Thanks for joining Kim and me for the Weekly Run Down today. I was still holding out (unrealistic) hope that my triathlon race might happen. We finally got word this week that it was moved to a virtual. I decided, what the heck, might as well train like a triathlete anyway! I had forgotten how much I loved to swim and also bike outside so I am going to keep it up anyway. Heck, maybe it will even help me get my running mojo back. Here’s a peek into my week.
Train Like a Triathlete
Monday-30 min Peloton cycle + 30 min full body strength + 2 mile afternoon walk
Nothing too earth shattering but a nice mix of cardio and strength to start off the week and the month.

Tuesday-4 mile run + 10 min stretch class
My first run with a friend! I could not have been more excited to get out for a run with one of my MRTT besties. It was just like old times! After not really running for about 10 days, I was excited to get back out there. We hit up one of the more quieter trails. We decided not to take photos together yet. Maybe this week?
Wednesday-2 mile run + 30 min of core + arms strength + afternoon swim
Global running Day! I had set up a sunrise to sunset virtual relay race for our MRTT group. You can read all about it here but suffice to say, it was a huge success. My heart was just so happy! We all felt such a huge sense of community and togetherness at a time when we needed it the most.
A super warm day offered the perfect chance to hit the pool. I forgot how much I loved to swim and that was the day I decided I was going to train like a triathlete even if all my races were not to happen this year.
Thursday-Tabata cycle class + 10 m core + 10 m glutes/legs class + 2.5 mile walk + 15 minute swim
I am enjoying stacking up a bunch of 10 min strength classes together. I have been surprised by how challenging some of them are.
Friday-18 mile bike ride outdoors + 10 min core + 10 min bodyweight strength
Another steamy one and the perfect day for an outdoor bike ride with a friend. It felt almost back to normal out there.
Saturday- 3ish mile morning walk + 10 min arms + 10 min core + 15 min swim + 1.5 mile evening walk
I was feeling antsy today and took a second walk after dinner. have to take advantage of the later sunsets while I can.
Sunday- on the plan 4-5 mile run
Overall, I am pretty happy with my week. I am going to continue to train like a triathlete and keep up my swimming and biking. Perhaps, I will even find my running mojo again! Thanks again for linking up! Happy Sunday.
Hope you will come back tomorrow for my Grilled Eggplant Caprese Pasta Salad.
