Race Season!

Well I'm back in Victoria and currently not sure exactly where I'm going next or when I'm going so while I figure that out I've been planning this race season! If I stay here all summer I don't want to waste a perfectly good race season. So here is what it looks like: we have a team running the TC 10k at the end of April, it's a team composed of staff that work in establishments along Yates street, called the Yates Street Dine n Dash! I think it will be a great way to start the season. Then I plan on doing all five of the Subaru triathlon races. To see those, check out its a fantastic race series. Then we also have a team going to the Tough Mudder run in Whistler which I'm super pumped about. I love obstacle courses and this one is unreal! And after the triathlon season I want to run the Royal Victoria Marathon! So that should be enough racing for the summer. I'm SO excited!

St. Augustine

ROAD TRIP!!! As you know, traveling is just about my favorite thing, other than training! So with not much time left in Florida, I've got five days off and we've gone on a road trip!! As a fitness junkie, it's always a little worrisome to leave my gym and workout habits. BUT, I just got my new best friend in the mail, the TRX training system!! Check it out at!! It's amazing!! You can hang it from doors, or a tree, or just about anywhere that's weight bearing, and do a fantastic body weight workout. It's amazing. I just hung it from the hotel room door and had a killer workout! I've also become somewhat of a Nike NTC junkie. It's an iphone app and it has some amazing workouts when you're strapped for time, as I often am. The nice NTC lady even talks you through your workout and you use your own playlists and the more minutes you workout, the more cool rewards you unlock through the app!! Loving it!! So anyway, we are currently in St. Augustine, Florida which is a gorgeous town. I just love it!! It's actually the oldest town in the US, there's gorgeous architecture everywhere. There's even an amazing old fort that they do historical re-enactments at! We got to see them shoot a cannon today!! Anyhow, I'm off for a swim in the hotel pool, gotta get some cardio in! Here's  few pictures of St. Augustine! Tomorrow we head to New Orleans!!! So excited!!

Beat the Heat

So training in the super hot central Florida humidity is interesting. I went for a run last night at 10pm and it was still brutally humid out. Im adapting. Starting to get used to it, but I still prefer to stay in the gym if at all possible!!

A few of the concierge girls have been asking for exercise advice and the other day I instituted hourly cardio blasts in the lounge kitchen! So much fun, every hour we do jumping jacks, pushups, mountain climbers, knee-ups, and burpees. It's a great activity break in our day, I love it!!

I'm currently working fairly hard at gaining muscle mass before I get home. Once im back to really intensive triathlon training, it'll be a nice solid base to start back from. Plus it gives my body a bit of a change, switching it up is fun! I'm looking forward to coming home and training with all my favorite friends from Victoria!!

Norwegian Sky

So I set sail with 3 South African friends from work for fun and adventure aboard the lovely Norwegian Sky cruise ship!! I've never been on a cruise ship so I was pretty excited! I've also never been to the Bahamas so it's a double win! The ship is amazing!! There's so much to do!! Ping pong, a driving range, bingo games, a spa, a gym, comedy shows, shops, a nightclub, and a billion places to eat. My favorite thing has to be the fresh fruit!! It's everywhere all the time! I haven't eaten so much fruit since I left Canada!! I sure do miss fruit!! I've taken a pledge to myself to take the stairs everytime. No elevator, no matter what!! I feel like it helps counteract the amount of food I've consumed!! The on board gym is amazing. Cardio equipment with tv's on them and full length windows that look onto the ocean! I keep getting distracted by the movies on the tv's and staying on the cardio machines for hours! Yesterday we dropped anchor at Great Stirrup Cay, which is Norwegian Cruise Lines private island. It's lovely. We got there nice and early and lounged by the beach, and did a bunch of swimming! Today we went to Nassau, which reminds me a lot of Martinique! I loved it. Tonight is our last night then back to Miami and the drive home!!Treadmill on the ocean!! BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging.
