Well since Burt posted a picture of me on here and everyone I know was talking about it, I may as well start blogging again. The reason for my long absence is this...I had a bad bike accident in December that trashed my hips and pelvis, and I couldn't run for months. It was a bummer because it messed up my Ironman training pretty badly too. Then I decided to go back to school full time in addition to IM training, and then I got cast as the title role of "Medea" at Dixie College...sooo....I basically had NO time for anything but school, eat, sleep, rehearsals, and training. My poor orphaned eight kids. Anyway, I ended up getting heat exhaustion on the Ironman and not being able to finish (I don't want to talk about it!!) so I ran a marathon a week ago to get my finish line fix. It was a small race, only about 90 runners, in Blanding, UT, so I finished 4th overall in the women and took first in my division. Well, that will probably NEVER happen again, although I am considering becoming a small race junkie so that I can win awesome little trophies and have more brag rights - haha!!
Currently I am doing cross fit as the base of my training, and will be doing interval work and time trials to prepare for my upcoming races. I am planning on the Utah Half 70.3 in August, and am also planning on getting my BQ at the Saint George Marathon this October.
Cross fit WOD today:
4 rounds, 7 each, 18:14. Hand Stand Push-ups, Thrusters (65#), Knees to elbows, Deadlifts (85#), Burpees, Kettle Bell Swings (35#), Pullups. I was slow today...that's what I get for taking 10 days off and eating my mother's amazing but not-so-healthy cooking while on vacation!
