Today is my rest day and I have never been SO HAPPY to have one!

I seriously feel like I’ve been hit by bus! Guess my workouts this last week were more intense than I thought haha

Keto weight in & updates tomorrow! :)

Weekly Sunday Runday! :D

My friends and I have started a Thing! We all get together on Sunday evenings at the lake and do a workout! Collin has dubbed it Sunday Runday! Runday is kind of a misnomer since we only run a mile and do a HIIT workout, but it sounds good haha.

Today’s workout:

Run 1/2 mile
7 rounds of:

Run 1/2 mile

I’m already planning next week! :D

"But it’s so fun to get back in shape. The progress is so tangible, and week by week you can feel the improvement. Celebrate the longest run of X months, the fastest mile, the healthiest day, etc. Some days will inevitably be better or worse than others, and you have to do all the little things with even more of an emphasis. Enjoy that a slow run is still a run, and a step, no matter how small, is still moving you towards the eventual goal."

Week 2 of Keto: Weigh-in and update!

Meant to post this yesterday but I was exhausted from work so today it is!

Weigh in: -1 pound this week! For -10 pounds total!

Not nearly as much as the first week but I expected a plateau after losing so much at first. I’ve also considered the idea that because myfitnesspal didn’t update my caloric needs until yesterday (at which point I finally lost 10 pounds), that might’ve slowed me down.

I’ve been in Ketosis non-stop, and I feel great. Sometimes I’ll get a headache if I don’t eat enough fat but that’s nothing a fat bomb can’t fix. No complaints overall, in fact me and my roommate are thinking of doing this for longer than the planned month! We’ll see! :)

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

Crossfit 3.1: FRAN

I lost count of all my crossfit posts (again lol), so I’m restarting the count at 3.1 (3= reboot, 1=day).

First day: FRAN oyyyy haha


WOD: “Fran”


my time: 12:05

Considering I rode a hard 12 miles yesterday this was killing my quads, but it was fun :)

I can’t tell if I’m hungry or my abs just hurt from working out

Two-a-day? Why not. :)
