The Bike Is Here!!!!

I was at work yesterday and I got a text we have a bike! I thought what already? It got here fast. It is so lite and soooo yellow. How ironic is that. It is really yellow. I have to finish putting it together.

Let see..... I rested on Wednesday, and yesterday after work I did my workout, then the pool. I did and exercise called the Pressing the Buoy. This is where you swim just kicking and pressing down with your chest a little and you head in the water and keeping your body floating on the surface. It is hard but I did it. I did 2 laps of it. This is to help keep the body from dragging in the water. Then I tackled the free style again. I did it. I wasn't dragging,and I did the sequence right and did a lap. I had to rest at each in of the pool, my breathing is off but I did it. So I did one more lap free style and 6 more of whatever to get in 9 laps before the gym closed.

Today I have already done the spin class, and I have to go back and swim. That's it for today till my long run tomorrow. There is no need to taper off when this is my routine. I do not want to get out of my routine. Then I will get lazy like I did in Jan. I can not do that. Specially if I plan on doing the Goofy. And the triathlon. E said I should Just do the Full then the Goofy. And maybe by then they will have come up with the dopey. I do not know if I ever will be able to run a full half, but I am working like you know what to get to that point. I have to baby my knees and keep the bones happy, or my Sports medicine Doctor will shut me down. { i wouldn't know what to do with myself if that happened} Maybe I should listen to E. :)

I have been keeping my calories in the 1400-1700 range.

SO after the Princess, I will be alternating my long runs with a long bike ride.
Track my runner Rachel Milano that's me! I haven't received my final race instructions. :(

Good luck to everyone for the Vern Week Run!!

Hey Jeff, gonna make a triathlon medal too?? I will need a Princess half medal soon!!!! :)

Hey Rae! Thanks for adding me to your friends on Facebook and also thanks for the advice about writing how I am feeling when I'm eating. I am definitely an emotional eater and I need to pay attention to that.

I am so impressed that you're sticking with the spin classes. I tried one about a month ago and I am just not strong enough yet. I'll get there though.

Have a great weekend!

I can't stand through the entire class I have to sit down my arms get all shaky and I am not able to do all the other moves either but its fun I will some day though. :0)

Congrats on the new bike, I'm excited for you! Perhaps I'll add a bike route to my Vern Weekend on Sunday for good measure. The ol' mountain bike should still give me a good workout....Going out this afternoon for my Vern-run as I've got the kids solo tomorrow and won't be able to make it out.

Best of luck on the Princess, will try to track you're progress :-)

Oh, and yeah, you should do the full next year and the Goofey with Mike-Speed and I the following year! He's going to do it if I have to drag him, ha!

Sounds like you are doing just great. Congrats on the new bike. Remember when you get those aerobars to be careful it can be very tricky until you get the hang of it :)!

Looking forward to hearing how you do with your Vern Challenge!
