Rainy day today, and I thought the Y would be packed, but it was really empty, including the pool. That meant I had a lane all to myself so I could swim slow and drift around all I wanted LOL! I did a swim/bike brick today.
Swim: 750 yards (sounds better than 30 laps!)
Bike: 45 minutes at 13.5 mph.
Felt pretty good, although the stationary bike is so much more different than my road bike. Since I am a shorty, I sit very upright on the stationary bike because the seat has to be low enough to reach the pedals. On my bike, which is made for shorter people, I lean slightly forward and can actually bend right over the handle bars to reduce drag if I want. Oh, and the irritating thing on the stationary today? I haven’t used the bike since my birthday last week, and I had to remember to input 41 as my age instead of 40!
I’m definitely ready for the triatholon. I will work some on speed this week and a couple more bricks. I need to remember to start tapering in a few weeks. The triatholon is about a month away now! Eeeek! I am excited and scared at the same time.
Not sure if the workout today was extra tiring (didn’t seem to be), but I actually had to lay down and nap for a while this afternoon. I could not keep my eyes open while I was working, so I had to take a break.
Best meal pic of the day included a food that MizFit was talking about today: Strawberries!
This delicious mixture is Fage greek yogurt with a drizzle of honey, chopped strawberries, and Kashi GoLean cereal. Packed full of calcium, fiber and protein. Love it!
I eat about 2 pounds of strawberries a week, and the flavor of this week’s boxes are soooo good! I can’t decide if my favorite berry is strawberry or blueberry.
Question: What is your favorite berry?
