Excited to be back in on the Weekly Wrap with Tricia & HoHo this week! Since it is Spring Break week, I was a little off my regular schedule but still managed to get almost all of my workouts in. Let’s see how it went down this week.
A gorgeous spring day called for a nice bike + run brick. Got in 45 min on the bike and then a 4 mile run. Happy to report it did not suck as much as I had imagined. Always helps when a friend meets you for the run part.
My cooking for Passover dinner with my family took longer than I thought. Missed my short swim day today and did an hour of elliptical at home and some resistance band fun instead. Did make a killer ratatouille dish though 🙂
30 min elliptical + 90 min of kickboxing and weights. Major sweat fest and one of my favorite workouts of the week. No photo-oops! Met a friend at the mall for a little power shopping and new spring clothes. A girl cannot live in workout clothes alone. Or can she?
I had a crazy day! Feeling pretty good after another bike run brick. Did a 30 min ride and an almost 5 mile run with my group. We were only planning on running 3 but we got to chatting and well you know how that goes. I am really working on trying to keep a decent pace after the bike. Seeing some progress but it’s always tough.
So here’s the crazy part! I was in the shower and the lights started flickering. I then heard the transformer blow outside. Not that unusual but I thought it wasn’t a great idea to be in the shower. I hopped out and threw on some clothes. Headed outside to see what was going on and I noticed a small fire behind our house where the power company has a small sub station. I called 911 and seriously those guys were here in under 2 minutes. They quickly put it out and I don’t think we were ever in any danger. I’ve never seen anything like that happen. Did I mention how attractive the firemen were?
We were out of power for a few hours while they fixed the damage. So I was stuck with air drying my hair LOl. Normally would not be a big deal but I had plans with my mom and sisters for a session at a Painting Bar. We decided it would be a fun thing to do with my mom for her birthday. She loved it!
I had a chance to volunteer coach some newbie swimmers before my own swim class. Tough 2100m with lots of drills and sprints.
4th times a charm! Hanging with my new bike crew for some hills for breakfast. I am feeling so much more confident out there this week. It’s great to feel progress. Ended the day with a fabulous massage and then some meal prepping. Whew busy Weekly Wrap Spring Break Edition!
Don’t miss my delicious Meatless Monday tomorrow- Tex Mex Brown Rice Salad with a jalapeno dressing.
