Last week I was in survival mode. It was parent teacher conference week. I LOVE meeting and talking with parents about the progress their child(ren) is/are making, but with this comes INCREDIBLY LONG work days…3×13 hour work days + an additional 4 hours on the 4th day. With these long days, often comes a SERIOUS drop off in training…AKA forced recovery week. So here is what the week had in store for training:
Swim: 2300 yards
I finally got to swim on Saturday while visiting my parents. It was fun to swim in a new pool. I also crushed my interval time goals, which was a HUGE confidence booster! Later in the day, I enjoyed a few additional laps while playing with my twin nieces at the pool…sometimes I needed to do a quick 100 or two to warm back up!
Bike: 23.8 miles
I had a good ride on Monday with intervals + friend time, and finished out the week with an easy ride on Sunday after a 3 hour car ride home.
Run: 9.48 miles
I got a couple of short, but good runs in this week with my faves! Nothing fast or far, but they were cold + fun!
Strength Training: 30 minutes + 10 minutes core strength daily
I had one day of full body strength and that was on Monday after my bike intervals.
Weekly Totals: 4 hours & 46 minutes
We took a short trip home home to visit my parents, see my nieces, relax, and celebrate turning 40!
I got my Coeur Sports team kit in the mail this week and took pics on the FREEZING cold temps along the lake back home home! Love Okoboji!
