2023 week 5: ready, set, STOP

Last week I was SO ready to set myself up for a successful week! I knocked out a solid day on Monday and then…I woke up Tuesday with a sore throat and could hardly swallow. I missed 3 days of work, and lots of training, BUT I tested negative for strep + covid. Thankfully I’m feeling better and bouncing back even if I still sound like death.

“ready, set, STOP”

Swim highlights: 3200 yards

Monday morning was my only swim of the week. It started a bit rocky as the chlorine levels were low, so they had to shock the pool before we could swim. This meant we had to wait a bit before getting in the water (and yes, I questioned whether shocking the pool with excess chlorine could have caused me to get sick, but there is no way to test this until the next time this situation happens).

I could have stayed in bed for a bit longer…

Bike highlights: 65.9 miles + 36,388 feet of total elevation gained in January

The goal for February is to ride 28 hours in 28 days. Thanks to starting the year off sick, I’m a little behind, but I am not worried. We are just getting started!

Run fun: 4.4 miles

I completed one run before the crud took me out. I have just over 5 weeks until my first race of 2023, so it’s time to get those run legs moving.

Snowshoe adventures: 0 miles

Sadly our snow is shrinking. The temps are climbing and melting all of our snow. I am not quite ready for winter to be over, so if we could get another massive snowfall before March, I’m all for it!

Weekly Totals: 7 hours & 17 minutes

15 minutes of core strength daily
30 minutes of full body strength

Attitude of Gratitude:

Mom, can I help you do strength training? 🐢πŸ₯°
Sundogs πŸ₯°
Monday massage + snuggle time! πŸ’™πŸΆπŸ₯°
These two have bonded so much more after losing their sister last month.🐢πŸ₯°
This 1000 piece puzzle looks a bit different than the picture on the box.
All the snuggles while I was sick.
I had to do something with my brain while sick, so…I completed this 750 piece puzzle in one day.
Hibernation mode activated with these cold temps! πŸ’™πŸΆπŸ₯°

What are you highlights from week 5 of 2023?

  1. I’m glad that you didn’t get covid! I was down for over a week in January with a nasty ear infection that caused headaches and light sensitivity-not fun. I kept up with my good eating and mediation, but exercise had to take a backseat. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that we both stay healthy for the rest of the winter πŸ™‚

    1. I’m glad that you’re feeling better and kept the healthy eating + meditation on a roll. Cheers to staying healthy for the rest of the winter! πŸ’™
