Living and training in the here and now. I used to worry about everything but not any more. NOW I focus on what's in my control and don't worry about it isn't. Feel free to follow along as I continue my journey to become an Ironman!
It's almost time again for another race! This Sunday I will be running in the Chilly Half Marathon in Burlington. I checked the vrpro.ca website and found my bib number, now it feels real. Now I am getting a little nervous but I'm looking forward to it too.
I missed a few workouts this week, I was down and out on the coach for a couple days not feeling well but today I was feeling much better so decided I hit the pool for a swim after work. I did a few of the drills we usually follow on Wednesday mornings. The pool was pretty quite and I really enjoyed gliding through the water while trying to remember all the things I learned in the past two months. Keeping my head down, following through on my stroke and keeping my arms in the proper position...swimming is a lot more to remember and harder than it looks but really I just I felt calm and relaxed in the water. It was a good swim tonight.
Tomorrow I plan to get to spin then a short run Friday night. I have to pick up my race kit Saturday morning downtown Burlington then I am just gonna take it easy and stay off my feet.
I was getting my lunch ready for tomorrow and thought I would share my container tree... I have a salad with romaine, broccoli, red peppers and onion flakes on the side (these are amazing and go with everything). In the white container I have chicken piccata and on top of that I have mixed frozen berries (that I will have with the protein powder and some almonds ) and on top is the citrus maple salad dressing (this is so tasty!) I forgot to add the banana for the photo but that will be my pre workout snack and that right there will get me through the day.
