I was bragging to Ken about how I completely nailed my first week of Ironman Training. He laughed, it was only week one, so it was easy.
Once again, I am not really following a plan to a T. Being married to a training schedule is not how I like to roll. Instead, I like to use a few different plans as a guide for what I should be doing each week.
Currently I am mainly using Be Iron Fit by Don Fink.
Without further ado, the stats from the first week:
Monday: Rest day
Tuesday: 5 mile run on a snow day
Wednesday: 30 minute spin in the morning; 1500 m swim in the evening
Thursday: 1 hour spin on the trainer
Friday: 1600 m swim
Saturday: 1:15 minutes on the trainer; 15 minute transition run; 4 mile hike with Ken and Kya
Sunday: 7 mile run
Our snow does not really look like it is going to be melting anytime soon, so I will be at the gym pretty much everyday for the next few weeks.
Believe it or not, I am still eating my way through Gigi's Cupcakes.
I have taken a little break from over doing it on cupcakes, but have no fear, I am back. With Ironman training looming, you can bet I will be stuffing my face silly with cupcakes.
Back in October, I tried the Apple Pie Cupcake.
Yes, I had two of them. One was "supposed" to be for Ken, but we all know how that ended.
The Apple Pie cupcake was delicious. It tasted just like an apple pie, which is why I am now questioning why I baked an apple pie for Christmas. Next year, I am totally getting Gigi's Apple Pie cupcake instead.
Like I have said before, you can slap cream cheese frosting on anything, and I will eat it. Cream Cheese frosting might be one of the best things ever.
