Week 2: FAIL!

Okay, here we go.
Accountability week 2.

What I was supposed to do:        What I did: 
Rest Day

Yay! I did what I was supposed to do.
Easy Jog

Truthfully I didn't really rest on Monday. I flew to Kentucky to
begin shooting our first TV pilot. We woke at 7:00 each morning
and shot until around 5:30 pm, went back to our host/stars' house
and downloaded footage. Had dinner with Gwen and Tommy
(Gwen cooked us dinner EVERY NIGHT!) and then went back
upstairs and worked until about 1:00 am. 
Bike - 45 minutes 

Another long day of shooting. I got interviewed by the local paper
and the reporter posted a nice pic of my big ass but all in all it was
pretty exciting. In the afternoon we shot them loading up the
trucks for TN. In hindsight I could have helped for a little cardio.
While Tuesday at least entailed running around the compound
with the camera, Wednesday included a lot of time with the
camera locked down on a tripod.
The best shot from my self portrait session
while filming the trucks being loaded.

Rest Day

I sprinted to Kiana to change the aperture on the camera she was
manning then I ran back down the street and up a hill to hide
behind a sign to shoot the trucks rolling out. And I was supposed
to rest today. Bonus points!
Easy Swim
Endurance Based

I spent 2 hours on a time lapse shot of clouds rolling past the TN
RockyTop store. It was 21 degrees outside. You burn more
calories in the cold, right? Then we flew home. 
Easy Jog

I got home at 1:00 am and printed cards out until 3:00 am. I
slept from 3:00 to 7:00 then punched holes in the cards and tied
them to 170 DVDs with elastic silver cord. I delivered them 12
minutes late to the company that's putting the gift bags together
for the GRAMMY Nominees.

Jennifer landed and we had a quick business lunch then motored
out to Huntington Beach to the race expo to get our bibs for

My one man assembly line. 

Race Day!

I "ran" the Surf City Half Marathon. I haven't done a real long
run since September so needless to say I was woefully under-
trained. I wore my GoPro camera but am still having battery
issues. I think I'll try to do my race recap as a video.

Abbey and I lounging post run with our surfboard bling.

I really really need some exercises I can do anytime, anywhere. Like even if I'm in a jail cell. Although hopefully I'll never be in a jail cell.

I have exactly 90 days until the Knoxville triathlon. Gak!

  2. I think that the GoPro camera on your head also counts as bonus strength training.
