i’ll get the nice and boring stuff out of the way. went ahead and successfully attempted the two tri bricks early this afternoon. keep in mind that when i say ‘successfully attempted’ it actually means i didn’t drown or fall off the bike. i actually surprised myself, and although it was tough i’m glad i did it. i had breakfast around 930 this morning, which consisted of a sole banana. i’m so used to just walking out the door without anything to eat at all, so when my workout started around 2 pm. needless to say that banana did not get me through much. note to self: don’t workout on an empty stomach, it will totally kicked me in the butt about 4 miles into the bike ride…

the swim went better than anticipated, i think i’m to the point where i can work on longer distances for stamina’s sake. i had a nice short break when i went to change into workout clothes, and hopped on the bike to start that workout. it started off well, but i hit a wall and it seemed as though all the energy was sucked out of me. i hate making excuses, so i now know that i need to eat better before a workout like this. i’m also guessing i was somewhat dehydrated from the pool being so warm and not drinking water all day. i thought i would never get to 12 miles on the bike, and when i finally did i couldn’t imagine running/walking/crawling a 5k afterwards.

with all this said, i feel as though i had a decent workout and i look forward to the ones in the future. so 750m swim and a 12 mile bike ride. i’ll take it.

after my workout my family and i decided that we were going to celebrate Mother’s Day a day early. in doing so, we went out to her favorite Peruvian restaurant and i have to say that it’s the second best meal i’ve ever had. i don’t know if it’s because the last thing i ate was that banana, but this place was absolutely exquisite tonight!! we go about once every few months, and i never have a complaint but tonight was absolutely amazing. i had an anticuchos appetizer, and tons of ceviche with sweet potato. if anyone is ever in cincinnati, and don’t mind trying new foods, i HIGHLY recommend “Sabor Peruano” – you won’t be disappointed!

as for tomorrow’s workout, that all depends on what mommy wants to do all day 🙂 maybe i can take her on a hike. i will try everything in my power not to turn it into a trail run.
