Jumping in to join Tricia and HoHo for the Weekly Wrap Memorial Day. I’ve got my next triathlon race next Sunday so I tried to
fit in as many workouts as I possibly could stick to my plan (sort of) and get in a few last minute bricks. Here’s how this week went down.
M-30 m elliptical easy, 60 m strength training mostly arms and abs.
T- Tuesday 4 mile run with girls followed by a little group push up action. They are all too kind to always indulge me in the photo shoots. Skipped my regularly scheduled easy swim day.
W-20 m elliptical, 90 m strength training and kickboxing. Finished off with a set of dead lifts on the BOSU one of my favorite moves. Always feel those the next day.
Thu- Another rainy day around here! I was supposed to do my last bike/run brick today but did not want to ride in the rain. Biked for 30 m inside the headed out to join my friend and great conversation. Love the runs where you know you might not have gone out if a friend was not waiting for you. After a few minutes the drizzle didn’t bother us at all!
Fri-Finally managed to coordinate a 14 m bike ride with my friend, Holly, pretty close to race pace. Headed off to master swim class after that. Thought we would get rained on again but it held out for us. Went home to bake cookies for my son’s friends that were coming to hang out. Boy can teenage boys eat a lot!
Sat- Really felt like I needed a do over of my bike/run brick. The hardest part of the tri race for me if running off of the bike. I set up little workout for myself based on this workout below but the third run turned into a coffee :). Glad I got one more brick in before next week’s race. I then headed home to greet my hubs who just arrived back from an over seas trip.
I completely crashed on the couch for a nice long mid day nap. It was cold and raining again (sensing a pattern here?) and our pool plans went down the drain. I am really hoping that we can shake this super rainy weather pattern we have been in and have at least one nice pool day this weekend.
I’ve got another “take out make over” for you tomorrow for Meatless Monday-hope to see you there. Have a Memorial Day full of sun and fun! Randomly craving strawberry shortcake so might have to whip that up this weekend.
What foods are you craving?
