It’s Not Easy Being Green

When I complete a workout and enter my data into my Training Peaks account, it shows up green (or yellow if I go over or under by a significant time difference compared to what was planned).  If I miss a workout, it remains red.  I have been in quite a funk lately with my training…since July to be exact.  The last time I had an entire week that showed up green in Training Peaks was the week of July 22-28, 2013…19 weeks has gone by since then, so apparently Kermit the Frog was right when he sang the song, “It’s not easy being green.”

This last week I set a goal of completing every scheduled workout…through pure determination and some creative adjustments to my schedule, I completed that goal 🙂

  1. Awesome week! Love that swimsuit, too… splish? And, TRX is on my to-learn list; we have it in the gym at work, but I just haven’t done it (yet). Here’s to many more weeks of green! Have a great Monday!

    1. Thanks Erin…I much prefer green!! I teach TRX on Thursday evenings and LOVE IT!! I’m not sure on the brand of my swim suit. I get them from the grab bag at the link below for much cheaper (no point in spending a bunch of money on something the chlorine will just eat away). Sometimes they are TYR, Speedo, or other brands. Just depends. Have a great week!!
