training will be a bit off with a trip to san francisco tomorrow (presenting on autism interventions at another conference. i'm kind of a big deal). but i'm squeezing in a ride in the morn before my flight. yesterday i tortured myself on the trainer and today i made it to masters swim and track practice and even threw in a little abs 'n arms sesh(that's girl code for upper body and core. i love using words/phrases that guys would never use-especially if there is an apostrophe before the work begins).
...so a little rest due to my trip won't be bad because i'm ready for an easy day or two and planning on running a st. patrick's day 10k on saturday! (that is, if i sign up before it sells out. Last year, i ran a 10k in 40:27 (my first race ever). i haven't run a (road) 10k since then so i'm interested to see.
right now i'm watching 7 people on The Biggest Loser pedal bikes on trainers attached to long, en strips of large lightbulbs...the most watts/KJ/bulbs lit wins! hey, i want a 20-foot lightbulb strip in my trainer room! Actually, i want two so i can beat whoever is next to me. seriously, when i think about all the wasted energy we emit in james' garage, it makes me think there must be some way to capture it and use it....hmmmm....i can just picture "beth, get down there and start pedaling, the refrigerator is out!"
other than that, here is one of my very favorite funny blogs.."stuff white people like"...this entry is genuis....too true..
and i posted some ride snacks and recipes on vo2maxxed..
good night! (note to self: blogging at 10:15 is probably not good for the sleep problem)
