Veggie Chopping

It's Monday and in an attempt to make eating healthier easier I went ahead and cut up some of the veggies in my fridge. It is way easier for me to have them ready to go. I cut up mushrooms, carrots, celery, squash and peppers. The carrots and peppers are gone but I need to work on using these mushrooms...
This week has been nice because I have been getting into a more triathlon oriented workout schedule. I ran with a group of girls Mon and Wed at 5:30 am. It is so much better because it pushes me to run harder than I would alone and I get it out of the way in the morning. It has also been pretty perfect weather until this afternoon. It's going to be a rainy few days coming up here. On Tuesday I went to swim practice at 5:30 am and our coach gave us a 1,000 yds for time. Considering I had been out of the water for 2 weeks I was not excited to see my time on this one... :/ but I ended up coming in at 13:12 which I was pleased with, all things considered. I had done a weights class Monday afternoon so this made the last 500 yds really burn! I was glad to be back in the water. I plan on going to swim practice tomorrow morning pending I'm not too tired to wake up. 

I also went for a bike ride yesterday. OUTSIDE! That's big for me because I hadn't been outside on my bike since the duathlon which is ridiculous. We have had so many awesome fall days for riding but I just didn't want to do it. I am so glad that I did yesterday because since I refuse to ride outside in the cold I think that yesterday was the last of the warm weather around here. 

All in all I am super excited to put my race schedule together over the next couple of days and start some training this coming Monday.
