Week in Review 7/4/11-7/10/11

Nothing too exciting this week happened. Although it was my last full week of training before Musselman 70.3!! And of course my last week of full time training as I am headed back to work today. The last 3 months have been great! Train, eat, sleep, play with the little one. It was the best 3 months of my life and I will cherish the time well spent!

I knew this week was my last big week before Musselman so I wanted to make it count. Everything had a purpose. I wold stick to my zones, eat nutritiously and recover properly. I did just that!!

On the nutrition side of it, I have been basically doing the core diet with one cheat day a week. That means I can have a meal outside my window if I chose to do so!! My treat to myself! I have been logging my weight since the beginning of May. Since today was weigh day I thought I would let you guys know how I've done in the last 2 months. I've lost 15 pounds!!

Yes the core diet works! Im proof! I have about 5 left to go to be at my ideal racing weight but I've come along way! Now its keeping track of the calories and nutritious eating while Im at work! I can do this!

Well, this week is Taper week and I am enjoying my day off, of course until I have to work!

Here are the numbers:

Swim -4752 yds; 1.67 hours
Bike- 189.41 miles; 10.49 hours
Run- 25.75 miles; 4.35 hours

TOTAL time: 16: 30:14

Im totally ready for Musselman!! BRING IT ON!!! :)

Happy Training!
