REI= Awesome!

Yikes, what a weekend!

Friday night we spent a very long time waiting for a table at Cheesecake Factory. Good news, I discovered an REI! What an awesome store, I had to hold back from buying more than this...


My favorite sports bra, moving comfort Fiona (was 50% off)
A Swim cap
Nuun tablets (have yet to try these)
Stinger organic honey waffles and pomegranate passion chews (I've been dying to try these for a while!)

A big MISS on any workouts this weekend and even today. Ive been a lazy bum. I attempted to make my next training schedule by googling sprint tri training programs, but I feel like I'm beyond them. I need more run miles on the weekend to keep my mileage base up for races along the way like the Cherry Blossom 10 miler in April. I decided I will just have to make my own training schedule, which makes me nervous, but it seems to be all I can do.

So far, I did my schedule for the week:
Monday: supposed to swim, but rest instead
Tuesday: Speedwork Run  & Abs
Wednesday: 20 min Swim & strength
Thursday: Bike-Run Brick 60 min & Abs
Friday: 20 min Swim & strength
Saturday: Bike Trainer 45 min
Sunday: 8 mile run

I spent a long time getting supplies tonight for our Tutu making this weekend. We missed our long run & tutu making this past weekend after a long saturday night at the Casino ($40 lost booo), and tons of rain. I am mad at myself for continuously getting off track with my food, I haven't stepped on a scale since Disney, a little nervous to. I really need to step it up. Any tips?

I love REI! It's so hard to go there without buying anything.

Got my Zensah sleeves Saturday(finally picked them up in WA)! They are perfect - I wore them for a 29km run and my legs felt great. :)

REI is my favorite store! Discovered it when I started climbing and it's become an addiction!!

My running partner "C" introduced me to REI online about a year ago - I've never been to a store so I can't imagine the awesomeness!!!!

You'll make an amazing training schedule - you're a smartie and super talented!!!! I have faith in your abilities! Good luck!

Tomorrow is a new day. I have never heard of REI. I will have to check it out. Your training is going to real good this week. Stay positive. Go Get'm Girl.

Let me know how the NUUN is. I've been wanting to try some but just haven't done it yet!

Terri said...

We don't have REI here, but have had them in the past and I loved them! I always struggle with February, too, but March is a new month and spring is coming!! That makes everybody feel better!

i love REI! Please tell me you became a "member" ... you will get money back at the end of the year and it actually adds up if you really become addicted to that place.

I get into trouble in REI, not to mention it takes me forever to get through the store!
I love Nuun. You should try the orange ginger flavor next. :) The tri-berry is ok, though too.
I did a post about healthy eating a while back that is super basic and easy to follow. Maybe it'll help?

I bet you can make your own training schedule! You know what needs to be done! Just make up your mind to do it. You can!

Head back to REI and get more stinger. That stuff is unreally awesomely fantasitcally good.

I LOVE REI, but it is a very dangerous store!!!

Have you thought about looking at Olympic tri plans? That way, you'll still get a swim/bike/run plan, but the run mileage would be more? Just a thought! :)

I say just get on the scale, get it over with, and move on. Sometimes seeing the number really helps motivate me.

Karen said...

I'm so glad I don't have an REI close to me! LOL I'd get in TROUBLE in that store!! :0)

lilmeg said...

What's REI? It sounds like it would be safer if I didn't know, but I'm going to Google anyway. LOL

I track calories at myfitnesspal and post weekly weigh ins with supportive friends. Without that accountability I'd be off track all of the time instead of just most of the time.

Honey stinger waffles are my FAV!!!

I'm running the Cherry Blossom as well!! Good luck! I'm hoping to break 1:45 but not sure if it'll happen!
