I moved my (rather large) desktop computer upstairs to the TV room so I can lay on the couch and work. Soooo comfy. Wanna come hang out and work with me?
James, get out of my seat!
Iâ€™m still going strong on that salad-a-day thing. I really love this â€˜goalâ€™ because itâ€™s such a simple. achievable way to ensure that I eat enough vegetables.
Also â€“ potato chips and hummus is my new obsession. Henry is equally obsessed.
In the mix: greens, lentils, sunflower seeds, cucumbers, carrots.
I did this wonderful swim workout this morning:
And then my goggles sunk to the bottom.
I mentioned this on Instagam (letâ€™s be friiiiends —> @caitlinhtp), but I LOVE my Half Ironman gear bag. It was so totally worth the outrageous $65 price tag. Itâ€™s such a great keepsake, and it has so many pockets!
Speaking of triathlons, I was browsing races this morning and found an INDOOR TRIATHLON that takes place just a few miles from my house. I was so excited. I could really use a triathlon in my life right now. Iâ€™ve been searching for an indoor tri but thought they were all over until early spring. Iâ€™ve done a pool triathlon before, but never a triathlon that takes place entirely indoors (the swim is in the pool, the bike is on spin machines, and the run is on treadmills).
Here are my options:
Advanced: 600 yard swim, 10 mile bike, 3 mile run
Beginner: 300 yard swim, 5 mile bike, 1 mile run
Iâ€™m definitely signing up for the triathlon, but I canâ€™t decide what category to enter. Clearly, Iâ€™m not a â€˜beginnerâ€™ (and I think thatâ€™s more of a description of the race length v. an actual this-is-for-novices-only designation) but the advanced race seems a bit long to do indoors. I can barely squeak of 3.0 miles on a treadmill in normal conditions before I want to gouge my eyes out with my iPhone. Also, if I did the shorter one, I could maybe do really wellâ€¦ I bet I could squeak out some fast times for those shorter distances. Plus, both categories cost the same amount. That being said, the advanced race would be a better workoutâ€¦ Hmmmmm.
Itâ€™s only been two months since I did the Half Ironman, but I feel like Iâ€™ve lost so much of my triathlon fitness! Iâ€™ve only got three weeks to â€˜trainâ€™ for this event, so expect a massive step-up in swimming and biking.
Speaking of my raceâ€¦
I also updated the Pregnancy and Birth page.
Side note: I miss the baby bump but I like Henry being outside my body more. Also, I still really miss my long hair. Grow hair, grow.
So â€“ what do you think? Should I sign up for the longer race or the shorter one? Iâ€™ve got to mail in my entry form today to be sure I make the cut-off!
