The Sunday Report

Overall, a mixed bag for me this week. Here are the numbers:

Swim: 1h 40m 4800 yds
Bike: 1h 45m (all in spin class)

Total: 3h 25m Ughh....this is totally depressing. Although, during the week I purposely didn't do as much.

Nutrition Challenge: Here is a quick recap...3 points per day, 1 point for eating 3 veggies, 1 point for eating 3 fruits, and 1 point for not overeating or splurging (I've been calling this the self-control point.) My goal was 18 points this week out of 21 possible.

Total Points: 17

So close, but I totally ruined it today! I actually should give myself negative points for self-control. Man, weekends are hard, aren't they? All of my lost points this week were self-control points. One thing I did notice was with all of the fruits and veggies, I didn't have much room for other foods, unless I was overeating.

I was pretty pleased with my nutrition focus this week, although there is obviously still room for improvement. I'm upping the ante for this week's challenge.

1. The point system will be as follows: 1 point for 4 veggies (instead of 3), 1 point for 3 fruits, 1 point for self-control.
2. On Tuesday I am starting the Fall 12-week No Sugar Challenge on BT. I did the spring one, and it was incredibly difficult and eye-opening. I'm hoping my second go at it will be a little easier.

I still haven't decided what to do for Skinnyman. I am leaning strongly towards racing, but walking the 5K. My foot feels great, and I don't think walking will adversely affect it, but I do think I might actually don my running shoes this week and take a walk around the block or something just to be sure.

I really miss running. I miss the alone time. I miss the early morning quiet. I miss how I feel when I am done. I miss how hard I sleep after a good run. Two weeks down, four to go...

Happy training!


  1. Go for it ... if you can bike + swim with your foot not hurting, and walk the 5K, I don't see why not !

  2. Glad you got a nice, restful week! Take that walk and let us know how your foot feels -- 1/3 of the way there!


Woo-hoo!! I want to hear from you!
