420fest slowed me down :P

So this past weekend was 420fest, and I'll admit, I totally slacked on the training! :(  Oh well! 

Wednesday I rode to Big Tex and the weather was SUPER NICE!  It was a great ride and I got to hang with some great friends and grab a beer :)  It was about 12 miles round trip.

Thursday morning I started my morning core workout.  I did 100 crunches, 2 one minute planks holds, and 2 sets of 12 girl push ups.

My abs are sore today!  I rested this am, but I plan to do a run after work today with Mike & Nismo.

Trail Running in Deactur

I took Nismo for a Jog to the Path today.  He did good, it's absolutely more of a workout when I'm training him to jog with me.  We ran about 3 miles.  We took the neighborhood path and I set out on some of the off road trails.   I was pleasantly surprised to learn that there are over 15 miles of connceting wood trails from my neighborhood!!!  Awesome!  And we can mtn them as well!

My jog felt good, I wanted to head to the pool today.  Must...  Get...  Pool..  Time...!!  53 days till the race!!!!

Jogging 2.6 miles

Yesterday I ran another 2.6 miles with Mike.  I'm so much slower than he is, I'm blame it on my short stature!  I was pretty sore from my 2 day ago run, which was also the first run in more than a month.  I was feeling it pretty hard in my legs. At first my Quads were burning, then my calfs and shins.  On fire.  But Mike pushed me harder and I ran more than I would have if I was running alone.  I was crazy tire when we got back.  Now time for REST day!

I'm heading to Carries Bridal today, for their $99 Dress Sample day..  We will see if there is anything worth there!

Triathlon on the calendar & A Wedding Dress to fit into!

66 Days till the Summer Sizzler Spring Triathlon on Lake Lanier - June 10th 7am
550 Yard Swim / 15 Mile Bike / 3.11 Run


I went for a run in my new neighborhood, it's very hilly, but leads to a great elevated bridge path that connects three parks in the area.   my quads are really sore today.. My calf were aching on the run, but they feel fine today. :)
 

I need to kick into gear some consistent workouts!!  Looking forward to this race, it's my first triathlon in 2 years!  Eeek!

Ciao,
