I competed in my first triathlon with friends. I was our biker for a half Ironman race, which motivated me to want to get into triathlons.
I went to southern Iowa to visit my grandma for a few days. I love spending time with her.
I started doing planks, although I don't think I would consider this a highlight. They are hard!
I read the entire Selection series -- The Selection, The Elite and The One.
I also read Divergent.
Current Excitement: I signed up for my first triathlon. It is a sprint (400 swim, 11 bike and 5k run) on Sunday. I'm not concerned about the bike or run, but I am not a good swimmer.
Current Stress: Swimming/triathloning. I am quite nervous about the swimming part of the triathlon, not only because I suck at swimming, but because I need to be disconnected from my pump. I am afraid that with I will be incredibly nervous and it will send my blood sugar very high during the swim.
Current A1C: 5.1. I went to the doctor this week and found out. For the past few times he hasn't told me what my A1C was, so I was a little surprised this time.
Current Song: Classic by MKTO
Current Drink: Ice water.
Current Food: Mixed fruit. It is convenient and delicious.
Current Wish: That there were more hours in the day. So much to do, so little time.
Currently Thinking: About my track workout I'm doing by myself today. Last week I did 16 x 400, which was great (I love 400s), this week I'm going to do a ladder.
How was your July?
