2022 week 24: play

Last week it was great to focus on recovery, dog snuggles, play, and do what I wanted when I wanted. The freedom of not being tied to a workout schedule was amazing…for a while and then I started to get antsy. 😜

Quote of the week:

“Play is our brain’s favorite way of learning.”

~Diane Ackerman

Swim highlights: 2679 yards

I went to the pool a few times this last week with no structured workout. It was freeing and so much fun! Getting to play with friends was icing on the cake!

YAY for play time with Tim and our friend Courtney! πŸ₯°

Bike highlights: 0 miles

There was no bike love last week and to be honest, I really missed riding. I would love to get outside and ride this week, but we went from a super cold spring to a stifling hot summer (it currently feels like 104F outside right now as I type) and I’m just not quite ready to ride outside in this extreme heat after IMDSM. We’ll see if we get a break in the temps so I can squeeze in some outdoor miles

Run highlights: 0 miles

There was no run love last week and there won’t be any this week. I have committed to myself no running for 2 weeks post IM as that will give my body a break from the pounding before starting the next training cycle.

SUP: 2.46 miles

Getting to spend time on the water is one of my absolute FAVORITE places to be!

Play time! We love the water! πŸ₯°

Water Walking in the Lazy River: 1.0 miles

Sunday we went to the lazy river and walked both with the current and against it. It was nice to be outside getting exercise in the water and doing something other than swimming. We drug our neighbor with us and we are all so glad we went!

YAY for water walking, vitamin D, fresh air, and amazing company!

Strength Training: 15 minutes of core strength daily except Monday

Weekly Totals: 4 hours & 31 minutes

Attitude of Gratitude: What were your highlights from week 24 of 2022?!

Thank you Nick with Vitality Massage Ames for flushing out all of the IMDSM fatigue and soreness.
I am still Covid negative! I have tested 4 times in 10 days and am grateful to be healthy! πŸ₯°
