The move...

We moved into our new home here and Texas and while there are still boxes yet to be opened, it is SOOO good to be back!!

This month has been crazy and my training took a back seat to injuries and the move but I am happy to say that I will be back with a Whole 30 challenge on August 1st! I will be posting here as well as my FB and Twitter page!

Until then...keep pressing on!

Training W4 6/21 - 6/27

I guess I cannot stay away from my blog too long as once again I am longing to be back posting regularly again. As of now I have been posting mostly to FB but I want to continue my training blogs here as well. I need it. I recently went through old blogs of my races and it was motivating me to press harder even now.

I really do not know where to start as so much as happened these past few months. I guess for a start back here is my W4 Training schedule for this week....

Saturday - 57 min RW, ST and evening 45 min run/easy 
Sunday - 45 RW 
Monday - Swim 2000 yds, evening 45 min run/easy

Loads of blogs to catch up on! Will post more later today.

Training starts again.

June is here and while we are still waiting to move into the new house, I have to get back to regular training despite this busy time in our life.  I have been doing well but recently I was sick for a few days and it knocked me off my program once again. But I am doing better and ready to work hard this week.

My training for this week is as follows.

Monday - RW easy 3 miles with PT
Tuesday - RW 6 miles
Wednesday - Bike 40 mins, Swim 800 yards. 8x25 with RI 20 seconds
Thursday - Bike 40 mins, RW easy
Friday - Swim 800 yards. 3 x100 RI 15 seconds
Saturday - RW 6 miles
Sunday - Rest

I am going to start posting training logs again. They will be short, most likely boring with a bunch of numbers but it will help my training.

Happy to be back. :) Wishing everyone a stellar JUNE!!! Press on!

Taking a break...

I am struggling with my back again. Heading back to the doctor today. As a result, I am taking a break from blogging etc...at this time. I have 3 sites I have to maintain and it is just too much right now. I will be updating on FB as I normally do.

Trying to figure out what is going on....determined to get back to my training. 2013 has been a hard year of injuries for sure.  Bring on 2014 :)

All the best to you all!! Looking forward to posting again very soon!

An update on my progress.

I am doing well, working hard and trying my best to stay on track. Logging on my blog and spark has been another story. I have been posting on my FB page and on dailymile but have not met my goal of posting to my private blog and spark people for accountability.

This past week I completed my first run in months and my knee did well. It was hurting a bit the past few days but overall, it is ok.  I also managed to get in a good, strong 83.4 km's on my spin bike at home. I am trying to focus on getting back to riding as it helps my knee a great deal.

Here is my training schedule this next week -

Friday - 30 mins on the bike - hill intervals with recovery 15 min ride - DONE!! 61 mins
Saturday - 60 mins on the bike - steady ride
Sunday - Walk on the trails for at least an hour, maybe a few running intervals if my knee allows
Monday - 30 mins on the bike - mixed intervals
Tuesday - Rest, stretch....
Wednesday - Walk for 45 mins to an hour 
Thursday - Walk for 45 min to an hour
Friday -  Bike 30 mins hill intervals with recovery 15 mins

Slowly but surely, I am making my way back!!!! I feel encouraged, excited and ready to do all I can to reach my goals.

Have a blessed weekend - stay on track :) Weekends are always hard, but go in with the right mindset and you can do it!

All the best :)

So far so good...

Yesterday I did well. I was unable to get my walk in due to the weather but I will make up for it today.

Food wise, I did great. Water was on track too. I also blended an awesome drink which I intend to make again today. It was simply protein powder, pineapple, cucumber, ginger, water, a small amount of orange juice and kale. It was really good!!!!! 

I also made a great lemon chicken with roasted veggies which was easy and so fantastic! 

I know these posts are not exactally the most exciting but for me, it is about staying accountable to get back on track. So even if it is a short report of my day, it will help me!!! 

Off to make today a success!

Back from Paris!

We are back from Paris and it is time for me to get back on track with my program. This is going to be a short and sweet post for today. My focus right now, reaching my goals!!

I will get straight to it :)

Goals for November 7th - November 11th

1. Juice daily
2. Focus on lean proteins and veggies. Same plan that has worked SO many times for me.
3. Walk for 30 to 45 mins daily. Working up to running again soon! YEAH!!
4. PT work and stretching
5. LOG RESULTS!! As of late I have a habit of doing well and then not logging my results for accountability.

That is all for today :) Time to make it HAPPEN!! Wishing you all a beautiful and blessed day!
