McDonalds Saved My Life

I am not even joking here. ¬†McDonalds showed up at the perfectt time to hydrate me with a large rootbeer (I know soda actually dehydrates you, but it was all I could think about for the previous 2 hours) followed by a large powerade….it only took me 3 minutes to finish them both and before I knew it I was singing again.

Some cyclists doing the tour de France were drinking cokes in the feed zone, so your root Beer is proof you are an animal just like the pros. :)

My tennis game gets bragging rights this weekend. Haven’t picked up a racket in forever and I was hitting winner after winner on my Hubs…….it was awesome and felt sooooooooooooooooooooo good. Then we came home and spontaneously decided to make breakfast for dinner together. Fun times.

I can brag that I added weight to almost every muscle group in BodyPUMP today-woot.

Reply

Girl, that is HARD CORE!!! Pump is no joke, especially when you add weight to EVERY track!! Way to go…you are ripped!

I think a lot of professional/elite cyclists actually drink flat cokes during their rides (caffeine+sugar), so not a bad choice! And congrats, btw :)

Reply

That makes me feel a lot better, thanks Liz!

YES! My boss from the gym is a marathoner. She always goes to 7-11 for a “Diet Coke the size of my head” after her long runs!

Congrats on 70 miles! I have a road bike I bought off my friend…now I just need to get air in the tires!!

Congrats on the distance PR! It was a beautiful day for a bike ride in Chicago! I spent my labor day setting a distance PR of my own…a 16.2 mile run. Enjoy your peaches…you should def throw a few of them on the grill.

Things I’m proud of: remembering to actually get my lunch out of the fridge at home to bring it to work!!! Yes, it’s a small achievement, but after forgetting for the past 5 days, it’s one I’m VERY pleased about! hahah

Reply

Ha, I hate when I forget my lunch so YES that is a huge accomplishment:)

Reply

Nice work! I was at a trail run today and they had coke on the course, so I dont think the root beer was a bad idea at all.
I ran a 1/2 marathon and set an 8min course PR. I am actually starting to love hills!

Reply

Thanks Ida….good to know that my root beer craving was not a bad idea;) EIGHT MINUTE COURSE PR…you are absolutely amazing!!

A helmet looks good on you ;)

CHRISTINA….you are incredible.That is so so speedy!

I was able to run 40 miles this week. It’s my longest weekly distance since developing plantar fasciitis almost 8 years ago. So proud!

Reply

DANG ROSA!!! You are incredible!! WHAT…your plantar lasted 8 years!?!?!

Reply

I’ve run on and off in that time, but since I’m impatient, I would end up re-injuring it because I would increase my mileage or speed to quickly. Darn owies!

Reply

Nice job on the 70 miles girl! I ran a 10K race today, that’s what I’m proud of :)

Reply

oh my goodness what a great way to spend the day! :) awesome job! :)

You’re awesome! 70 miles is no joke! I didn’t ride at all today, but I did WATCH a bike race. It’s totally the same thing. :)

I did a speed workout (10x400m) and then watched my hubby in a cyclocross race. Not super exciting, but it was a great day!

Reply

WOW! 70!! I am so proud!!! I did nothing I was proud of this weekend. Except eat some good eats and spend some qt with my husband! YAY!

Reply

You. RULE! Yep. You rule.

I’m proud of running in 95 degree heat this week. (Ugh.)

Reply

I spent my day working. I work in a call center for a large insurance company. I got very frustrated today when people would get mad at me because their agents had the day off for the Holiday. I wish I could have spent the day riding bikes with you!

Reply

Awesome job on the 70 miles! You are going to rock your Century! The furthest I have gone on a bike is 25 miles, and it was ugly.

I am proud that I ran 2 half-marathons this weekend! And that I ate an entire pizza by myself after the second one.

Reply

Hey girl! I’m so proud of you and your long ride here! Even if you are at McDonald’s. :) You’re too cute in that helmet. And something I’m proud of is being an awesome mom today with my girls and making their last day of summer break a memorable one. shopping, girl talk and fun stuff!

Thank you so much Lilly, I didn’t get any ice cream yesterday but I will make up for that today:)

You are such a rockstar! And root beer is obviously the newest and coolest recovery drink, haven’t you heard? :)

I’m proud of running 8 miles yesterday – it doesn’t look so impressive next to all the marathoners, but it was my first 8 mile run ever! I’m also proud of getting through 40 minutes of yoga today because whew boy, are my legs sore!

Reply

Um, Jessica YOU ARE A ROCKSTAR!! 8 miles is a long way!!! Seriously, congrats on the running and the yoga.

Reply

Are you training to be the female Lance Armstrong?? CHECK YOU OUT ;)!

Reply

I cannot believe you did 70 miles in one ride. That makes my brain, my legs, and most especially my butt hurt just to think about. YOU ARE AWESOME! And after all that you could still look that gorgeous sipping on rootbeer like it aint no thang. Impressive.
I want root beer.

Reply

Awesome job!! I can’t believe you rode 70 mi!! :hail:

I ran a half marathon, without a Garmin….and I ran CONSISTENTLY, never got in my own head or negative, and I ran it in 1:43:18. Woop! I am still riding high from Sunday’s race and so excited to start fall training.
