PureFit, Brick Workout!

I'm pretty sure PureFit helped my run during my brick workout!

PureFit sent me some protein bars to try and they are pretty AMAZING!  I have tried 2-flavors, Peanut Butter and Almond Crunch and they are so good.  The Almond Crunch is my fave so far!  It reminds me of an ALMOND COOKIE, yes, I said COOKIE!

My stomach is very sensitive when it comes to eating and exercising!  I ate a little bit right before I got on the bike trainer to see how I would handle it!  I rode for 35-minutes on the bike trainer and was totally fine!  Got ready for my run and was worried since my legs only handled a mile during my last brick workout, but was so surprised that my legs had no problems for this run!  I felt great and ran a 5k to finish the brick workout!

I'm sure it was the PureFit bars that did it!  I'm also wondering if the trainer is easier than biking outside?  What do you think?

I would like to say it's all my strength I have gained in the last two-weeks, but I'm not sure that is it?  Either way it gave me a great deal of confidence that I can indeed enjoy a RUN after a BIKE ride!  I felt a lot better about my choice to focus on triathlons this time around.  In fact, during my run in the exact same place where last time I had wondered why on earth I was even considering doing an Olympic this summer...this time I was thinking it's time to register for that race!

Don't you love when a workout surprises you?  It's such a confidence booster!

Hi, Jill! I saw you on my blog. I love running and all that crap too. It's such a stress reliever. Anyway, I think you should skip the Olympic and just sign up for the Boise half Ironman! ;) And now I'm going to try a PureFit.
