Last week was a toss-up, half good and half bad.
Starting with working out. I only worked out twice. And only one of those was good workout, that counts towards training for the triathlon.
It all started last Saturday, after my big 7 mile bike ride and 2 mile run, I started to have really bad cramps, like that time of month cramps. A short while later that time of month arrived, the only problem is…I already had that time of month this month. These two “times” were only 7 days apart. I started to panic and worry, I was scared. When you are thinking about having a baby sooner than later, the last thing you want is for something to malfunction down there. Well my mom suggested maybe I worked too hard in my workout…doubtful. But that tiny little question got deep in my head and convinced me that maybe it was true and I should take it easy until I could see the doctor. Apparently taking it easy means do nothing in my brain….but thats exactly what I did no workouts whatsoever until after my doctor appointment on Wednesday.
The doctor assured me that I did not cause it to happen by workout hard. No need to worry. So I left, went home and laced my sneakers. My run that day was great! My run pace was around 9:20, and I went 3 miles. The fastest and farthest I have yet to run. I was proud of myself!
With Thursday jam-packed with the Kelly Clarkson concert, there was no time to squeeze in a workout.
So Friday when I was booking a hotel for our weekend getaway, I was looking for one with a fitness center because Blake was worried about my going for a run in a strange big city all alone. Luckily, we found one with a workout room and heated outdoor pool! With almost zero sleep on Friday there was no energy for a workout. But I did get a small one in on Saturday.
Now about healthy eating…
I could have done better, but I planned on eating some less healthy food while we were away. I did not drink enough water that’s for sure.
My weight is up a little bit, but I can tell I am bloated to the max right now. I’m just hoping to be at the same as last weeks weigh in, if not less.
