#PictureFrameFriday #5: Triathlon Training!

On August 15, Patrick, my dad and I are participating in a Sprint Triathlon. Soooo that means we must train!! I haven’t made much time for swimming with my marathon training and all, so this morning we SWAM and it felt SO good!

Let me back up…


She’s always been my best friend and confidante and voice of reason and is the best snack-maker and grocery-shopping partner EVER. Love you always mamacita! πŸ™‚

Last night, we hung out with my puppy Gus πŸ™‚ And it was amazing, because he’s the weirdest and silliest and most loving dog ever ❀

Anyways, we had a relaxing night with him and watched Raiders of the Lost Ark, and cooked half a duck. Yeah, you read that right.Β Half a duck. We baked it. And it is ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS.

That was perfect fuel for our mini triathlon workout this AM. Since I have to run 16 miles for my marathon build-up tomorrow, I decided to forego running and go on the elliptical to get my heart rate flyin, and to break a great sweat! I did that for about 25 minutes, then jumped on the stair climber for another 10. Talk about a leg day workout!

I canNOT take him seriously with his goggles on…

Of course, I forgot my swim cap and goggles, so I sectioned off my upper and lower body work in the pool. I did 15 minutes of legs-only and 15 minutes of arms-only, alternating when I got tired πŸ˜‰

Ahhhh, that’s my happy place. In the water ❀ What a GREAT workout!

What is your favorite pool workout? Do you love swimming as much as I do?? πŸ™‚ Have any fun weekend plans?
