I survived! Talk about a good start to the morning! I’m on day 2 of keto and workouts are still going great! 

My time: 40:02
I DID IT! 3.5 hours and 50 miles later Collin and I are finishers! :D It was definitely an experience. Considering I’d only ever ridden 23 miles prior to this, exhausted isn’t even a good enough word to explain how I feel right now. I feel like jello. A giant person shaped blob of jello. But boy is it AMAZING!
Miles 1-35 went fast, road vibrations were horrible but I kept a 16-17 mph pace and it wasn’t really hot at all. Miles 35-50 though were torture! Especially the last 20 mile stretch, it was straight, slightly uphill and into a headwind. My pace seriously dropped to 10-11 mph and I could not get enough water. At one point Collin even rode up behind me and pushed me along with his hand which is saying something considering this was his third ride in months haha. There was also a brief spattering of him trying to teach me to draft, but I’m kind hopeless at that right now. :(
I think my main problems were that my feet kept going numb and my arms were killing me, other than that it was just fatigue near the end. I’m already planning my next one! Here’s to hoping I can talk my favorite curly haired cyclist into joining me this time too! :)
Training takeaway: Log more time in the saddle
And if you don’t already have plans to do HHH next year, you should make some. ;)

Riding 50 miles tomorrow in Hotter N’ Hell

So my hometown conveniently hosts the US’s biggest one day bike ride (idk how to verify the validity of this but yeah), and since I’m riding these day it’s on! Woot! This should be an experience! It’ll be my first time pulling 50 on my bike so idk what’ll happen. I’m pretty confident I can do it though.
I just really hope it’s not too windy tomorrow like it has been the last week because that’ll really be the “hell” haha

Free home workout plan.

true-romance-is-dead asked: hello :) I saw you are doing T25 and I think that's awesome! do you know where I can get it? :) also, your experience with it so far! thank youuuuu :)

I’m answering this publicly because I figured some of you might want to know too! 

Hi! :) Yep! I’m doing T25, at least I’m supposed to be. I only made it through the first two days before I caught a bad cold, so I’m currently not working out but will start again as soon as I can breath. :P You can buy it from beachbody, but I downloaded it for free from here which you’ll need a bittorrent program to do (I use Vuze on my mac).

I really like what I’ve done so far as you can make the workout harder/easier by the amount of effort you put into it. I haven’t done enough to tell if it’s effective for me, but any type of HIIT workout is generally a good one. I’m currently on vacation so I don’t have access to my heart rate monitor but when I get home Tuesday I plan on doing the workout with all that to better assess calorie burn and whatnot.

My plan is to do it in conjunction to my Crossfit, running, and yoga schedule since for me it isn’t as hard as my other workouts, but I think it’d be a good workout for people looking to get started working out or those seeking a quick and efficient workout. My opinion right now is that if you’re already pretty fit and looking for a challenge Insanity is better (albeit  A LOT more repetitive than T25), but that could very well change after I’ve done more of the program. :)

I’ll be posting updates and more thoughts on it as I progress through program, but if you have any more questions of anything just ask!
