The Sunday Report

First let me say thank you to all of you who commented on my last post.  I seem to have struck a chord among all of you, and it is certainly comforting to know I'm not the only one that deals with this!  I loved the comment about finding perfection in our imperfection.  You guys are so wise!!

I am pretty proud of this week's training.  I have had a lot going on, but was still able to hit my workouts.  I did cheat 10 minutes out of one TRX session, but since I've been adding in movement prep, I feel like I kind of made up for it.  I was even able to squeeze in an hour of yoga yesterday.

Speaking of yoga, one of my blog friends, Debbie, who is a yoga instructor in the Adirondacks and also a triathlete, is hosting a 21-day yoga e-course called Unstuck. This is the description she put up on her blog about it:

Take this e-course if you want to:

~start (or jump-start) an oh-so-good feeling home yoga practice
 ~meditate daily to improve focus and find your inner calm.
~climb out of your exercise rut.
~discover what motivates you to get on your mat.~get moving!

Sounds good right?  I'm really considering jumping in on this course.  I've been wanting to do more yoga at home, but have a hard time motivating myself to get on the mat.  I thought about joining my twitter friend @TriShaman in a similar program called Blissology last month, but it was a little to time-intensive for me right now.  Unstuck, on the other hand, seems as though it could be doable.  I asked Debbie how long the daily asanas are, and she said they are about 30 minutes.  Hmmm...something to think about.  Here's a link if you want to check it out.  I'd love to hear from anyone who did something like this...did you feel you got a lot from it?

Anyway, here are the numbers:

(A): 10:39:34
Swim:  2h 3m 6000 yds
Bike:  4h 50m 34s 65.52 mi
Run: 25m  2.40 mi
Aqua-Jogging:  1h 25m
TRX/Movement Prep/Yoga: 1h 56m

Total:  10h 39m 34s

Did any of you get a chance to catch some of the Rev3Tri Costa Rica coverage on the Rev3Tri website?  I watched a little bit yesterday and some this morning as well.  Even if you missed a bit, they have a whole bunch of great videos up there.  I love watching the pro starts.  You can just sense the nervous energy and pent-up excitement coming out of their fingertips.  Kel and I are already considering heading down next year.

Well, Sunday is only half over, and I have to get ready for a Dolce Flutes concert this afternoon.  Have a great week!

  1. All the pics and the live video this morning made the Costa Rica race look so awesome. Annie and I are definitely going down next year - even if it is to just volunteer!

    I was doing yoga once a week but have not the last couple of weeks and need to get back to it! My core is feeling a little "loose in the cage" and yoga always tightens me up fast!


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