Wow it’s Sunday again and time for another Weekly Wrap with Tricia, Hoho and guest host Janelle. I wrote this a few days ago because my Sprint Tri race is (was) today. This is my third race of the season and my trainer and I agree that I really needed a full Tri Taper week this go around. He feels, and I reluctantly agreed, that I have been doing a little too much lately. I was feeling really tired and a true taper week was needed. I even took 2 complete rest days (unless you count power shopping as a workout). Here’s how my week shook out.
Weekly Wrap Tri Taper Week
One last Swim, Run, Swim with my crew. I am loving this combo of workouts and the weather was gorgeous.
30 m elliptical easy, 60 min strength training
Tried out Om Float therapy and lived to tell about it. In case you missed my review read it here.
Short run 2.25 miles and a stop at 7-11 on the way back for free Slurpee day. Have to say, they are so super sweet I couldn’t really drink it. Short swim 900 m easy.
90 min strength training & kick boxing
Kept the intensity much lower this week and included more stretching time.
8 mile bike ride. It was so hot outside that running would just be a bad idea so I did a lower intensity bike ride. Spent the rest of the afternoon blogging and hanging at the pool with a friend.
Met up with my running group for the post run coffee date. No running for me. Then met up with one of my besties for some Power Shopping. Does that still count as a rest day?
Rest day #2
2 Rest days in a row! Wow I am getting very antsy. Packet pickup and checked into my hotel. Met some friends for dinner for a pre race excuse to carb up.
Sprint Tri Day
Stay tuned for details
That’s how my week went down. Anyone else racing this weekend? Did you do a true taper?
Hope to see you tomorrow for meatless Monday 🙂
