"Believe in me....


...sometimes the weak become the strong..."






My friend J and I had decided to do somewhat of a mock-triathlon today.... with the intentions of doing 1000M in the pool, almost 24 miles on the bike, and then a short 2 mile run. We did all but the run... she's been struggling with a sore knee, and after my 5 miles yesterday, I didn't want to push it.

We hit the pool just shortly after 7, as the beautiful sun was coming up...The swim was great.... a consistent 1000M in approximately 20 minutes. From there we drove to J's house got our bikes ready (checked the air in our tires...) ... and were on the road.
We road out to a small town southeast of Fargo named Sabin.
The roads and the weather couldn't have been any better. It was a nice easy ride; nothing too strenuous.

I came home and was disappointed when I remembered I still had to do my pushups. Egh.
But, I did them, maxed out at 32 with a total of 124.

Now, I am going to head into school for a few hours since I didn't make it there yesterday.

Happy hump day, y'all!

Swim 1000M, 20:00, avg. 2:00/100M
Bike 23.8 miles, 1:53:00, avg. 12.6mph
72 degrees and sunny when finished

First, your quote is inspiring. Thanks for sharing it.
1000m in 20 minutes, wow. Good job! Do you and J train together often? I wish I had a partner like that.

Wes said...

Killa! Too bad about the run though. That's my kinda weather!!

Lisa Slow-n-Steady said...

Your pushup-ups ROCK. I'm hoping that someday maybe I can do 20 at a time. I can't imagine doing as many as you have done.

Sherry said...

Awesome! I love it when a double workout comes together and your realize, "hey! If I add it all together I did 2/3 of a triathlon today!" I did one on Tuesday with swimming and running. :o)

You seemed to have really stepped up your volume lately and I think you are going to reap great benefits from doing so. Keep up the terrific work!

What an awesome workout! Plus, it's great you have a friend to train with!

I've fallen WAY behind on my push up challenge, but plan to be back to them as soon as I can put some weight on my toes... :)
