Hello Sweaty Betties! Time to join in for another edition of the Weekly Wrap with Hoho, Tricia and this week’s guest host Tara. With my next tri race 4 weeks out, I am organizing my next few weeks to work on my weaknesses. Right now, that weakness is my bike run brick. I am planning to do one of those each week to get more used to running on heavy legs especially in the heat. Here’s how my week went down.
M-20m elliptical, 60 m strength training and 10 m bike ride.
Since my tri race is in mid July, I am expecting hot and humid temps and Monday’s bike ride in 93 degree heat was great practice. I felt fine on the bike but was completely wiped out the rest of the day.
T- 3 mile run + 30 m swim. Another hot and humid day so we cut our run to 3 miles. If you missed my favorite hot weather hack-I like to keep some icy towels in a ziploc to squeeze on my head post run. If you have not tried this yet, it’s a game changer.
W- 90 m of strength training & kick boxing. Finishing up with one of my fave moves push ups and planks on the Bosu.
If you missed my Bosu Blast workout pin it now for later. It’s a great hit every muscle workout 🙂
Th- Bike + Run Brick Day (13 mile bike + 3 mile run)
Met my friend Lori for a bike run. The run is always hard post bike but it did not suck as much as usual so that’s a win.
Fr- Skipped my morning elliptical and headed straight to 1 hour swim class.
Snagged the very important pre class photo. The water felt amazing with all the heat and humidity we’ve been having. Happy to be seeing lots of improvement in my swim times this summer.
Sat- 5 mile run
Mixed up our run route and ran into Georgetown. No joke the humidity was 90% when we left. This run ended in a well know bakery “Baked and Wired” where I had the most delicious and refreshing lemonade ever. It’s easy to take for granted all the beautiful places to run in DC. You can sort of make out the hazy Washington Monument back there.
We were so sweaty that we joked about the butt prints we left on the bench outside the bakery. Can’t believe I forgot a photo of that! LOL
Sunday- rest day!
My hubs just got back last night from a work trip and both kids are home yay! We plan to spend a relaxing day hanging out at the pool together hoping the weather cooperates. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!
Tell me: Have you left a sweaty butt print anywhere? Inquiring minds want to know!
