Highlight of the Week: Ending the week by completely KILLING my long run with Bobbi! We started out at a fast long run clip (for us) and never let down. It left me feeling really confident, especially since I’ve been having fueling issues lately.

- Brian, the trainer who owns Essential Fitness LLC (where I train…) started a Multisport Club this year! Of course, I joined. Besides having seminars and sponsors with discounts and all that, the club also offers some fun classes. This Saturday was my first cycling class! It kicked my butt… in a good way. Brian put a real slick on my back wheel, so I still don’t have my blue tires on. Maybe when I take the bike back outdoors. Ha ha.
- Last Saturday, and this Tuesday, after taking a GU, I felt my last meal in my chest. I am not sure if that is heart burn, but it didn’t feel good. I tried a fig newton on Sunday’s run, and that worked a bit better (despite barfing a bit up in to my mouth in the last mile). I hope the issues is dependent on what I eat before the run and not during. It would be awful if it was the GUs! I just bought two cases!!! Ha ha.
