I think I’m currently the only one posting and possibly training right now.. M? T? Are you guys training

Anyhoo, I was pretty good this week with training and eating overall. Counting from Sunday, here’s my training for the week:

* Sunday – Rode 21 miles

* Monday – Swam 1800

* Tuesday – Rode 27 miles (didn’t end up riding home from the train as I had the BF pick me up)

* Wednesday – Swam 1700, didn’t end up doing track work out as my back hurt real bad

* Thursday – Rest day

* Friday – Swam 1300 straight, no stopping. Got bored and got out of the pool. I have a run planned for later on this afternoon.

* Saturday – Have a bike ride planned for 25 – 30 miles

* Sunday – We get our wet suits on Sunday so we’re swimming in Aquatic Park (YUCK!) and then going for a run with the Team in Training team. Should be a good time even though I am NOT looking forward to swimming in Aquatic Park. Soooo gross.

Overall, I’m FINALLY starting to feel a little bit stronger and faster with my respective sports (save running but at least I’m running more). I’m excited to see what August brings in terms of training. I’ll be stepping up the running, the swimming, and the biking throughout the month of August. I also need to get my Fundraising going because I’ll need all funds by mid-August I think.

Anyone have any great ideas for a Fundraiser?


Team in Training Update – Week 3 June 23, 2008

So I’ve decided to capture my Team in Training updates on this blog for all the world to read. This week marks the start of week three of training for the Pac Grove tri and there’s honestly not that much to report. Pathetic.
For most of last week I was sick with a head cold and lots and lots of fun congestion. It started on Tuesday evening and Wednesday turned into a full on cold. I had swum last week on Monday after a straight run of biking two Thursdays ago, swimming two Fridays ago, Mermaid Tri, TnT on Sunday, and then the swim on Monday. I guess my body had enough because on Tuesday when I finally took a rest day, I got sick. I finally felt better and able to breathe on Friday but then it was like 95 degrees in SF and I just decided to not push it and to continue to rest.

Saturday I got in some cardio with brisk weekend shopping and then Sunday I just cleaned my house and hung out with my BF. I’m back on track this week though with swimming on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, biking on Tuesday and Friday, and running on Saturday. Then I’ve got a TnT practice on Wednesday and Sunday so that should be good times.

This week also marks something else special for me…. *drumroll* Friday is my 27th Birthday!!!! And yes, I’m one of those people who feel that my birthday is like a national holiday or something. Woo Hoo! In honor of my birthday, please make a donation!



I just got back from swimming. Here’s my set:

5 x 200 (Alternating 200 Free, 200 IM) on 4:00 minutes 

10 x 100 (Alternating 100 Free, 100 IM) on 2:10 minutes

100 warm down


Now it’s time for lunch and to get some work done
