It’s a been a few weeks since I’ve joined the Weekly Wrap and I am excited to be back. Our weather this week, like much of yours I suspect, went from spring to summer and it was a scorcher. I do love summer but I enjoy having a few days or weeks to adapt to the crazy heat and humidity that comes along with it. Is that too much to ask?!
The Weekly Wrap Steam Bath Edition
I had a high volume week on tap in prep for my next tri Jne 4th. Here’s a quick snapshot of my week:
Our weekend was crazy busy with our anniversary (22 years!), Mother’s Day and my son’s 17th birthday. Whew!
Had a great mother’s day and rest day for me. My hubs and kids got the thousands of hints I dropped, and gave me the Garmin fenix in the rose gold. Ah! I am sure that is the key to faster runs don’t you think? We spent the morning having brunch with my parents and then celebrated my son’s birthday that night.
30 min elliptical
60 min strength training
40 min bike ride (it was so nice out couldn’t resist)
The heat starts to set in and I realize I need to carry water again now. Felt super strong on today’s run.
It got really hot in the afternoon and my girls on the run team had a rough practice run. They managed to tough it out though and have some fun along the way.
20 min elliptical
90 min kickboxing and strength training (sweating buckets in the heat)
I knew the temps were going to be in the mid 90’s again so I tried to get out early for my bike/run brick. The bike went well but the run -ugh it was awful. I really thought I was going to crush this one but sometimes they don’t go as planned. Complete steam bath out there.I was still sweating while blow drying my hair and hour later-lol. Exhausted the rest of the day.
Took a much needed rest day. Very unusual but I have the whole house to myself all weekend! Husband is away on business and both of my kids left for different trips all weekend. What to do with myself? I went to a happy hour at a friend’s house and was in bed at 10:30. It was fabulous I got almost 9 hours of sleep.
Still a little upset about how badly that brick went and was tempted to just stay in bed all morning. I got over my pity party and went to the crazy hard hill ride I’ve been doing. These hills are no joke! We climbed almost 2000 feet of elevation in 22 miles. I am slowly improving my average pace on these rides. Progress feels good and I am glad I got up and went.
Today is my end of the season girls on the run 5K race. Thank goodness it’s cooled off for them. Stay tuned to see how it went. So excited to run with these girls today!
See you tomorrow for Meatless Monday 🙂
How was your week? What are you glad you accomplished that you almost didn’t?
