Update: Tuesday!

"You can't help respecting anybody who can spell TUESDAY, even if he doesn't spell it right; but spelling isn't everything. There are days when spelling Tuesday simply doesn't count.” 
~Winnie the Pooh

-I rode my bike to class again today, so I biked 7 miles. The ride to class is the worst. I would say it's 95% uphill. The ride back isn't as bad ;)

-Then the hubby and I swam 450 meters in the pool

I am working a little harder lately because I want to eventually attempt a triathlon. My main obstacle will be the running part....I tore my meniscus in my right knee a few years ago while running, so running can be pretty painful for me..but, I am hoping to build the muscles around my knee more, etc. so that I can finish the running portion :)

I hope everyone has a great rest of the night! As always, let me know your thoughts!


  1. like i said yesterday...loving these posts. ps i'm a regular in your spinning classes in case you are wondering who this weird sara girl is. :) wondering about drinks you don't mention them? do you always drink water?

  2. Hi Sara! Lol, I kinda assumed you were in my class ;) I was actually thinking I needed to add what I drink, but I don't keep up with the amount of water though :) so yes, I do typically only drink water or I drink unsweet tea! Thanks for following and commenting!!
