Can you beat a bag of chips down a river? At home workout and some awesome shoes!

After hearing from the ortho that my foot wasn't broke, I have been planning my comeback to IRONMAN 70.3 training. That's right, We are like 80ish days away from TEAM TAGYOURIT hitting the water and streets of Augusta GA for a day of swimming, biking, running, and cheering! I'm so excited I cant stand it. I know Nicole and Laura have been running and biking up a storm lately. This foot thing has put me a little behind on training for the swim but I am not too worried about it. If a bag of potato chips can float down the river in the allotted time than I can for sure get down there...

Crazy huh? Nicole and Laura, I will just float down the river, make sure and pack my float and ice chest, LOL! JUST KIDDING! Oh and an alligator sighting???????? I'm from the Gulf Coast, they are in our backyards! Not worried:)

Right now while the doc has advised me not to go into the water for another week, mainly because I have a huge open gash on my foot, I have been just doing body weight exercises. Thankfully I know some great WODS to do at home from my awesome peeps over at Coastline Crossfit. If your local, go check them out (they are across from Sydney Phillips School on Sydney Phillips Dr.) My workout last night consisted of...
100 hand release pushups
100 tricep dips
100 air squats
100 full situps
100 bicep curls 30lbs!
5 3minute planks!
I also threw in a few scissor kicks for fun:)
Of course I had to take the after you workout selfie in my not yet remodeled bathroom, so enjoy...

Hello bicep! love it:) What I don't love is the O on my favorite Oakley sports bra my awesome friend Amanda gave to me is coming off:( #smallworldproblems! Carry on...

I was excited to get a pair of Mizuno Wave Kazan trail shoes in the mail yesterday. I am reviewing them as part of a FitFluential campaign. Even more excited that in a week my foot will hopefully be able to fit in this gorgeous shoe...

I always hated getting my new trail shoes dirty because they were always so pretty. These however, scream GET ME DIRTY! I LOVE the design on them and cant wait to test them out. Stay tuned for that review:)

Ill be headed back to the gym for cardio in the morning for the first time since Boston. I'm going to attempt the row machine for an hour. Hopefully my foot will hold up, until then I hope you guys have a great rest of the week and don't forget to enter my giveaway for a customized shirt from MyRaceRagz, they are AH-mazing! ENTER HERE!

Could you beat the bag of chips down the river?
What are your favorite trail shoes?
Ok go...


  1. LMFAO! Who would have thought a bag of chips could be athletic ;)

    1. Lol ikr! I'm so ready to float down it while eating potato chips; ) heehee

  2. ((LAUGHING))
    I have no idea but now I wanna try!

  3. Gives me hope I might could actually swim...NAH....floating and eating the chips sounds like a better idea:-)

    1. We can float together tied to a cooler tube with cocktails. Best ironman ever;)

  4. Ok that bag of chips thing just gave me new hope for my swim

  5. I couldnt race a rock down a river... LOL.

    I have raced in Mizuno Traile shoes before and they worked out well, they were the Cabrakan (which I'm not sure that they make anymore).

    Wishing you the best in recovery and on race day!

    1. Aw Thanks Pavey;) I need to runcation out in California soon;)

  6. Hmmm...maybe I could beat the bag of chips. Or eat them. I love the looks of the new Kazans! They are gorgeous. I hope the foot holds up!

  7. I do not know whether it's just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing issues with your site. It appears like some of the written text in your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a issue with my web browser because I've had this happen previously. Cheers
