I'm sure most of us are asking that question today. Luckily for me, I still have two days before I head back to work. I need a couple of days to decompress from all the go-go-go of the last few days and get myself sorted for the impending insanity. By impending insanity, I mean Boston / 70.3 training. My Boston training started last week and my 70.3 training started today.
This is what my first week looks like:
Monday: Swim (I swam 2850m in case you were wondering)
Tuesday A.M.: bike P.M: tempo run with WTP + 30 min body weight session post run (that means no dawdling when I get home)
Thursday A.M.: bike P.M.: interval work + 30 min body weight session post run. Coach Ming said I could switch this around as long as I feel recovered from Tuesday nights run. If not, I'll have to switch it back to bike in the morning and run at night.
Saturday: Long run + 30 min weight session at the gym (this is going to be FUN on those 20+milers given that there are box jumps in this workout, ha ha) + 30 minute swim if possible. If I'm at the gym and there's no aquafit class, that shouldn't be an issue. Unless of course, I fall asleep on a mat after my weight workout.
Sunday: Swim + Long Bike
I've got a lot of doubles happening, although realistically this isn't too far off my usual training schedule. Minus the Saturday insanity of course. I usually only do a long run on Saturday and that's it. It will be interesting to see how I manage once I add these other things in here. I do know one thing; I am going to need a whole lot of ready made, good for me food. So that is my plan for the next two days. I'm going to cook my butt off. I made a few things on the weekend (my smoky chicken chili & a beef stew) so we've got a couple of things in the freezer already I made a bunch of gingerbread pancakes, a few of which I had after my swim this morning. The rest have been put in the freezer.
|This mornings amazingness - Gingerbread pancakes stuffed with honey & cinnamon ricotta.|
|So glad we moved our old fridge into the basement! Extra storage!|
Anyone else still have a few days off?
