Eat, Bike, Run, Eat, Swim, Eat

Happy Sunday everyone! 🙂

I love Sundays because they always include a long run and pancakes. However, they also mean that the weekend is almost over. This morning, I ran 7 miles.

Look at that first mile! I was listening to “Let it Go” (obviously) and when I heard my runkeeper say average pace: 7:56/mile, I kind of freaked out a little bit. It felt EASY. However, as you can see, my split times got slower over the course of my run. *sigh* but for the first few miles, I was totally rocking it! 😀 I can’t wait to push myself and see what I can really do!

I also made paaaancakes. 🙂

They were chocolatey and delicious. Yesterday was a rest day since I pretty much killed every body part on Friday with my brick workout in the morning and my swim workout in the evening. During my brick, I biked 12 miles and then ran 1.5 miles. I’m feeling really confident with my bike-run transition but the swim-bike transition is what is kind of freaking me out. My triathlon could be freezing, so what do I wear that will not require a lot of changing but also be warm enough to get me through the bike and run? I’m looking into investing in a tri suit but the ones that I can afford are the sleeveless ones with shorts. This would be a much simpler affair if I lived in Florida still. Michigan is always unpredictable especially in April. When I ran my first marathon two years ago, it was in the 60s the day before the race and below freezing the day of. Ridiculous! I’m just more concerned about the swim. Any suggestions? I’ve obviously just been swimming in my athletic swimsuit which has been working well for me. However, speaking of swimming, I am quickly finding out just how weak of a swimmer I am. I am having a really hard time getting through 50 yds without taking a short breather and then going back at it. *sigh* I’ll get there.

Besides my triathlon, I have a few other races I am doing this year.

The Dirty Girl Mud Run! 🙂 I somehow scored a free entry via their Facebook page and am going to the run in Chicago! If any of you are going to be there, send me an email and we’ll meet up! 🙂

Also, wait for it..wait for it….

THE AVENGERS SUPER HEROES HALF-MARATHON! 😀 Any guesses on who i’ll be dressing up as? 😉

So, that’s been my weekend in a nutshell. How was yours? Did you do anything exciting? Did you hit any training goals? 🙂
