I have still not gotten over my fear of strength training alone in the gym, so I still haven’t gone to the gym alone to lift. Despite having perused this book.
But, on the upside, I’m still remaining conscious of pushing myself to do things other than cardio to keep strong.
Monday: Barre Burn
Wednesday: hot yoga
Friday: forgot to blog about it, but I did hot yoga again with Selena
That’s a total of four hours of strengthening. I’ve been shooting for 120 minutes/2 hours, so I’m pleased with that.
It’s been nice not having a training plan since I finished my last half-marathon last month, but I think I thrive on training plans, so I’m going to start training this week for my upcoming sprint tri.

The race isn’t for another 10 weeks, but I’m starting early and just doing weeks one and two twice each. I’ll be doing Physique for my strength until I run out of classes. I have an incredibly busy month of travel–by June 1, I will have spent time in: NY, NJ, MA, MD, DC, NC and possibly RI–so I’ll likely have to move some of these workouts around and possibly forgo a few. I’m totally doing this race for fun, so I’m okay with that. I don’t know much about triathlon-ing, so I don’t know what a good time is or isn’t (and don’t want to know!)
I had a turkey burger, brown rice and broccoli for lunch today.
When I got home, I realized I didn’t have much food (being in NJ yesterday meant that I didn’t get to go grocery shopping), but I still wanted to challenge myself to cook. I’ve been spending too much money on eating out lately. I made an easy egg wrap for dinner. I scrambled two eggs with a bit of almond milk and threw in some salsa. Boom. Dinner in less than 5 minutes.
One of my things that’s been on my blog to-do list for a while is to put up a FAQ page. So what do you want to know?
