Same time as my last one, but my run and bike were faster. The swim was much slower
#i hate ocean swims
Anyway, currently having issues because I love my triathlon/cycling tan lines, but at the same time I’m crazy self conscious about them, and running around in a bikini is not my cup of tea. :/
Race report to come. Lolz. I have stories about this one.
I don’t know how these people function.
Yesterday at dinner my madre proudly remarked that she only had two apples, a granola bar, and a protein shake all day. But then she was a bad girl and got a brownie. So then she went and ran four miles to try to burn it off. Her dinner was also a tiny portion.
She then congratulated my little sister on losing weight and her diet- she’s a collegiate swimmer and it was the off season. She didn’t technically have to lose weight.
And if I hear her complain one more time about how my dad is fat (he’s not. Not at ALL) I’m probably going to scream.
She’s a walking, talking, 5’8” thinspo blog.
Oh yeah, when I told her she needed to eat more if she wanted to run like that, she went crazy and nearly bit my head off
“I don’t have TIME to eat! You don’t know my life!”
Excuse me, I think I just finished four weeks of college hell in which I went to class eight hours a day, worked out, and studied until the wee hours of the morning. Guess what? I made time for FOUR meals a day. It isn’t impossible.
Also, she insinuated that my sleeping all day and eating a bigger dinner than her would make me fat.
1) no, it won’t
2) I am sick. Little kidney infection, you know, that thing? I’m supposed to make sure I get proper nutrition and rest while trying to fight that off. Gah.
3) just because you’re broken doesn’t mean I am. Leave me alone.
How does her body even function??
One of the classes is even Nutrition for Athletic Performance.
My stomach has been bothering me for the past month. Ever since spring break. It’s so unpleasant, and I’ve been avoiding working out outdoors because I don’t want to get sick far from home. Thankfully, I have the option to train indoors.
I’m starting to wonder if it is related to diet; I know I’ve been eating crap the entire time I’ve been back.
Also, my family on madre’s side has some major food intolerances that look like they’re passed down.
And it’s so pretty outside right now.
It is so much fun.
I’m starting to think that if this med school thing doesn’t pan out I need to be a personal trainer/nutritionist/physical therapist.
I still want to be a sports surgeon, but that could be oodles of fun, too.
I’m super pumped!
I’m also pumped that I get out of my Aerobics class on Thursday. Seriously, that’s about as far from aerobics as I think is possible. The class yesterday made us do a total of 120 calf raises, 140 squats, 140 lunges, and 30 burpees. Wow. It’s great, but it hurts!
Also yesterday, I took myself on several wonderful dates. First was a scenic bike ride. Only 30 miles, just around 20 mph. So that was great. Then I took myself to the gym where we got all hot and sweaty…. in the weight room (upper body, because why not?), then I gave myself a new book and spent several hours reading. It was a great night with myself. I know how to treat a girl. ;]
Today’s swim was killer. I loved it, but it was insane. I’m also very glad that I get to skip next Friday’s swim…. it looks scary…
Anywho! I probably need some advice on racing tactics for next week. I’m the low of the low as far as categories go. So who knows what will happen. :’D

What is it about black and red tt bikes that just screams sexy?
I might have a small obsession with bikes. Ok? Leave me be.
I took 35 min out of study time yesterday after a killer physics final to head to the gym. I did just a quick set of upper body/back workouts. I’ve gotten into the habit of higher weight for less reps and time. I’m beyond thrilled with waking up sore the next day. It’s pretty much the best feeling. You know you worked hard!
However, until Friday I am going to try to limit my workout times despite having hours readily available. I have my Organic Chemistry exam, which will require LOTS of dedicated study.
Oh, who am I kidding? I’m still going to go workout.
