Week in Review; 8/2-8/8
Monday: 4 mile power-walk after work. I really wanted to run but planned to walk anyway because my legs were still quite sore from Belmar.
Tuesday: Headed to the gym in the morning for a 45 minute lift session (arms, abs) and then went for a 6.3 mile bike ride around town after work.
Wednesday: 1000 meter swim before work. For like the third week in a row, I could not get it together to get out of the house on time! Still managed a good swim for being short on time; 100 warm up, 200 kickset, 400 free, 200 buoy, 100 cool down.
Thursday: Planned rest day.
Friday: 3 mile run, although close to a mile was probably walking. I took a little outdoor tour of my new neighborhood so I went back and forth from running to walking as I explored the area. So pretty- three lakes, quite shaded streets…I am going to LOVE running around!
Saturday: Planned rest day.
Sunday: Steelman Tri- I was the swimmer for a Oly relay. 1550 meter swim. Did I PR? If you are on my FB you already know, but if not…guess you’ll have to wait for the race report 🙂 After a post-race nap I headed out for a bike ride. Did a few leisure miles with mom and then took off on my own. Total of 10 miles. Good ride.
Weekly High: I spent Friday at the pool. Score one for Fridays off, laying poolside…sweet summertime!
Weekly Low: Half-marathon was supposed to start…clearly that did not happen. Must happen this week!!!!
Three things I am grateful for this week:
- SPF! Seriously, those hours spent at the pool…I am SO BURNT (just on my stomach…off) and I wore sunscreen! Thank God I did too because I don’t even want to know what I would look like without having worn any!
- People who want to do relays with me. Let’s face it, I am not the fastest racer…the fact that my teammates are into having a good time, with winning of non-importance, is so nice. I love relays!
- One more month of summer…it is going to fast but at least I still have 3.5 weeks until the kids come back!
