Try A Tri?!?

Hello friends! How’s this fine Tuesday treating you?! It’s all good here!!

I had a good 3 mile run this morning. It wasn’t great, but it was better than my runs have been, although a lot slower than I was running a few weeks ago. I’m still not sure what was causing me to feel so fatigued and out of breath a few weeks ago, but needless to say I definitely lost some of my running fitness so I feel like I’m starting over. That’s not fun :( Amazing how fast I lose my conditioning, but it’s always kinda been like that for me. I slack of for about 2-3 weeks and it’s much harder to run. I know it could be worse though! So, I am really gonna be consistent from now on and luckily, school is starting to slow down a bit! Almost summer break!! I also have my eye on a tri!! My friend Katie really wants me to do it with her and I think it sounds like a lot of fun! It’s called the Annie Oakley Sprint Triathlon. It’s a sprint, women’s only tri: 400 meter swim, 11 mile bike, 2 mile run. Short and sweet and I think it sounds great for a first tri. What do y’all think??


I made a really yummy dinner tonight that I wanted to share!! First up, the best salad EVER!!


In the mix:

  • Romaine
  • Cucs
  • Tomatoes
  • Olives
  • Onion
  • Jalapenos
  • Feta
  • A little Ranch
  • A lotta Texas Pete’s hot sauce

Yum, yum, yum! The Ranch-Texas Pete’s Hot Sauce combo really kicked this salad up a notch! It was fab!


I also picked up some awesome looking tortellini!


It was Chicken and Prosciutto Tortellini! They were sooooo yummy! Topped with my favorite Bertolli Marinara sauce.


All together now!!


Sadie says “Mama, whatcha cooking?”


Well friends, gotta get so I can watch Glee! I also have some ice cream calling my name! I bought some “Groom’s Cake” ice cream today at the store for Al but I’m breaking into it! I saved up my calories today so I can enjoy a nice BIG bowl! Yum!

Do you prefer running, biking, swimming, or all 3?? Swimming makes me so nervous but I better get used to it if I want to try a tri! Ha :)
