Throwback Thursday: Cross training

Ally “graduates” 6th grade in 2 weeks. I cannot believe her time in elementary school is almost done. She was so little when she started kindergarten and I am so proud of the young lady she is becoming. I posted this picture the first day of 6th grade this year.

Throwback Thursday post: Workout fuel

I am loving Throwback Thursday lately. A friend of mine posted a really cute picture of Ally and her son from when they were 18 months old and now they are starting 7th grade in the fall. Time flies!

This post was from January this year, I was talking about pre and post workout fuel and supplements. You can find the original post here.

You can “pin” it for later if that’s easier.

Throwback Thursday post: Racecation tips

This is a perfect Throwback Thursday post since I’m leaving tomorrow to go to an out of town race.

6 tips for a less stressful racecation

(Pin the post for later)

I haven’t even packed yet. We have had so much going on this week and I didn’t have my normal Wednesday off since I’m off tomorrow. I have a few things laid out and I have my list, or most of it. I will most likely take 2 sets of clothes for the race and decide Saturday morning what to wear. It’s supposed to be in the 60′s so I’m thinking shorts and tank top.

packing list

I think this will be the first half that I will not wear a fuel belt. I’m going to carry a hand held water bottle. I think. I can’t decide. I like the comfort of having water when I want it but that water belt adds weight. I’m ready to ditch it in races. I can still refill the hand held when needed.

I decided to race this one, not use it as a training run. I knew deep down it’s what I wanted. I think I’m too competitive to use a race as a training run anyway.

Anyone else racing this weekend?
