I had a Greek salad today!  Reminded me of my trip to GREECE LOL.  Nice treat. 

Diet is paying off!  I'm losing weight.  Got to look good for my return to the good old USA...

 I'm getting good at this!  :)  I ordered a book on this photoshop program in hopes that I can continue to learn new things about it.

BRICK straight to this run. Perfect day for this.

 

Today's workout ended up being like a reverse Tri.  I didn't think the swim was going to happen so I did the bike and then planned to run directly afterwards.  When I got done with the run I just decided I wanted to swim.  :)  2:00 workout STRAIGHT.  I'm feeling good. 

I'm really working hard on my diet also.  Today I had a salad for lunch and have been snacking on fruit all afternoon.  Time to clean up my act!

Started out slow today... This is the first strength workout I've done in months and my chest was a little tired from my swim yesterday. All in all it was a good workout

So I had Masgouf for lunch with some friends today VERY good stuff, attached is the link.

Today is a rest day!  Those of you who know me are aware that I don't rest well... :)  I'm going to attempt to start doing at least two strength workouts each week and still maintain my tri sports.  I'll probably do something like

 

Chest and tri's one day

 

Back shoulders and bi's on the other

 

abs every chance I get ;)  need to tighten up my stomach so I look like a Greek God ripping out of my wetsuit in transition LOL   

Picture I took up on the Grand Teton... I like this picture

Stationary bike time. What a great day! I'm happy with my training.

Swim

This swim was GREAT for my confidence. I swam this 1480 straight! I didn't even plan on doing that, just started swimming and didn't want to stop.

ADVICE NEEDED:  Can I run a Half-Marathon the weekend prior to my Half-Iron or is it to close together?  I'm doing the Patriots Half-Iron, but I was looking at the Rock and Roll Half-Marathon the weekend prior in Virginia Beach...

 

It's HOT today.  I plan on making it to the pool later this afternoon. 

 This is a picture from a small OLY tri in South Dakota that I age grouped in...   I'm still enjoying this photoshop program LOL

I feel great today!  This workout was fun to do.  I'm going to run this evening with a group.  Life is good...  I'm still planning on sharing some pictures each day that I doctor in photo shop.  Ice climbing in South Dakota.

 

I'm really happy with this weeks volume... I was lucky to be able to get ALL of my workout in.  I'm pleased with the consistency in my graphs also.  I hope I see the results come race day.

 Check out my photoshop work!  Stay tuned I'll post modified pics each day.

I'll run this evening.  My weight is going down, that's good.  I would like to be under 170 by my race in Sep. 

 

Attention DC Tri people... I need a "tune up race" sometime around Aug 24th to prepare for my Sep 6th Half Iron.... Thoughts?
