19 weeks ’til #IMLou – busy

Last week was busy. SO MUCH GOING ON…last days of school with kids (including posting grades), sitting in on interviews to hire a new colleague, celebrating the end of the 2017-2018 school year with colleagues/friends, cleaning out my classroom for summer school, helping a friend move, running lots of errands, having my twin nieces visit over the weekend, washing the dogs, cleaning bikes, and trying to fit in training where I could. Busy, busy, busy!! Unfortunately I didn’t get as much training in as I’d like, but I did what I could with what I had. Now it is time for RACE WEEEEEEKKKK…Ironman Wisconsin 70.3 is a week away!!

Swim: 0 yards

I’m so bummed I missed swimming this week. My busy week took over and swimming just didn’t happen. 😦

Bike: 10.8 miles

Started my last Tuesday with students this morning off right!! Z3/Z4 intervals for breakfast!!

Run: 7 miles

Today was a double run day. This morning’s run was HOT AF!!
“When you’re going through hell, keep going!” ~Winston Churchill
PM run was also HOT AF!!

Strength Training: 30 minutes + 10 minutes of core strength/stretching 5 days this week

Weekly Totals: 3 hours & 1 minute (so bummed these numbers weren’t higher, but I have the summer to train like a professional triathlete!)

Quote of the Week:

“It’s all about finding the calm in the chaos.” ~Donna Karan

Attitude of Gratitude:

Normatec recovery boots + Spotted Cow is the perfect way to round out a CRAZY day at work!!
SUSHI!! What a great way to celebrate the completion of the work week!
Grateful to have these two monkeys come and visit us this weekend! Life is always better with ice cream!!
A clean bike is a fast bike!! Ready to roll into RACE WEEEEEEEEKKKK!!
