Sick day = Missed workout?


Happy Day Late Easter!

Last night was rough to say the least. I spent half the night coughing, sneezing, and blowing my nose. Once I woke up this morning I realized that everyone else in my family is feeling sick as well. The first thing I thought about after coming to grips with the fact that this cold may last a few days was my workout schedule. I know the workouts for this week, and today was supposed to be moderate (4 x 1000).  The competitive side of me always comes out when I miss a workout, and it frustrates me that someone may be training when I am not. However, maybe taking a rest day will set me a day ahead of my competitors. Mabye I need this rest day, and my sickness is the body’s way of telling me to take a rest. This brings me to the question(s)…………

How do you know when to take a rest, and when to push through?

Does missing a workout cause cause stress and fear for loss of conditioning/ability?


Recent Eats


Easter Break!


Hey, guys! I am on Easter break and do not have too much time for a post, so I thought I would show you some recent eats (on the road).

The only breakfast that keeps me full into lunch – pumpkin oats w/ greek yogurt, cinnamon, pumpkin, and peanut butter…..topped with kashi fiber twigs

A great book to read on the (long) ride! Book review coming soon!

Caramel and Chocolate Kashi Bar

Green Bean “chips” with a laughing cow cheese

Subway sandwich with all the veggies except olives and pickles. Dressing = sweet onion and red wine vinegar

Questions – Do you find it hard to eat healthy on road trips?

What are some of your favorite snacks to bring on the car ride?
