Diary of a Wimpy Trainer!

This week's training schedule for me, Adorable Wife, may look a little wimpy compared to last weeks (which I wasn't able to fully complete) because I am still nursing my dang hip/butt/sciatic/whatever the other body parts are called but I am too lazy to look them up. That means no plyos or fartleks this week according to Coach.

Monday- (10 min) Yoga and Abs, 3+ Miles (Checkeroo)
Tuesday-  Yoga and Total Body, Lunges, Bike
Wednesday- Yoga and Abs, 3+ Miles
Thursday- Yoga and Total Body, Lunges, Bike
Friday- Yoga and Abs, Bike and Mile run (may be a brick)
Saturday- Lunges, Brick (Bike at least 12 miles, Run at least 2 miles)

Monday's run was with Erica, who I again dragged out, but maybe I shouldn't of this time as her tummy was hurting. I just was A. scared to run in the dark by myself (boogey men are everywhere) B. wanted to keep my pace slow and walk some so I knew she would help me with that, and C. did I mention the mean streets of Chehalis? Well actually we did end up running into a cop bust on an apartment and had to run around 4 policeman sneaking up on the place COPS style. We ran a little wide and way faster to make sure we didn't fall victim to any stray gun fire! She did really well considering her tummy. We made it about 2 miles before walking, but then we both froze up and couldn't run again. I am really hoping I am good to go for the tri in LESS than two weeks, I hate feeling like this...

I really love Teen Girl Squad!
I spent most of highschool injured and my body just tends to be weak. I need to really focus on getting all my joints stronger and having better overall health. Any suggestions? Unless its drinking alien urine I am pretty open! Any way...Peyton finally caught the sick bug from his cousins and has been pulling an Exorcist all over the house and Coach is taking a sick day too (guess that means I have two babies to take care of :D)

Don't forget today is the LAST day to enter the giveaway here and then we will be announcing the WINNER tomorrow!

Whoa cops, is Chehalis sketch?! don't get down on yourself - you'll have so much adrenaline going during the tri that you'll be able to power through.

OH man do I love Teen Girl Squad!


You do whatever your body can handle and as Megan said, excitement and adrenaline are your best friends come race day!

How exciting to run by a stake out! I would have been scared though and ran by super fast!

Sending wishes your way for a healthy house. When hubs and kids are sick, we cope and look after them. When moms are sick, we keep on going; make sure you take time to look after yourself.
