What a great week!! While I don’t like losing an hour of my day this time of year, I do like having more daylight hours in the evening…a sign that spring really is just around the corner!!
AM: 1 hour strength training session…
PM: Trainer Ride…3×9 minute Over/Under Intervals…This was my #FaveWorkout this week!
I was suppose to get up early and swim, BUT…that didn’t happen, SO…
After work, I got some #swimlove and #runlove back to back…I’m so ready to start exercising outdoors in warmer weather!!
AM: Zone 2 #bikelove
PM: Make-up Parent Teacher Conferences from last week…we got more snow tonight too 😦
One more cold day before nice weather is suppose to bless us…
I followed this up with an amazing recovery smoothie…Osmo Nutrition and Pure Clean Beet Powder are the perfect addition to any smoothie!!
PM: #bikelove #intervals followed up by TRX class…this is quickly becoming one of my favorite workout combinations!!
A swim was on the schedule for after work today, BUT…it was 52F and sunny outside. Since I’ve been cooped up most of the winter, I decided it was time to lace up the running shoes and do Saturday morning’s run on Friday afternoon. I can swim tomorrow. Fresh air, sunshine, warmer temperatures, friends, what more could a girl ask for?!?!?! Basil also needed some exercise…we were both so happy to get back outside!!
I slept in Saturday morning and decided to swim Saturday afternoon. I had the whole pool to myself after family swim time was over. I followed this up with some core work…everyday I notice I get a bit stronger in this department 😉 #progress
Sole Sista Time after my workouts…
1st brick of 2015 is in the books!! 3 hour ride and 20 minute run…BAM!! It felt AWESOME 🙂 I love running off the bike when my legs are all warmed up!! The best part…I could have run harder 🙂
Swim: 4500 yards
Bike: 82.5 miles
Run: 25.6 miles
Strength Training: 2:10:00
Total Duration: 13:41:00
Only one more week to get through and then it is spring break week. As a teacher, this is my 2nd favorite part of the year…it takes runner up to summer vacation 😉 I am definitely looking forward to a week off and time to regroup before the last big push to the finish line of the school year. I don’t have any big plans, but working out, relaxing and spending time with friends will be my top priorities 🙂
How was your week? Are you going to get to enjoy “spring break” sometime soon? If so, do you have big plans?

Way to crush your first brick of the season!!!
It totally feels like spring here; perfect timing for me to start walking to prepare for when I can run and bike again 🙂
Thanks Abby! How much longer before you can ease back into the running and cycling? I’m sure Jasper is growing like a weed 🙂
I loved that you mixed up your plan to get in a run outside! Way to enjoy the sunshine!! I also took advantage of warmer temps this past weekend and got out on the bike for a 35-mile ride. It was great being out! My body definitely has to adjust to the time change but I love having extra day light in the evenings and am totally ready for spring!
Thanks Lee!! It is so nice to start getting outside in nicer weather again!! I love the 4 seasons, but I’m ready for winter to go to rest and spring to pop 😉
Great week!! I am so glad that you could get outside and enjoy some awesome weather!! Sounds like your brick went awesome! Sometimes the first one of the season is rough!! 😉
My week was good. I have 2 weeks until my big build starts for Victoria!!
Thanks Leslie! I’ve always loved running off the bike, so bricks usually aren’t an issue for me.
Only 2 weeks?!?!?! Where does time go?!?!?!?!
I like bricks too!! 🙂 #crazypeople

You are crushing your workouts!! I am so glad it is warming up…energizing for sure and keep up the core work! 🙂

Cheers to spring-like weather and brick workouts! Way to get the work done and finish another solid week of training. Look good, girlfriend!
Thanks Kristen! It feels so good to get outside and exercise in warmer weather and sunshine! I can’t believe one week ago it was -17F and tomorrow it should be 74F. I’m already looking forward to exercising outside tomorrow 🙂
