Everyday I’m Shuffling…

Getting the new year started right. Already did my new FTP last week. Felt rested, so I went at it again today for another 2X20′.

Not a bad start…it definitely hurt today.Speaking of hurt, the knee seems a little better today. Going to stay on the bike tomorrow and hopefully that will give it enough time.

It might also help if I finally replaced my Newton Gravity’s. The number of race porta potties alone that my current pair have endured is enough of a reason to ditch em, let alone the miles. As it so happens, Trisports.com has a nice sale on them as we speak. 130 bucks versus 170! Yes please!

Weight wise, I’m starting the year off at 141. I was 137ish at Arizona. To help keep things where they need to be during the lower volume of the off season, I started using the Lose It service. It has a cool app for both iPhone and Android that lets me keep track of my calories and balance things out with workouts. It really puts things in perspective: a bottle of champagne is about 1400 calories!!! If you need some help shedding some pounds safely, I recommend checking it out. Don’t forget though; you actually have to use it to make it work. Good luck!

  1. Innnteresting. I have MyDietTracker for [obviously] tracking purposes… I like the graphs it makes. đŸ™‚ What are your other top training (or otherwise) apps?

    • Hey Erika,
      Im just getting started with the apps honestly. The only other ones I have found useful are some stopwatch apps for the trainer. Nice to watch the big hand go around sometimes.

      Three days in and loving the lose it app. The only downside is that I’m still starving!
