The last two weeks have been anything but ordinary.
Two weeks ago, I was busy packing for vacation and driving halfway across the United States (Texas to South Carolina). Needless to say, all of this craziness made keeping my healthy eating in check super difficult. However, I kept my training on track. I missed out on running was Wednesday, which is the day we traveled halfway across the United States. (Yes, we did it all in one day. A day that started at 2 am.) The other day I missed out on was Friday, which was the day we actually traveled to the beach. (About 4 hours in the car.)
While at the beach, I really upped my mileage since I would not be riding my bike any and I knew that my food choices would not be the best. I ran every day except, Monday (tropical depression Debby was supposed to be there), Friday and Saturday, which were travel days. On Thursday, I actually ran 7 miles. I would have run 8, but I knew that there were three little boys who were waiting on me to go to the beach. I really enjoyed running in the cooler temperatures.
Today, I went for a swim, bike and a run. basically I did the entire triathlon that I will be doing on August 11 this morning. Now I know I can do it, I just need to work on doing it faster. Which if you know me, fast is not exactly what I do best.
Overall, I count my vacation as a success. I was able to maintain my weight loss the entire time I was gone, despite some less than stellar eating and a lot of sitting a few days.
Now it is time to focus on getting ready for my first triathlon and getting serious about lifting weights.
