Good morning and Happy St. Patricks Day!
Being that it’s a holiday of major
religious drinking implications, I’ll be over-indulging like most every one else: by drinking 1 or maybe even 2 Bud Light Golden Wheats; and enjoying a day of rest.
We had another strong workout last night, 55 minutes on the bike followed by 30 minutes on the track. Though I walked most of the time on the track, I did start running again. My plantar fascitis/Achilles heel has been responding to the stretching, so I figured I’d give it a go. So I started working on a couch to 5k program to get myself running. My previous running was more like a jog/shuffle. This time I’m looking to actually run. I’m still trying to find a middle ground on effort that lets me run, but doesn’t feel like sprinting. I’m shooting for 12 minute miles initially, hoping to eventually get to 10 minutes.
And I woke up this morning to 313 on the scale again. 2 days in a row is proof that it wasn’t a fluke.
But all that is for tomorrow, today I’ll be relaxing and resting up for another day of hard work tomorrow.
Some other notes:
- Coach Buxton was kind enough to drop an email with some kind words on my post regarding her nutrition presentation and wanted me to add a couple of things that she usually speaks to during the show:
- That she too believes that nutrition is a VERY personal thing.
- That you have to practice nutrition leading up to race day. It’s too easy to forget something, or worse try something new with disastrous results on race day
- The Multisport Expo is coming to Boston this weekend. Rach and I are going, and excited to see all the new gear and learn some new techniques. Further, the tri team is having a social afterwards, which will also be a good time.
