Last week was a great training week. I clocked almost 11 housr of training and it felt amazing.
Swim - 4km
Bike - 140kms (6hrs)
Run - 27kms (2:50hrs)
I mentioned in my last post about my non-existent weight loss and that I was going to start counting calories. Well, I gave Fitday.com another chance and good news.... they must have done some upgrading because it is pretty quick to upload your foods/activities. I lost about two pounds. I am so happy! It really helps to see what you are eating and to be accountable for the calories/fat/carbs you put into your body. I am going to continue to track my food intake and hope that the pounds keep coming off! :)
My bike on Saturday was cut short as my son had his first soccer practice at 1pm and did not get done until 3pm. When I got home I brought my bike outside and then my tube stem just exploded. So now I had to change my first flat on the new bike with no help as John was already on his 145km+ ride. I changed it with ease. :) Now the time was almost 4pm and that left me with little time to do my whole 90km route. I could have tried but did not want to chance losing daylight if something mechanical were to happen. On my way back home I seen a familiar face. John came back to met me and we rode home together. That added another 30kms for him - total 180kms. He is a machine!! :)
I will not be able to run with the Road Rebels on Tuesdays now as my sons soccer games are Tuesday evenings. Now my Tuesdays are non-stop busy. I get up make John breakfast and lunch, make myself lunch, go to work from 8-4, come home and immediately run 8km, then eat supper (when I say eat I mean inhale), drive Tyler to soccer for 6:15 (game is done at 8pm), then go to the pool for 8:20 and swim for 50min or 2kms, relax in the sauna for about 15min, shower, then go home. When we are home I usually have to make John a snack them I am ready for bed. Are you tired yet? lol
