Did you miss the recap of Sundayâ€™s triathlon? If so, you should definitely check it out HERE â€“ itâ€™s a good read! 🙂
Last night, I made this video recap, which includes footage of my Husband being awesome and my epic bike crash. As you can see, I crashed because I turned too quickly and too tightly.
My injuries from the crash are minor (because I had on a helmet â€“ always wear your helmet, even for short, slow rides!). MY left elbow is bruised and scraped, and my neck is really sore, but thatâ€™s it. Three cheers for helmets!
Many of you have asked what my race plans are now that Iâ€™ve done the triathlon. Oh, you know me so well! :) I already am signed up for a few other races in the next few weeks:
- April 3 â€“ Croomâ€™s Fools Run 15 mile trail race. I did this last year, and Iâ€™m so excited to do it again. Itâ€™s a lot of fun.
- April 10 – Aflac Iron Girl 15K. I am super excited for this oceanside road race. Iron Girl has a ton of other races in the country â€“ check out their website to see if there is one near you and use the coupon code CCIGCLHTP2 (case sensitive) for $10 off online event entry until April 7.
- May 23 â€“ Echelon Gran Fondo Century Bike Race â€“ Thatâ€™s 100 miles through the gorgeous Napa Valley, California!
Iâ€™ll do another triathlon, but Iâ€™d prefer a sprint distance swim (half of what I did yesterday) and warmer weather. :)
On to breakfast:
I had pumpkin oatmeal, which contained:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup rice milk
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
- Toppings: flax, brown sugar, and almonds
What races or fitness goals are you working towards right now?
PS â€“ My favorite part of the video is when you see the Husband and I running side-by-side along the beach! :) And THANK YOU for all your sweet and supportive comments.
