June 5th - bad journaler, bad, bad!

I have not been keeping up with my records. But for the record I rode 12 miles on the exercise bike and went 0.75 miles on the treadmill. All this indoors at the hotel gym. I was not going to attempt to exercise in 95 degree humid weather. Two days ago I did 30 minutes on the elliptical machine and 30 on the treadmill. Not quite triathlon training but exercise nonetheless. Plus lots and lots of walking around San Antonio. I do not even miss having a car. :o)

Tuesday May 13th

Ran ~ 2 miles while daughter in ballet. It's getting easier, I'm running farther and walking less. Can't wait to run the whole thing without stopping. If I could just shut off my mind I think my body could do it. I brought my new ipod (thanks to the hub and mother's day) - it probably helped make things go faster too.

Yoga - Anusara class. Lots of arm and leg work today.

Food Journal:

Breakfast: 1/2 cup bear naked whole grain cereal with honey. Coffee with 1% milk.

Lunch: 16 oz smoothie (strawberries, blueberries, yogurt and soy milk), 1/2 turkey sandwich with whole grain bread, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and mustard.

Midday break: Sparkling water with squeeze of lime.

Snack: Kashi cereal bar (before yoga)

Snack #2: 1.5 orange (after yoga)

Pre-dinner beverage: Decaf green tea with touch of honey (I really wanted a beer).

Dinner: Fajitas with baked chicken, peppers, onions, black beans and whole wheat tortillas.

Tomorrow I plan to swim and need to ride my bike. Only my bike is in the shop getting tuned. I may be stuck with the stationary bike. :o)


No exercise. Worked Sat and Sun. Got lost in plumbing and other household adventures on Monday. Nonetheless continued healthy diet - no sugar, minimal processed foods.

Friday May 9th

My friend was supposed to visit but had a last minute change of plans. Spent the day spreading mulch then finally ran this evening. I did not want to go but I forced myself. I managed five miles of running and walking at about 14 minutes per mile. Not spectacular but much better than nothing.

I'll be working 12+ hours over the weekend and doubt I'll fit in much exercise. Will start up again on Monday.

Thursday May 8th

Unintentional day of rest - cleaned daughter's room instead of going to yoga then went to daughter's play.

Wednesday May 7th

Took the baby in the Burley cart and rode to see Papa at work. Then did a quick 2 mile loop around the official running path and hit the coffee shop. Finally rode the mile home up hill. Probably 5 miles total (note to self - a bike computer would be nice).

Swam 50 laps while middle daughter was at ballet. As compared to Monday I had to share my lane (poor, poor me). But I am competitive and didn't want to get lapped so I swam harder. Plus I was under time constraints as I had to pick up my daughter and catch the tail end of my son's lacrosse game.

Tuesday May 6th

Short run while the baby was in ballet - probably went 1.5 to 2 miles on the "official" trail of the triathlon.

Anusara Yoga class - did many many many plank to chaturanga and chaturanga to up dog. Also learned how to touch head to ground during downward facing dog.
