Adding Mileage

This week I've put in 10 miles of running 20 miles of cycling and 3 strength training workouts. Tomorrow I will be doing my second brick workout and once again I will be going to Donaldson Center. I'm looking to get at least 15 miles on the bike and at least 2 miles of running maybe more if my body lets me.

I've also been able to drop a couple of pounds since last weekend and I hope that trend continues. My allergies have been bothering me all day today, must be something new blooming out there. Despite that I got my strength work done at lunch and here's the rundown.

Shoulder/Triceps/Biceps/Core
Dumbbell Front Raise: 3 x10
Dumbbell Shoulder Press: 3 x10
Dumbbell Lateral Raise: 3 x10
Hammer Curls: 3 x10
Standing Dumbbell Curls: 3 x10
Straight Bar Curls: 3 x10
Shoulder Press: 3 x10
Weighted Crunches: 4 x10
Standing Calf Raises: 3 x20

My plan for tomorrow is to get up around 8am and eat my favorite breakfast...

2 Slices 7 grain bread
1 Medium Banana
2 tbsp Natural Peanut Butter
32oz water

pack up my gear and head on out to Donaldson Center. Hoping I will get started no later then 9:30. Mendy and David have their drill this weekend so maybe I can at least catch up with them to say hey and wish David luck on his triathlon Sunday. My run last night was fantastic as it was the first time I just went out and didn't worry about how fast I was, I just enjoyed the run. I feel so blessed to be able to get out there and run and it feels great. I realized that I really do love to run. Stayed tuned for my brick workout update. Hope everyone had a great Friday. - Jason

When you are loving it, speed and distance just don't matter. Does it?

You're doing it man. I admire your dedication.

Go out there and tackle that brick tomorrow.

That breakfast actually does sound yummy. :-)

I wish I could just let myself go out and run without feeling like it has to be timed. LOL! I guess I am just a person who needs to know every little number and know that I am getting faster. Silly, huh?
