I successfully completed all workouts this week, but was very tired…not the tired from working out either. Here is how my week unfolded…
Monday morning I completed an hour of strength training…
After work I came home to a Barnana delivery…A-MAZ-ING!! This will be perfect training fuel.
I also completed my #FaveWorkout of the week…#bikelove and #intervals…nothing better 😉
I started the day with an early morning run…boy did my legs feel like lead after last night’s #bikelove #intervals. It was a good thing that this was an easy endurance run.
After work, I jumped in the pool for some #swimlove.
We did fartleks on the bike to start the day..everyone that rode with us picked a different duration (between 1 and 5 minutes) to incorporate some Z4/Z5 work. It was fun to have variety in the workout and not know what was coming next 😉
After work, I went to the pool for some #swimlove before babysitting for some friends for a couple of hours.
I started my day with some #runlove…HOLY #intervals. These were tough!! I tapped into TRJ’s energy…#gonetoosoon
After work, I went to the dentist…clean teeth and no cavities 😉 I followed this up with TRX, which was a great full body workout. I incorporated all of the exercises that each of my participants don’t like while we are doing them, but appreciate when we are done. That made for good variety and some challenging moves 😉
I had the day off from work, so I could meet with my doctor regarding my hypothyroidism diagnosis and to determine what would come next. Before I went to the doctor, I got the oil changed in my car and cleaned up the house a bit. I will have more to post about my diagnosis and the decisions that were made later this week. After my doctor appointment, I had lunch with a friend, took a short nap, and went for a massage…OUCH!!
We met some friends for dinner…I LOVE SUSHI!! YUMMY 🙂
We rose early in the morning for a 2 hour run, but the windchills were WELL below 0F, so we opted for the treadmill. 13 miles later, I was ready for some core strength exercises, which we followed up with some VERY tasty breakfast.
After cleaning up, we ventured down to Ankeny and Des Moines for a few items…
5 friends loaded up in our vehicle at 6:30 am and drove to Waverly for a swim clinic from 9 am to 1 pm, so we didn’t get our long Sunday morning bike workout in. We postponed that for today after work.
The swim clinic was great!! I learned what I am doing well and what I have to work on to be more efficient in the water…boy do I have some work to do 😉
