Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. ~ Margaret D. Nadald

Our Father also gifted us with the nature to nurture, keen sensitivity to the Spirit, selflessness, discernment, and heroic faith. No wonder our Father placed us at the heart of the family and thus at the center of the plan of salvation. We are the Lord's secret weapon. ~ Sheri Dew

Tri Week 1

Week 1 is over and has been sprinkled with success... and failure :-). I had myself all geared up and ready to start strong and then realized that I was going to AZ for the weekend. No problem, I'll just move my rest days (which should be days 2 & 6) to the weekend and bike the day I leave and the day I get home. And I should mention that I already tweaked my schedule so that those rests days fall on Tuesday and Sunday, since I don't train on Sunday's.

Success: Ate really well, even kept a food journal, for the first part of the week and
exercised everyday... even looked forward to it! I pushed through the fatigue of the day and looked excitedly at my treadmill every time I passed it knowing that the two of us had a date!

Failure: Come Friday I was so tired that doing a 20 minute bike was not going to happen,
I just wanted to get in the car and get the drive over with. Then the weekend I ate out (fairly healthily, but still), had
a bunch of sugar, needed Pepsi to keep myself up on the drives, you get the picture! I felt TERRIBLE! Talk about being sick to your stomach. I'm so happy to be home and am not going any
where anytime soon! As for exercise I was supposed to do a 35 minute ride last night, and that didn't happen... so, time to detox from the junk in my body and start week #2!

Week 1's schedule:
Monday: Mom's into fitness Boot Camp workout weeks 3&4.
Tuesday: 20 minute run, ab work
Wednesday: 35 minute bike
Thursday: 20 minute run
Friday: [should have been 20 minute bike]
Saturday: Rest
Sunday: Rest
Monday: [should have been 35 minute bike]

When and where are you doing the tri? I'm doing one too in St. George in Nov. Happy training!

Well, I wanted to do one 7 Aug at the Socorro Chile Festival here in New Mexico.... I think I realized it might be too much for me to actually go do, but I'm training like I would be going... and every once in a while have the thought that I might be able to pull it off if I get enough people to help with kids.

The one that started me thinking and that I will absolutely do is the Polar Bear Tri at White Sands Missile Range (also New Mexico). It's on 11 Dec.

When is your race? I'm so glad that you're doing one too! Makes me want to drive up and do it with you!
