Sports Nutrition & Body Composition Workshop


Well, I've decided just to see where this old body is at. I'm attending a four hour workshop today at Ottawa's Heart Institute with Beth Mansfield from Peak Performance.

I think I've caught the running bug and I'm now starting to take it a little more seriously than when I started really running six years ago.

You know, well I'm only going to run a 5K EVER! Then a couple of 10K's creep into your running resume, then a whole bunch more!

Then I hear myself saying, well, let's just try a half marathon, BUT THAT'S IT....

Okay three half marathon's later, since May 2007 and I'm training for my very first full Marathon as you all know.

Well, guess what? I think, (only think at this stage) of trying a tri in August/September!

Yikes, check my forehead for a fever.....(maybe it is the cold that I'm still suffering from, not sure).

I'll let you know how the workshop goes....

Catch you later, aligator.......

The workshop sounds like a great thing! Can't wait to hear how it went!

Good golly Miss Lily, you progressed the way I did. Never thought I'd ever do a marathon, now I'm thinking about ultras! Doing the Tri is a fantastic goal, I say go for it. If you never risk going too far, you'll never know how far you can go.

A marathon, whoa, steady on girl.I still think a marathon's what the uk. used to call a snickers bar.

It seems that you are never satisfied!! ;-) That's a good thing.

Wes said...

Ha ha ha! We'll have you doing Ironman in no time :-) Don't thank us!!

5k's are a gateway drug. A marathon was inevitable...just as a tri is also. Life's short. Give it a tri (see how I did that?)

Careful though, running is also highly contagious to those around you.

yeah.....

no

I believe that running is like a birth defect LOL (just kidding)

Seriously, you either are born to run or you run when danger dictates. I am in the latter group. No latent running genes here so I won't be catching any running bugs.

Happy Monday everyone.

Lily, we are the same age. I found your blog somewhere! Good for you, getting the tri bug!

I think it's neat how we all get excited about things we maybe never thought we'd do.

If you want to do something (whatever distance, whatever event), then go for it!
