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!
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!
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!
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?!
