I suck, I know

So I suck at blogging. I don't know why I can't seem to keep up on it. Training is going great. I have been doing a lot of different things, and it seems to be working. I have dropped a few LBs. I have met so many amazing girls who I am now working out with. I added weights to my routine, my body hurts because it has been a while. I also have another great friend who I have been walking the hills of Mt. Shasta with. What a great workout. One of these days I will post pictures of these hills and my AWESOME calves. I am going to attempt to run with a few girls tomorrow. I will let you know how that works out (I am still in major slow mode :( ). Hopefully I will not wait so long to post again................

the last few days

Monday- I did two spin rides of an hour each.

Tuesday- 4 mile run

Wednesday- 45 minutes on the trainer. I can't increase and decrease the resistance like on the spin bike but it is a hard workout. It is also nice to be on my bike. This is where I will probably start getting tons of time in the saddle.

Like I said on Monday I am taking it pretty easy this week. More things with the kids like the park and the lake and less time to myself. This is a good break because I plan on intense training the next two weeks.

20 Mile Ride

I am once again a few days behind. Who knew it would be so hard to get even a little post in! Saturday morning I went out on my bike for the second time and rode 20 miles. It was awesome, though there was one little crash. I have a few bruises on my legs but nothing major. I felt really good after, now I am think that I might try for 30 this coming weekend if I can fit it in with the kid's soccer tournaments. I didn't get a run in yesterday. We spent the day reorganizing the house. We have way too much stuff and decided most of it isn't worth keeping around. This is the last week before school starts so I am going to take it easy and do things with the kids. It is on next week! I will have plenty of time to get it all done while the kids are at school.

Thurs & Friday

Well yesterday ended up being a rest day though that wasn't my plan. I know I need one each week, this just means I have to push it Saturday and Sunday. Today I ran 3 miles plus a warm-up/cool-down of a half mile. I ran a little slower than I wanted to. That just means I need to hit the pavement a few times a week. HR range was 75-85 percent. After my run I did an hour on the spin bike. Class was crazy hard today and I am spent. I thought I might do a little more tonight, but I don't think it is going to happen. HR range was 75-95 percent.

Just an update on the last two days-

One hour Boot Camp
1 mile bike/ 1.5 run with the kids

One hour spin class a.m. (HR 65-90)
One hour evening spin on my own
One hour spin class p.m. (HR 65-75)
3 hours on the bike today, I am a happy but tired girl. I am hoping to get a decent run in tomorrow.

Exercise A.D.D and a Century Ride

If you read my blog, you have probably figured out that I have exercise A.D.D. I am always all over the place. With that said I have a PLAN! I am participating in a century bike ride in Davis on October 15th. It’s not a race, but it is 100 miles. The problem is I am not really in shape beings it will take 7-10 hours to complete, and I haven’t been on a road bike in four years. Today starts my “official” training but I did get on the road yesterday and it wasn’t pretty. Think going down a VERY steep hill, panic attack kind of not pretty. Luckily I have almost 9 weeks to get ready. I am going to keep an update of my training, you know for a little accountability. I might even keep a little food journaling going too because ideally I would like to be 10 pounds liter. Umm well see, because I prefer to live in denial when it comes to what I eat. And I do love Insanity and will keep it in my training, just not every day.  My plan is to cross train but get some SERIOUS time in the saddle (spin, mountain, and road bikes).
So day 1:
Hour spin class morning (HR range 75-95)
Hour spin class evening (HR range 65-85)
Hour trail/mountain ride with the family (forgot monitor)

Wish me luck!

One week of Insanity down

Getting ready to start week two of Insanity this morning. last week went great. Yesterday I was Finally able to do the whole warm-up with a break. I know "warm-up" but it is really hard. I also made it to spin twice. I plan is to make it 3 to 4 times, well see. Getting ready to do day 8 workout now and then spin at 845. Wish me luck.....
