  1. bike was 38min for 12.5 miles, swim 7min for 300yd. Usually I can swim about 4:10-20 for 300yd, this included the run up from transition and the run back down to finish.. some of which I may have walked, ha. when I was young I ran shirtless because I had abs and didn't care. In my 50s as the flab appeared I got self-conscious about it and invested in a number of run singlets. Now I'm old enough not to care much anymore.. in fact have also gone back to swim training in a Speedo brief, which makes people avert their eyes I think ;-)

  2. Great RR -- although I want details of bike and swim pace! Lol! Also I've got bike envy! Your Cervelo is super pretty! Sorry about Covid. Just take your workouts super easy. I know a bunch of people who have had it and said it's super hard to get the lungs back.

  3. I lift. It's been fun this summer bringing Bean to the gym with me and teaching them about the benefits and sharing my philosophy around weights. I like to lift heavy and challenge myself to get stronger. Had a long break from the gym with COVID. Feels good to be back in a place that has weights that challenge me. I quickly outgrow what my home has to offer.

  4. Guess we aren't done with covid yet. Son, daughter, son-in-law, grandson, granddaughter all have had it in the last few weeks. I may have been exposed to granddaughter last weekend. Ought to see symptoms today or tomorrow if it was enough of a viral load to get me, too. Planning second booster next week. Weather like we've had lately, I wish I cared less about people seeing my gut. I'd be running shirtless for sure.

  5. Calories are so minimal for us short women. Lots of fresh produce and good quality protein- chicken, tuna, fish. Minimal carbs. Weight will come off especially with your running and lifting (I think you lift?) Muscle burns more calories.

  7. Hmm, is biking easier? It could be. Yes, you get to roll down hills or coast to take a break. There is one effort I can use to compare, Mt. Washington. I am no speedster at either running or riding. I ran Mt. Washington 4 times, and rode it once in the official road races. All my times are around the same, 2 hours(ish). All 5 trips up were hard, the ride was the hardest physical event I've ever done. I don't think I'll ever do it again. The runs were hard, but I'll happily do it again, once Covid settles down.

  8. Diet and weight are such personal things as we are all different. I think it is important to eat health foods most of the time, and we all need protein, carbs, and fat. I recommend "Nancy Clark's Sports Nutrition Guidebook". Nancy has alot of experience as sports nutritionist and the book has great nutrional info and recipes for active people. Personally, reducing portion size was the biggest factor for me getting to a more healthy wieght.

  9. So ambitious. Good for you. I'm down to marathon weight even though I'm not training much lately (as mentioned ad nauseum in all my posts), thanks to drastically reducing sugar and carbs. Eliminating sugar wasn't too hard, but cutting carbs is killer. After 4 months, it's habit enough that I don't need to track anymore.

  10. Lol. I did say that the remainder of the post was not running related. No worries. Hubby is a great sailor but this is his theme song:

  11. I get no credit for helping your comeback?? Cross Train, Cross Train, Cross Train.... lol! Happy to read that things are coming back. And biking doesn't have to be easier than running. My 8 miles that I ran on Saturday were WAY easier than the 40 miles that I rode on Sunday.
