20 Weeks

Our Holiday-Run-Repeat last Thursday was absoluetly amazing. Hubby and I managed to stick together and just let the 8.5 miles speed past us while taking in all of the holiday lights around us.  Head lamps, cold air, and lots of talking (on my part..lol).  A new holiday favorite for me!!

This week begins our journey in 20 weeks of training for our first race of next year.  We are both particiapting in the White Lake Half Iron on May 7th along with a large group of our friends.  Crazy, fun times!  I am thrilled to once again have a structured program in front of me.  This is just how I like to roll. 

Good bye to the large volumes of beer, wine, and yummy sugary foods.  Now going back to a more limited consumption once again.  This comes just in time!  My scale was really starting to piss me off... ;)

Happy Holidays!

I think I need to get myseld into formal training mode STAT. The scale is not my friend. Why does sugar have to taste so good??

OMG. I'm just waiting to get my first 'structured' week from my coach. It makes is so much simpler to train! And BDD is right - the 20 weeks will just fly by!!

As a general rule, stay off the scale until you're in the thick of training. Otherwise it's just an annoying little square.

There's something about a structured training plan that just makes me all warm and fuzzy! One more week of gluttony for me! Can't wait to get back at it!

Wooo hoo! Question...how do you train in the winter months for a race so early in the season? Lots of trainer rides???

Wow that's cool you are going to do White Lake! I've done that one a few times before and heads up it always manages to be the first real hot race of the season. Course is 100% flat though so that's nice! Enjoy the training :)
