IRONMAN IN HIGH HEELS: TRAINING AND WORKING OUT….IN A GROCERY STORE?

Let’s face it. There are days where getting to the gym is impossible. You get stuck at work, life gets in the way or….and let’s be honest here….it’s Dancing With The Stars night. (There are priorities!) As someone training for an Ironman, this can be quite frustrating!

Last week’s training went pretty well, especially since I had the latter part of the week off from work. I managed to cut the Diet Coke out of my diet (although I miss it!) and for the most part ate healthy. Yes, I did have some treats, but like I said before, for me, one treat a day is better than a whole cheat day. Continue reading

Confession time! I did not train at ALL yesterday. I had a rare day off, the weather was yucky and I was feeling a bit under the weather. I also desperately needed to clean my house. (okay, half the day was spent watching The Golden Girls on DVD, but I did get some things done!) Anyway, today was a catch up day to get my workout in. We still had crappy weather, but I was able to work out at home. Continue reading

Today’s training session was a bit of a challenge. I was all set to do a run (4 miles was my goal) but disaster struck when my treadmill decided to crap out at mile 2.59! It was too cold to go outside to run, so my plans had to change. I instead worked out on my total body machine and boy, are my muscles sore! Continue reading

Another day, another Ironman prep session. Today was a workout at work day, but at least I remained VERY active, which is important. I must admit my eating wasn’t up to par because I was so busy (in fact, I was so busy I skipped lunch, bad Sammi!) but I did have a nice carb loaded meal and will balance it out with protein and other, better foods tomorrow.

Today I began my first workout for the Ironman! I know it is a year away, but I plan to SLAY this thing and finish in less than twelve hours. (Ideally, I want to finish in less than ten, but we will see what happens.) Anyway, although I went on a run this weekend, today is the first day I officially began training. Continue reading
