It is hard to believe that 2016 is behind us and 2017 has arrived!! CRAZY how time flies!! My last week of 2016 was busy…it always amazes me how I manage to completely fill my free time when I am on break!
Swim: 10,000 yards
The Coeur Sports ambassadors have set the #coeurcenturyswim challenge to complete before the end of 2016. The 100 x 100 yards/meters could be done all in one swim, or broken up over the course of a week. After proposing this idea to Coach Kelly, she thought it would be best to complete this challenge over the course of a week to prevent damage to my rotator cuffs since I am have not built up to this distance gradually over time. Coach put three structured workouts in for me to complete this challenge and by Friday morning, I had completed 100 x 100 yards for the week!
Bike: 70.6 miles
This week I had some z5 bike interval workouts and some easy recovery rides. I’m looking forward to a power test next week to see what kind of progress I’ve been making 😉 #courageovercomfort is definitely where it’s at to get stronger on the bike!
Run: 18.8 miles
I had some short easy runs, a track workout with 800 repeats, and a longer progression run this week. It was nice to get outside for every single run this week!! I was very grateful for warmer temperatures 😉
Strength Training: 1 hour + 55 minutes
I had some great strength training sessions throughout the week! Strength training is a MUST for me to remain injury-free and healthy! I’m grateful that Mya decided to help me during one of my strength sessions!
I had to have a cyst at the base of my finger drained of fluid on Wednesday. Have you ever tried to swim with numb fingers?! Such a WEIRD feeling!!
I decided on my “power word” for 2017…
I often hold myself back in multiple avenues of my life and it is time to become more #fearless in 2017!! What better way to start working toward being #fearless than to go to a climbing facility. Most people wouldn’t consider a climbing wall a challenge, but when you have a fear of heights, climbing the wall and then having to let go and trust the automatic belay takes a lot of courage!! I actually went rock climbing twice this week!!
Weekly Totals: 14 hours & 9 minutes + 10 minutes of core each day
