Day One of the NASM Certification Program!!!

My NASM book arrived today!!!

image

I’m pretty excited about this journey. I plan to complete the NASM Certified Personal Trainer program as well as the Ironman University Certifed Coaching program, then develop an online training program to do Personal Training & Triathlon Coaching. Starting with a few people looking to complete their first triathlon, run their first 5k/10k/Half or Full Marathon. I’ll be developing the training program alongside the certifications, so I’m not entirely sure what it will look like. But I am excited!

And selfishly, I’m very excited to see how these certifications and new information effect my own training!!

Monday Motivation

I did get my bike ride in this evening! It was a little cooler this evening, which was excellent!

image

And today, I really focused on my eating and prepped lunches for the week. Winning!

Sunday Prep

Pretty good week this week, hit three swims, three runs, but only two of the three bike rides. Friday’s seem to be a tougher day for me to get out, I think with the daunting mileage of the weekend I feel more lackadaisical about my Friday ride. Hoping a little tweak to my training schedule helps get that third ride in…

I’ve been super sore this weekend. I’ve decided I absolutely must do my foam rolling at night. For some reason, this is the one thing I cannot ever manage to make time for. But it feels like only because it’s just to simple a task with what seems like no benefit… So adios for tonight, I have a date with my foam roller.

What do ya know Wednesday?

I received an email today for another ambassadorship! It’s for a really cool company focused on hydration! I am excited to move towards making them my primary hydration and share it with you! The company is SOS Rehydrate.

Got my ride in tonight, since I was a lazy, lazy bones this morning. Quite a head wind headed out! But cooler than it has been after work and I needed it to clear my mind and center myself.

Sunday Prep!!

image

Turned out to be a pretty great week. Didn’t get my long run in today. Slept over 10 hours last night, must have needed it.

image

Going to be a great week this week!!

image

8 weeks out from the Black Diamond 70.3!!

Accountability Check-in!

image

So, I’m feeling pretty good about these numbers considering my longest ride, run and open water swim are still pending the weekend!

image image

Sad to eat my last delicious sushi roll for the week yesterday to return to reality this morning.

image

But the Blue Angels showed up and did a crazy air show before I left. πŸ™‚ nice!

image

And my girlies are home! Going to be a fun weekend!

What Do Ya Know Wednesday (a few hours late…)

I fell asleep last night without finishing this up!

I read this great article yesterday on the Ironman site, check it out:

Great tips for triathletes but also just good general health. Good stuff.

So yesterday after a yummy breakfast of oatmeal and turkey sausage.

image

I drove out to Sauvie Island for my bike ride,

image

And although the scenery, at least initially was quite beautiful.

image

image

It turned out to be one of the scariest rides I’ve ever been on. Was thankful to return to my car.

image

After my ride, had a delicious Turkey Sammie and not-so-delicious chicken noodle soup.

image

And at the end of the day, a dinner with Bills work folks, where I had a super yummy spicy mac n cheese. Yum.

Tidbit Tuesday

Excellent workout today! 3 mile run followed by 1800 yd swim followed by another 2 mileΒ run. Felt great! At the Hillsboro LA Fitness. What a clean facility!

image

image

image

Followed by a delicious shake

image

And a hot bath with said shake.

image

Followed by some delicious Pad Thai

image

And finishing my book, which was a great book.

image

And finally tonight, dinner with Bill’s co-workers, consisting of calamari and ahi. Delicious. And plenty of good wine. πŸ‘πŸΌ
