This has been a pretty good training week for the most part. Because we went on our camping trip, I missed several days of training, but it's all good and it was totally worth it! :)
I did my longest OWS to date this morning...2 MILES!!! Woohoo! I felt good and it was a great confidence booster! :)
One thing I noticed though was that I got sooo thirsty. I swam two laps, and during the second lap my mouth was so dry. You don't think I could stash a water bottle in my wetsuit do you? Ha ha.
Oh, and I got new goggles! My old ones finally gave out and started leaking, so I went on the search for a new pair. I ended up getting the TYR NEST PRO and so far I like them! They fit a lot differently then my old goggles, but I think they're going to work really well, especially in the open water!
I did another long brick this week and tested out a new nutrition plan. Since I know I don't want to do all liquid nutrition, I did a mix of EFS drink, honey stinger waffles, and honey stinger chews (thanks for the idea Mandy) They are sooo yummy and A LOT easier to chew than shot bloks. I think it worked well for the most part, but I think I need to tweak the amount of EFS I take in next time.
Other Things Too:
* I took my boys to our local dollar (technically $2.50) theater to see the movie Rio and it was awesome! It was such a cute movie with a great story line and my boys loved it! Jon [HERE] did some of the feather animation and I have to say it was beautiful! Great job Jon!
* I got a new cookbook and I absolutely love it! It was created by a mom of two adorable girls and it is full of delicious, easy recipes! I'm planning on doing a full review of it soon! In the mean time, if you want to check out her blog, which is awesome, you can check it out [HERE].
I broke down and ordered a t-shirt from Beth [HERE] and I LOVE it! It is super cute and will be a great addition to my running wardrobe! Thanks Beth! :)
By the way, I had my 6yr. old take the picture. It's a little crooked, but not bad! :)
* My husband has had a pretty long week at work, so I thought I would help out and mow the lawn for him. I'm a little ashamed to say that I've only done it a handful of times, but it's just something "he does." Anyways, I actually liked it. Dare I say it was even relaxing?
Well, needless to say, the yard looked great! BUT, I totally annihilated one of my dog's tennis balls. I totally didn't see it in front of the mower and I mowed right over it! OOPS!
I hope you are all having a great weekend!!!
Hopefully I'll be back with the Tasty Tuesday and Humpastry Day recipes soon! :)
