How did it get to be Tuesday? and July? My usual reports are late, late, late, and my only excuse is that I've been busy doing my trimommy thing! I guess that is a pretty good excuse.
Along with training the past week, I've been trying to make summer fun for the boys, and have also been playing quite a bit with Symphony Syracuse. I also have some upcoming performances that have prompted me to actually practice!! I also ate a few too many treats and ended up not liking the scale this morning at all!!
Whenever I weigh myself and I don't like it, I try to move the scale to a different spot in the desperate hope that it was wrong...it hardly every is! Don't you just love my optimism, though? So, with less than two weeks until Musselman Half, I will tighten up my eating a lot - no treats (well, not too many treats) and really paying close attention to hydration, training and recovery fueling.
My training is going really well. I'm feeling very hopeful and confident going into the race. I've had some great runs the past few weeks, which is doing a lot to boost my confidence in my run fitness, which is where I was most nervous just a month ago.
Here are my numbers from last week:
Swim: 2h 7m 6400 yds
Bike: 6h 35m 39s 112.20 mi
Run: 2h 29m 23s 15.51 mi
Total: 11h 42m 02s
...and my numbers for June:
Swim: 12.14h 33780yds ~ 19.2 mi
Bike: 23.49h 373.6 mi
Run: 12.27h 71.02mi
Total: 47h 54m
On another note, I received some interesting news this week that opened up a lot of possibilities for me in regards to triathlon. I'm not going to go into it just yet, but suffice it to say, I have a lot to think about. I'm nervous, but excited at the same time. It will certainly be interesting to see how everything plays out. It is times like this that I find if I just flow with things and approach them with great faith, the right decision becomes very clear!!
Have a wonderful week!
