Last week had a theme of “just one more” and was the last week of school with students for the year! Hello summer!
Swim: 6100 yards
Wednesday’s swim = BOOM! I nailed it!
Thursday’s endurance swim was full of quiet + happy!
Bike: 130 miles
Last week started with a RIDICULOUSLY windy, long, solo bike ride (after doing something very similar the day before, it was tough physically, but even more tough mentally. With sustained winds over 20 mph and gusts close to 30 mph, this was a HUGE confidence builder! Just one more…mile!
Since I only had to work until noon on Friday, I rode my 2nd longer bike ride of the week Friday afternoon. It was a great day to be outside on two wheels!
Run: 29.3 miles
Last week also started with a tough run off the bike. The wind was brutal!
Wednesday started with another long run before work! I’m really lovin’ the long run mid week!
Saturday was a short EASY run! Hot + humid = Midwest summer is here!
Sunday I had a double run day…this was a first for me! Until now, I’ve never done a longer run that was split into a morning run and an afternoon run. I ran in the morning with my main squeeze, and then ran in the heat of the day. Hello summer! Our morning run = hot + humid! My afternoon run was very hot, but the humidity had dropped and thankfully didn’t feel nearly as oppressive as the morning run especially since I had intervals during this run…just one more!
Strength Training: 45 minutes + 10 minutes of core strength daily
Weekly Totals: 16 hours & 12 minutes
I started the week with a TOUGH brick (thank you Mother Nature) and was so happy to have that workout done! #trackcatstrong
The kids are done with school and I only have one day left! Summer is ALMOST here! Whoop! Whoop! One of my students made our girls some homemade rope toys as a “thank you” and they LOVE them!
I had a massage between my two runs on Sunday! Thanks to Nick at Vitality Massage for taking such good care of us!
