It’s time for another Weekly Wrap with Hoho and Wendy. Our crazy up and down weather had me rearranging my schedule all week to maximize my time on my bike. My first Sprint Tri of the season is next weekend and I’ve been a little worried about getting in enough bike time. Turns out, it’s Just Like Riding A Bike.
Weekly Wrap Just Like Riding a Bike
Sunday- Yoga for hips and back workshop
A 2 hour yoga workshop where I was reminded of a few fabulous stretches for my hips. Always great to get a few more pro tips on posture as well.
Monday- 30m elliptical + 60 min strength training + 30 min bike ride
I took advantage of the sunny warm day and got in a quick outdoor bike ride post strength training. Feeling much better with remembering how the gears work. It always takes me a few weeks to back to speed on the gears. Turns out it’s just like riding a bike.
Tuesday- 4.2 mile run
Everyone is coming out now that the temps are up a bit. Love a big morning run group!
Wednesday- 90 min kickboxing & strength training
This week’s Workout Wednesday was an arm burner including a few minutes with my battle ropes. I bought these a few years ago on a huge Black Friday sales. Definitely fun to use from time to time.
Thursday- 4 mile run
We had a nice little head wind but the warmer temps had me feeling good today. We welcomed a few new MRTT members to the group.
Friday- Vinyasa yoga 60 m
I was supposed to swim today but woke up not feeling very “swimmy”. A rainy day kept me from another bike ride so I headed to Vinyasa yoga. Turns out it was just what I needed. Feeling pretty amazing afterwards.
Saturday- 40 min bike ride + 20 min run
I was stressing about Saturday’s “Brick” workout. I often feel like I have jelly legs when trying to run off of the bike. I don’t know if it was sleeping in and going a little later or eating lots of carbs the night before, but I felt better than I have in a long time. I had my fastest bike/run combo this year.
This was just the confidence boost I needed before next Sunday’s sprint tri. Maybe I should stress less and rest more. Turns out, maybe it is just like riding a bike.
