Have y’all heard of LAVA? It’s a magazine for “serious triathlon,” clearly they sent it to me by mistake – har har. I was glued to the articles, the inner athlete in me was totally drooling. An inside article, “To Topple a Queen” profiled two bad-ass females prepping for the Ford Ironman World Championship. Something one of the profiled women, Julie Dibens, said struck my core.
“Racing is what motivates me to get out the door. It helps break my season into blocks. There is no way I could just race once in March and then once in October. That’s too big of a training block to wrap my head around.”
That’s where I am sitting right now. Granted I am
absofrigginlutely surely no pro, I want a goal. Heading in to the darker, cooler season not sure of my training. Crap, am I one of those people who is “goal oriented”!? I have been in training mode for weeks now with the sprint triathlon and the relay half Ironman. With nothing on the calendar, I’m finding it hard to figure out my training goals. I am playing around with a Runner’s World Smart Coach plan again, to keep me in tune. I am in serious need of some pep right now.
I should tell you that outside of running, I am also mildly obsessed with celebrities. Don’t judge. I love my E! Breaking News alerts I get via e-mail at 3 AM letting me know which rehab facility celebrity [fill in the blank] has checked into. Perez Hilton may not be the classiest of celebrity media, but check out his latest endeavor, Fit Perez. Dear Fit Celeb, I’d kind of take that as a snub.
He says this is based on his personal journey he’s been on for the past few years. I guess running around for celeb dirt has to be taxing. The site seems to filled with celebrities looking “fit” and health news. Not sure how I feel about it. Is the site going to end up like Fit Celeb but with the pictures featuring funny writing on them?
Anybody have a favorite celebrity workout? Suzanne’s Thigh Master, Jane Fonda’s Buns O Steel?
