Hello Hello! Happy Tuesday! I hope every had a wonderful long weekend.
|I finally bought nuun. So many people rave about it, so I thought I would give it a try.|
|Yummy! They might become my favorite workout snack.|
|They will have this on the IM course, so I wanted to make sure it wouldn't upset my stomach..|
|New GU flavors. Strawberry Banana, Mint Chocolate and Lemon Sublime|
And here comes the drama- Saturday morning I was supposed to do a 94 mile ride with Team Z in Davidsonville, MD. I was pretty excited about this ride. 94 miles would have been a distance PR, and I had a bunch of new snacks to try try out. Plus last week was a little stressful, so I was looking forward to a long sweat session with my awesome teammates. Unfortunately, I was not able to finish the ride. Earlier last week, I changed saddles. I switched from a $20 Nashbar saddle to the Adamo Road saddle. UPGRADE! :) Everyone seems to love their Adamo, so I thought I would too. Regardless of how awesome this saddle was supposed to be, I knew I didn't want Saturday's ride to be my first ride with the new saddle. So this past week, I did my 2 bike workouts with it, and I didn't have any issues with it. Woohoo! I thought Saturday's ride was going to be great. I could not have been more wrong. After about 15 miles, I started having shooting pain in my lower back. I could not get comfortable in the saddle, and as a result, I could not get comfortable in my aerobars. For fear that I was going to seriously hurt myself, I decided to stop after the first loop. :( Riding 43 miles did not give me a new distance PR, and left me feeling very frustrated and disappointed. Even though I loved the Honey Stinger waffles, the ride still sucked overall.
|Fuzzy before my run. Doesn't he look happy to be up so early on a Sunday??|
|Milkshake = BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS!|
Ater my run, I was able to get a nice little nap in before the family came over. Sunday afternoon was very similar to Saturday- lots of talking, relaxing, eating, hanging out with my super cute niece, and watching the Mountaineers beat the Thundering Herd. Lazy Sundays are my favorite!
