2023 week 7: feeling better

Last week I started to feel better and was so grateful for it! I am officially off of antibiotics, I’m noticing my resting heart rate returning to normal, and I have more energy. #sograteful

“Being sick is your body’s way of saying you’re way too awesome, and you need to slow down, so everyone else can catch up.”


Swim highlights: 6575 yards

I was so glad to be back in the water after 2 weeks off!

Awww yeah!! It felt so good to be back in the water after 2 weeks away!

Bike highlights: 88.5 miles + 11:29:38 hours in February

I got some good mileage in last week, but am still a bit behind on cycling 28 hours in February. We will see how this week shakes out and just how close I can get to achieving my goal.

So grateful to be back on the bike, feeling better, and for these ladies to ride with

Run fun: 7.46 miles

Monday I got to run outside in SHORTS in FEBRUARY in IOWA…WHAT?! Oh yeah!! Don’t worry…by Thursday we were back to real Iowa winters.

Grateful for:
πŸ’™ shorts weather in February in Iowa
πŸ’™ antibiotics and finally feeling healthy again
πŸ’™ sunshine + fresh air
πŸ’™ the therapy I get from pounding the pavement

Snowshoe adventures: 0 miles

The small amount of snow we got on Thursday quickly melted with the sunshine + warmer temps we had over the weekend.

Weekly Totals: 10 hours & 59 minutes

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

30 minutes of yoga

Attitude of Gratitude:

This little snuggle bug 🐢πŸ₯°
Sushi!!! It has been far to long since we last had sushi for dinner!!
I think I saw more kites in one place today at the kite festival on Clear Lake than the cumulative number of kites I’ve seen in my entire lifetime. πŸͺ It was a beautiful winters day to venture out and experience something new! πŸ’™
