I am joining in with Wendy and Hoho for another weekly wrap! I love having a place to keep a virtual training log of all of my workouts to look back on as a way to connect with other like minded fitness friends. This week, I am finally feeling like I am back on track with workouts.
Weekly Wrap Back on Track
While I mentioned Friday, that I had some stressful challenges last week, my workouts were one of the only aspects that felt good. Making the initial swing from training for running races to training for triathlon races, is never as smooth as I expect it to be. This week, I finally feel back on track.
Sunday- First Brick Workout 12 miles bike + 2.5 mile run
This was way harder than I expected! The first few times I try to run off the bike are just brutal (and very slow). I was able to schedule it so I caught up with a friend for the run which always helps.
Monday- 30 min Elliptical + 60 min
Lots of upper body and core work today.
Tuesday- 4 mile run + 30 min yoga/stretch
Back to our fun shenanigans on the run! Getting tired of our winter clothes but I refuse to give in and wear gloves.
Wednesday- 5 mile bike ride + 90 min kickboxing/strength training
Took advantage of the nicer weather and added in a short bike ride before my normal strength training. Challenging but good!
Thursday- 4 mile run
Fun to run with Erika (MCM Mama) and catch up. Another weird day around here. Treated to warmer sunshine for the second half of our run after starting in the rain.
Friday- 60 min yoga class + 1625 m Swim
I was pretty stiff this morning and Vinyassa class was just what I needed. Totally got my butt kicked in swim class. I was huffing and puffing for sure. Thought about blowing it off but was so glad afterwards.
Saturday- 5k race + 10 mile bike
Had the rare opportunity to run a small 5k with my son. He plays lacrosse but really not a fan of running. We had the best time together and he certainly kept me at a faster pace than I would have run. I was trying so hard to keep up with all the boys. Feeling pretty good afterwards, I hopped on my bike for 10 miles. I realize I did them in the wrong order but still counting it as great tri training.
I was pretty much toast after those 2 events but I could not pass up a chance to get together with all the Cherry Blossom ambassadors for a race recap. Always fun to hang with my friend Coco.
