So now that my race season is officially over I get to relax (well a little)! I am pretty much training when I want and doing what I want. I took a nice little break after the Chicago Marathon of doing absolulely nothing besides eating, eating, and more eating. If I wanted something I ate it. I needed that break from the diet I had been on since pretty much January. But now I am back to training. I don’t have a structured training plan, I pretty much wake up and decide if I want to swim, bike, run, or lift weights. I have come to the realization that I cannot not train. I get way too wound up and antsy if I am sitting around too much. This can be good or bad. But I am working on it.
I have done one cyclocross race which was a blast and I plan on doing some more. I have also signed up for a few 5K running races which hurt so much but are also fun because they’re over in like 18 minutes. But it’s 18 minutes of pure hell.
On another note, I am trying out a gluten free diet. I am 2 days in and so far so good. I have not found a GF bread yet and the toughest part of this diet will be finding good tasting sweets! I am doing it just to kind of see if I can and to test my self control. Let’s see how long it lasts.
Well that’s about all that is new with me, oh and I got a MacBook yesterday! I needed a new computer but I decided to splurge and treat myself to a new toy. And my bike training tool is TrainerRoad which is an amazing program! Welp, until next time, have a good one and thanks for reading!
