Training Hiatus

October 3, 2011

I can’t believe it has been 1 month since my last post!  Shame on me!  I guess that’s about the same amount of time that I’ve been taking a hiatus from training.  I’m not sure what led to this, but I found my workouts slowly going from 10/week to 5 to 2 to nonexistent. Maybe I needed a break?  Not sure, but I went from feeling happy to “sleep in” until 6:30am to having major anxiety about not working out at 5am or making my late night swims.  I think not having another race to train for after my Olympic triathlon was the first culprit. My rest days turned into lazy days. My cheat meals turned into poor eating.  I’m definitely not perfect!  No more excuses, though.  My 1/2 and full Ironman races are going to be here before I know it, and I’m ready to get back at it!  Nicole and I have a running date tomorrow after work, and Insanity is calling my name in the morning.

I know, I know. I still need to post my results from the first time I did Insanity, and I will!  That Beachbody program is amazing!  Dare I say I enjoyed it more than P90X??  Tough call.  Review to come soon, but let’s just say I’m looking forward to doing it again, and Beachbody has my before & afters in case they want to contact me. 😉

I heart Insanity

What I’ve been doing since my last post on 9/2…

9/11: Completed my first Olympic distance triathlon! There is a lot of room for improvement. More training needed!
9/12: Submitted my P90X Beachbody Infomercial video to the producers. I wonder if they’ll use my footage!?
9/16: First hair appointment since I started doing triathlons. My stylist was appalled! My hair needed some major TLC.
9/17: Submitted my Insanity before/after pics for a free t-shirt!
9/18: Girls brunch & birthday dinner with the fam.
9/19:  3 day business trip to TN. Shrimp & grits aren’t found on the Insanity meal plan.
9/24 AM: Moved into our new place in Encinitas Moonlight Beach & celebrated my bday again with my hizzy!  Jeremy & I are new neighbors to our triathlon training buddies, Nicole (Fitness Fatale) and Mike. This is going to make all the difference in Ironman training because we’ll be going through it together.
10/3: Preordered P90X2! Definitely incorporating it into my triathlon training.

The best part about our new place (besides living next to our friends/training buddies)?  We have a room entirely dedicated to FITNESS!!  Once the boxes are unpacked, this is where all the Insanity, P90X, and spinning will take place!  I sure hope those that move in below us are early risers.

Surprise waiting for me in our new place!

  1. One month of rest means that you are more than READY to dominate Insanity and train for the marathon/half ironman/ironman! Although I did do some working out, I took about 3 weeks “easy” myself and i think it made a difference! I am not mentally ready to work hard instead of burned out. We are going to kick butt! So glad to have you as my new neighbor – it’s going to be an awesome year of both training and fun!
