Pounds Down This Week:
Lots of rest this week. I thought I had food poisoning or something on Thursday night, but I went to bed early after chugging a water bottle of Cytomax, and I was good by the morning. Cytomax is made of magic. Spin class on Friday was seventh-circle-of-hell brutal, and I followed it up by a run on the treadmill afterwards. Misery. I decided to rest on Saturday because of it.
Also, had a girls’ night out on Friday, but managed not to derail my entire week with food and wine; I was reasonable, and that’s the first time that has happened in a while.
The awesome news: I unexpectably became a coachable athlete this week. We are working on the details, but I think I will have an actual training schedule which starts next week, and feedback from a living, breathing coach (not only that, but an Ironman athlete- so proof is in the pudding). How exciting. And how freaking terrifying. My fear of disappointing people shall be greatly magnified when a coach is involved – perfect!
This Coming Week:
Put a five mile run on the books (somewhere) and manage my diet hardcore. The Expert goes back to Australia on Friday, so I need to consider my workouts very carefully and plan well for the coming week. However, if the coach relationship is established – there will be no thinking for me to do. Only a hell of alot of work. Only 13 weeks to St. Anthony’s. There is much work to be done.
