Thanks to Jill Conyers for hosting the link up!
AND thanks everyone for your sweet wishes on yesterday’s big announcement. We are thrilled!! Now can you see why I decided to back out of the half this week? While I was assured by my doctor that I was fine to keep doing what I was doing – the thought of the half marathon made me uneasy. I was already a little worried about it because I wasn’t able to increase my mileage and train like I had in the past… it just was nerve wracking. Plus, the only reason I was going to do it was to get the special medal – and the chances of me doing Dallas at the end of the year are slim to none. SO? I backed out. Bummer… but I feel good about my decision. It is going to be INCREDIBLY hard not going to California this August to run Dumbo (I still may try to do it)… and I have already cried real tears about missing out on Wine and Dine with all my friends. That race is literally on my due date. But it’s okay… I have a new goal I am working towards this year!
So – here’s my week in a nutshell:
Monday – Swim 300 yards, Run 20 minutes
Tuesday – Bike 8 miles
Wednesday – Swim 300 yards, Walk 30 minutes
Thursday – Rest
Run 40 minutesRun 4 miles
Took me over 40 minutes… but like I said before, I much prefer mile to minute goals.
Saturday – Bike 10 miles
Sunday – Rest
This week was pretty tame. Next week I have my first “brick” workout which is a big deal in triathlon training. Next week I also lose my Thursday rest day, which I am kind of bummed out about. I really love my Thursday rest day. But it’s all good! I am counting down the days until my first tri!! (and i am already scoping out what sticker i want to get for my car!) Finishing my first triathlon will be amazing, but finishing my first triathlon while pregnant on Mother’s Day will be even sweeter!!!
Also? I have a few really FUN 5Ks coming up. And TWO of them involve beer. Go figure?!
