TGIF

Thank god its Friday!! Its been a whirl wind of a week. Wednesday I was feeling under the weather so yesterday I did what I needed to do to feel better. I took a day off!! WHAT?!! GASP!! I know! I feel the same way! But in order for me to recover from this icky virus, I had to let my body rest.

One thing you should know is I have been back and forth at the doctors with low white Blood Cells, you  know, the one that fight bacteria/infection, so any person that sneezes on me Im bound to get something. This started about 3-4 years ago and it is a cyclic thing. Ill go back, get my blood drawn and be fine. It is a concern because I don't know why my body is doing this? Could it be my training and my nutrition habits?? I do think that is playing a role.

I have started better eating habits a few weeks ago. I have been working on 4 fruits, 4 veges per day alon with my 3 dairy and 2 meats. I hate meat, Bleck!! Ok, I hate red meat, Only Chicken and pork and fish for me please. I think this has helped me recover quicker because frankly I would've been out for a week normally with a cold but glad it only affected a few of my workouts.

Tonight I had some fun in celebration of a new decade of my life coming. I went out with some work friends to dinner and to See Burlesque with Christina Aguilera. That was a great movie. I think I could Burlesque...hmmmm...maybe not as well as she could. Ha ha!! It was just nice to relax and take it easy for a little bit.

Tomorrow I will be signing up for one of my friends cycling classes because frankly he kicks my *ss in cycling and his spinning classes are worth paying for. Its an 8 week program and will help me get my time on the bike in. Also he does some brick work after which is awesome!!

Also on tap tomorrow night at 4:4pm is a 5k Race, Its a Wonderful 5k. Its awesome. The christmas lights come on as you run!! Ill definately bring my camera! Im hoping to PR if Im feeling up to it..so cross your fingers!!

Happy Training!!

  4. Have fun! I started taking Spin classes when I did my first triathlon...I hated it. And now I actually teach a spin class every week! You will love it, just remember to give it a couple classes before you make up your mind!
