the intentions of recording my healthy eats of an athlete (and true eats always) but it has kind of migrated a lot into my shenanigans and such. I’m okay with that as well, although I’m not too sure my life is that exciting. Anywho, I’m going to get back into doing weekly tallies of my working out to get a good feel for my training. I didn’t really do this when I was injured because how exciting can saying that I spent my life on an Arctrainer be? Yeah…not so much.
Please don’t train how I train, it is what works for me and I don’t intend for it to be a schedule for how you should train. I take rest days when my body needs it, not scheduled in and that has always worked well. We are not the same person and you are better off that way because god knows that world doesn’t need my twinnie.
So stats this week are
5 hours of ArcTrainer
31 miles (24 outdoors)
2 lifting sessions
Oh yes and no heel pain. That is very important. Actually-the most important!
My goal next week is to replace 30 minutes of my Arc time with about 3.5 miles so we will see how that goes. So here are the goals for next week:
35 miles (as many outdoors as possible)
2 hours swimming
2 lifting sessions
4 hours of elliptical
Oh yes and about the history being made (minus my decision about Tris).
GASP! It’s true. I’m going to swim for 1 hour tomorrow and get between 3000-4000 yards of slow easy swimming in. Wish me luck.
With that I leave you-and the fact that Julie makes the best French Toast in the world I had an awesome weekend at her house.
Question for you:
What is your favorite topic to ramble off about in your blog (food, athletics, knitting…)? If you don’t have a blog what is your favorite topic to talk about with your friends?
Oh yes and any Bike advice would be oh so helpful.
