Lifting and Triathlons

So to kick off the new year, big J and I have gym memberships.  I see this as an adventure to meet new people at 5am and to also really work on my core and upper body.  With any luck I'll have some rocking abs with in the next few months - you know, to get ready for spring break in Panama City Beach.  Take that spring breakers :) (hope you read into my sarcasm) Anyway - it's been years since I've ventured into this type of establishment, so thankfully Tawnee was nice enough to answer some of my strength training questions.  Check out her blog when you get the chance. 
I am really excited to throw this into my training!

I'm slowly getting my racing schedule together for 2011.  I have a few races down for sure, but a few more which will be awesome.  More to come on that later.  ;)

In marathon training news:
We had a great 20 mile run on Saturday morning.  We kept a 9:06 avg which I am very excited about for a training run.  And our longest run since Ironman.  I'm feeling good about hitting my goal for the Tallahassee Marathon in a month!

In laundry news:



Really? How the hell does something like this happen? 

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

whoa, hungry laundry what!

I'm interested in your thoughts on lifting + tri training. I do a lot of lifting & my body is used to it, but I'm not sure what to do when I ramp up training - my instinct is to keep it in but light, but my running buds keep telling me to drop it out.

Those laundry gnomes will get you every time.

good luck with the laundry-that looks fun! and bring on the strength training. i think tawnee has inspired us all. i need to start hitting the weights harder for sure. glad to hear you are rocking your marathon training !

You should leave it and try to untangle it after a long run when your brain is fried. That would be even funnier...

It's so funny - you would think all of us hit the gym with all the other sports we do, it's just so hard to fit in....but it is a new year...
