Week in Review; 7/26-8/1
(Yes, I realize I am posting this on a Saturday, however I am racing tomorrow therefore I can include the race into my week in review since a full report will follow. Oh, and because it is my blog and I do what I want 🙂 )
Monday: Rode for 9.5 miles after work. Pleasantly surprised at how good my legs felt after the weekend!
Tuesday: 800 meters in the pool. 100 warm-up, 200 meter kick set, 500 meter free swim. Really strong swim but had to cut it short because I was running late that morning.
Wednesday: PT active dynamics and 45 minutes lifting in the morning and then 2.5 mile run after work- super hot! Last short run before half-marathon training officially begins.
Thursday: Planned rest day.
Friday: Rest day- not planned…just started off lazy and then was out all day. I had plans at night so I never quite got it together for a workout.
Saturday: Did not want to go into a race day with three days off but also did not want to push it right before a race. Therefore, I opted to take a leisure bike ride with mom down by the river and around town. Ended up being about 5 miles and even though it wasn’t anything hardcore, it got my legs spinning.
Sunday: Belmar Sprint Tri. Race report to follow!
Weekly High: I signed a lease on a new place 🙂 WOO HOO!!!!
Weekly Low: Lets face it, my workouts this week were less than stellar. I won’t even lie…weeks like this, I am embarrassed to even post a review!
Three things I am grateful for this week:
- All of you 🙂 Your wonderful comments on my Full Disclosure post mean more than you know!
- My PT- even though I no longer go to her on the regular, she offered to tape me for last weeks race and is always there for me when I have questions and/or concerns.
- Friends- I had a good friend really come through for me this week…I am forever thankful.
