Getting my run on.

Spinning

Thursday night I did 30 minutes on the bike trainer.  Aren’t you proud?  I actually got off my butt that evening and got something done.

And tonight, after I’m done posting this I’m going to head back down to the basement for another 45 minutes (at least) of spinning and then at least 20 minutes on the elliptical.  Think of it as an indoor brick workout!

I’ve updated my goals on the upper right of my site.  I’ve added a new one and changed a different one.  Can you pick out the differences?  First, next year Kris and I are going to do a sprint triathlon or two, maybe an olympic distance too.  Of course that mean we need to get a gym membership or something so we can actually do some swim workouts.  But those are just our warm ups.  Two summers from now we want to tackle a half ironman triathlon!  We don’t have a location picked out yet but it will also be the summer of our ten year wedding anniversary so maybe we’ll pick a destination triathlon and make an anniversary trip out of it.  Either way, that big goal is going to take some preparation!  Now, if I can only get myself to like biking!

The other goal I changed is my weight goal.  I got down to 147 pounds last summer.  My goal weight was 145 pounds.  Then I got pregnant and now I’m back up to the low 160′s again.  I’m working my way down and I know that I want to go lower than 145 pounds.  Between my bod pod measurements and how I felt and looked at 145 pounds I think 135 should really be my goal.  I don’t think that’s too unrealistic either.  In high school and early college I was between 120 and 125 pounds and in 2001 when I was at my previously lowest weight I was down around 140 pounds.  I felt pretty good at 140 pounds too!  So, 135 pounds is my new goal.

OK – off to change into workout gear and get to spinning!

    Girl you look good now (especially for 3 months post-delivery) and you would look good at 145. I know you would only do things that are good for you, but 135 seems like it’s too thin. Yikes! Your goals are so aggressive too! That would be awesome if you could do a destination race together! Maybe some his/hers massages to follow it up. :-)

    Gorgeous goals, hon! Rock it out, take care of yourself, and embrace the blood, sweat, and tears you’ll put in for this!
