CSA week 2 & training plans

Check out the contents of my CSA bag this week.





Is it weird that I am so excited over vegetables? I even got fresh eggs this week from my personal farmer!





Sadly, my assigned food item for the tennis match suffered because I had to rush to pick up my bag. Good thing they don't take points off for presentation!





Sad but they ate it... :)

I have been trying to work out a triathlon plan for an Olympic tri in August. My work really gets in the way of training the way I would like! As always, I have too many interests and not enough time. Since my bike skills are lacking I think that needs to be a big part of my plan. I will also be building for the Chickamauga marathon beginning in mid-July so long runs are a component as well. It is starting to look like a two a day once a week is inevitable. How do the average workerbees with a penchant for endurance sports find the time???

Good questions about the training and work. Since I am a university prof my weekly schedule is such that I get time to do what I need, so I can't be of much help. Gosh that food looks so bright and healthy! Cheers!

The food looks delicious.

On your question: I don't have a clue. Getting up early? Tell us your answer when you found it.

What's CSA?

Have a great week.

I had fun catching up with you and your blog and I enjoyed your tri story, so sorry it wasn't what you wanted it to be but you finished!
Your veggies look yummy!

I shop daily just so I can have the freshest ingredients. ;)
"Working people" start their days *extremely* early, from what I understand.

My solution: swimming and running before going to work. No problem if sometimes I arrive a little bit late.

If you find a better way to handle the scheduling please update the blog with it! Scheduling is a pain in the ***!

your CSA bag looks fantastic! I went to the farmers market today and could have bought a TON more than i did, but I wouldn't have been able to carry it all!

i do think it's tough sometimes to train how you really want when you have a full time job. I always workout and run in the morning cause it wakes me up and I know there's less time later in the day.

Yes, it is weird to get excited about vegetables. At least in my world it is.

I enjoyed your tri race report. Bike issues...I've wrecked on my bike way too many times. When we figure it out we'll have to share with each other.

It is tough working in all of the workouts. I get most of my training done in the early morning, but I do have a couple of two a days.
