Those of you who follow me on Facebook probably know what the title means. Before you think I’m crazy, let me explain. On Facebook this week, I saw a T-shirt that really caught my attention and I though it was pretty funny. The T-shirt Read:
French people are so hard core they eat pain for breakfast.
If you know any french, you’d know that “pain” is french for bread! Ha, maybe it’s because I am french and though it hilarious, but I had to share! In fact, I just might use it if I get more branded shirts or tanks made!
Another T-shirt I saw on a post on Facebook was of a man and woman. They were celebrating the woman’s finish to a marathon and the man’s shirt said:
I survived my wife’s marathon training.
This made me reflect about my husband’s support. Since we have a toddler at home, without his full support on this, it would be very difficult for me to do all this training. Staying physically fit is as important to him as it is to me. I do workout at lunch during the work week because it’s less disruptive to our family life. However, I do my swimming on Monday nights and then usually try to get a long run in on the weekends. So, I am a lucky girl and I want to thank my husband for all his support!
As usual, I’m linking up with The Fitness Cheerleader and Running Rachel for #MotivateMe Monday because we all need some motivation to keep going. Ever since I set my triathlon goals and now I’m wondering if I’m ready for a 1/2 marathon in 2016 as well, I’m feeling pretty pumped to workout.Link up with @fitcheerldr & @RunningRachel for #MotivateMe Monday if you need some motivation!

Last week my training looked like this:
Monday: 1 hour endurance swim (I’m definitely improving on my technique)
Tuesday: 5 km lunch time run
Wednesday: 20 min stationary bike
Thursday Friday: 30 min total body workout with the bosu ball, medicine ball and kettle bells.
Saturday or Sunday: 7 km run
This week, I’m hoping to accomplish:
Monday: 1 hour endurance swim
Tuesday: 5 km run at lunch (#runch)
Wednesday: 25 min stationary bike & other exercises
Thursday: Weights/total body workout
Saturday or Sunday: 8 km run (I’m trying to increase my millage to 10 km and beyond!)
How about you? How is your week shaping out? Have you set any goals this week?
