Before I go into my photo blast, I just want to share that my triathlon training is going as planned and I am right on track. My hope is that sticking to this schedule will help me eliminate the exhaustion that comes with three consecutive sports. Also, I always get scared about my heart and adrenaline in tri's...so the brick training is good for teaching myself how to control my breathing.
On to the food!
fruit salad, egg & feta, sprouted english muffin with spinach pesto || protein oats, fruit salad
annie's mac & cheese with roasted brussels || tropical boozy baked oatmeal

Okay, so I guess I haven't been as uninspired as I thought. I also made sweet potato brownies for Relay for Life and peanut butter cups for Mother's Day! Woo!
And Mother's Day - how did I celebrate that? I asked my Mom to join me on a bike ride to a local vineyard for some exercise, sun, and wine!
We rode a total of ~28 miles and for 2 hours through several towns, rolling hills, and beautiful scenery. We were also able to create a different route home so it was nice to ride a loop rather than out and back.
The shoulder of the roads, for the most part, was wide enough that we could ride alongside one another and talk quite a bit, which was nice. My Mom is currently away in Malawi for a couple weeks so I'm glad we were able to find the time to spend together.
And don't tell her this, but this was my #2 favorite part of the day......
Up next: Gear for triathlon & marathon training. After accumulating items over the past year, I am now completely prepared for any race I may encounter, and I've done it on a VISTA stipend!
