Day 11. Mistake

image

Was wondering if it would be a mistake to swim so early, been cold….

Monday, make it happen 1.20.14

HEEEELLLOOO MONDAY!

Last week was super productive fitness wise! I finished week 5 of StrongLifts 5×5, and I worked out 5 days, woot woot!

Here’s a quick rundown…

Progress pic, belly is finally starting to shrink, and shoulders are starting to grow.

In anticipation of spri tri training, I’ve added spin into the routine…been good about taking my post workout protein. Now if I could only get my water intake back to a gallon. :/ I used to be so good.

Swimming has definitely become an enjoyable part of my workout regimen.

The weather last week here in SoCal was unseasonably hot, not warm, HOT! Mid 80’s all week, unfortunately, drought and dry heat don’t mix, and there were some bad wild fires, thank God no one lost their lives. In the pic below you can see smoke over the water. Keep in mind the fires were about 40-50 miles inland. Pretty insane.

Here’s a random post strength training cardio pic. Incline treadmill walking…working on that glute-hamstring tie in.

Sunday was very relaxing, spent a lot of the day reading book #2 for my 2014 reading challenge.

I also got in some cardio and abs before my SEAHAWKS kicked some butt in the NFC!

It was a good week indeed! How are you guys doing? Anyone else on a fitness mission? I’d love to hear what you all are up to!

Day 11. Looking down

What’s been going on…A Late Wednesday What’s Up

One of the items on my do to list for this year, is a sprint tri. With that being said, I’ve finally hit the pool. And have been uber enjoying it! I’ve found a few tri training plans, just need to pick the best option for me. I’m super excited!ย 

I’m still doing the StrongLifts 5×5 program, still loving it. The plan is to keep bulking until March, 12 weeks total. I just have to find a way to incorporate the whole, swim-bike-run thing into my schedule. Also, I really need to figure out why my back is not getting any better, haven’t run in forever. This ish has gotta stop!

Here are a few snaps from life as of late…
