OK So I haven't updated this blog in almost 2 weeks now! Not because I'm lazy well maybe a little. It is just that I'm crazy busy but when I'm going to narrate what Ive been up to I'm not sure it is super exciting. Unless you want to hear about my last swim etc...
So anyways lets do it short and sweet.
Last week was my last big triathlon training week. It also realized that for the past 14 month I have been working out at least 3-6 days a week! That is an accomplishment since in the past I would stick to a routine to stop 4 month later take a few month break and go back at it.
This coming sunday is my last triathlon of 2009. It is still a sprint distance but a little longer 750M swim instead of 450, 12.5M bike ride instead of 9M and a 5K run. I'm anxious because it will be my first tri I won't have as many friends there to talk to before the event and it is way too complicated to have B come with the family. Also this time I'm flying solo meaning no swim buddy.
This weeks training has been light, 2.9M on the treadmill pushing the pace a little to see how it feel to run at 8:30min/mile, swim today slow but steady and I will spin a little tomorrow or saturday.
The following week will also be light to recover and then I am tackling my half marathon training for january and a time goal between 2:10 (9:54 min/mile) and 2:05 (9:30 min/mile).
Besides training or working out life has been hell busy. I really need the 30 min at work I lost when MAC started kindergarten. I have given up on being able to handle laundry and hired B back! At this point I don't care how the laundry is folded as long as it is folded!
We celebrated our 10 year anniversary by taking the day off. After dropping off the kids to school, we went for a 6M run around Mission Bay, followed by brunch at the Mission cafe yummy! We spent most of the afternoon at fashion valley shopping, B found a pair of shoes and I bought the minni pants from JCrew. This year I'm totally going for the Audrey Hepburn look. I'm wearing flats 80% of the times.
In the evening we went to Market for dinner with our neighbour and had a fantastic time. This restaurant is amazing!
At home since Trader Joes keeps dropping all my no cook night items has forced me to cook more. My latest creation/find is Arugula salad and yes I even make the garlic croutons fresh each time I make the salad!
- Olive Oil
- Lemon juice
- Garlic croutons (bread, butter and garlic)
- Parmesan (sliced)
It is super fresh and really really tasty.
Tonight if I have enough grapes left I will try a new chicken recipe with grapes and white wine otherwise maybe burrito.
I have to say with the training and the clouds I crave comfort food and I'm satisfying every bit of that hunger. Monday I made gorgonzola pasta, Tuesday steak and mash potatoes and yesterday pasta with meat sauce...
