The pics below explain the last couple of weeks- life in the farmlands, my dog which is my life, and my "dream maker" room where i train which is the other half of my life.
People- Consistency is a huge part of success with whatever you do! Plan for a day here or there that is not the normal and all the other days - get in a routine and have no excuses when it comes to skipping out of a gym workout!

First off, I am really diving into this whole Blogging Era and love reading other blogs. That being said, please tweet me your blog so I can follow you (@tritheshore).
Second, I just want to go over some quick tips for you when it comes to eating and when to eat.
1) Big Breakfast, medium lunch, small dinner
2) veggies and fruit are great snacks
3) a friend made me replace trail mix (nuts and salty almonds) w/ dry healthy cereal - its cheaper and better for you
4) I love to put cinnamon and honey when marinating my chicken. Very simple way of getting extra nutrients in a meal
5) Have One "cheat" day a week where you deviate from your nutrition plan. Mine is Friday and I like to get Pizza and Ice Cream for dinner :)

Quick Training Update:
Raced a local Tri part of SetupEvents TrySports Tri Series last weekend as a prep for my last "A" race in 2 weeks. It went quite well being that i had a high volume training week and had my "Cheat" eating day the day before. I came in 2nd Overall and ran down 2 of my training mates come off the bike to clinch 2nd. Quite fun really! Keep at it peeps. Remember, tweet me your blog so I can read them. I love seeing what you all say.

Live Life,

Just Do It!

I will get to my subtitle in a few. But first, a training update. Since Nationals, I have continued on my vigorous training for one more race in October. While I am excited to have one more race, I am also excited to have a week that Does Not include a 4.15am wake up call. Out of the 3, swimming is feeling like my strong point w/ running right behind. Biking- well- we all have a weakness :) . I did do a 41miler earlier this week avg. 21.7 w/  an awesome group and a 33miler avg. 22.5mph on Wednesday so its coming along. Come to find out - we did this one huge loop that goes right by my house. So thats awesome to know i have that route handy.
On to the Just Do It! Examples of my "Just Do It"'s - lying in the middle of the road at night w/ my dog staring at the stars (getting lost in space), having my jeep top down when it is pouring and loving every bit of it at stop lights where i really get drenched, singing at the top of my lungs in my jeep at a stop sign to my favorite song, randomly staying at a families house on the other side of the nation(Washington) so I can attend a National Race. Learning on the fly how to make a burnt hamburger patty taste delicious (make alot of veggies and chop up the burnt hamburger and add ketchup). Not really knowing how to upkeep a yard but realizing Youtube has the answer to EVERYTHING. Anywho- I can go on with spontaneous actions but what I am trying to say is that this is what life is about. Who cares what the person in the car next to you thinks, or is it the end of the world if you get soaked from a downpour. Or if you forget to put oil in your lawn mower ;). No matter how old you are, or if your single, dating, or married - i know there are plenty of things out there that you want to do and they are right outside your front door.
Just Do It!!!
