Enjoying some tea from #vinakacafe in #carlsbad after a short swim session. I’m not an endurance swimmer at all. 😦 😜

Oh dear, I tried swimming today and I can tell you that I’m horrible at it. Endurance wise. I need to get into shape in the water so I can start doing triathlons. There’s one on October 26 Oceanside lifetime tri. Which has a 1500m swim in it. So I have begun training. I know I won’t do great, but I’m hoping my bike and run can make up for it. So yeah goodnight :)

Hey Tumblr friends, hope everything is going great with you all. I’ve been slacking on my cycling, yoga, and weight lifting, but you know what? I’m happy regardless without it. That doesn’t mean that I’m stopping. However I’m writing this as an intervention for myself to start these things again because I know that I won’t have it for long. I’ve got a year left in beautiful Southern California.

Therefore, I am going to be putting a lot of effort into cycling and running, and possibly swimming. Once I get home to Virginia, I am going to try to start doing races like road, triathlons and plenty of other fun things. I’ve got the best environment in the country to train here, so there shouldn’t be any excuses from me not to train. 

Anyways, I just did a duathlon this weekend in Camp Pendleton. It was a 2k Run, 30k bike ride, then a 5k run. I thought I did awesome. I really enjoyed the entire experience. The first run was cake, the bike ride was a pain in the legs but nothing that I couldn’t handle. I averaged 20.7 MPH on that, then the 5k run was great. The first 1/4 mile or so my calf muscles decided to cramp up on me, however, I pushed through it and eventually caught pace and wound up averaging 6:44 per mile and finished in 21:12.

Now my calf muscles hurt like hell, and to top it all off we went on a short run today, and I can tell you that that was not a great idea at all, even though I didn’t have a choice in the matter any ways.

Good evening all!
