Remember how ginormous my previous week was? Remember how I said that this week was supposed to be an even bigger one? Well, it wasn't. Yes, I had the workouts scheduled but my body just did not want to cooperate. I was busy at work, I had two really crappy nights of sleep after my big weekend so I don't really think I recovered properly. Add to that a serious ART session on Monday night and my body was a bit of a mess. I was dragging my butt for most of the week. I even skipped my Friday morning swim in favour of sleeping in, which turned out to be ok as the pool ended up being closed. Clearly I needed the rest. The rest was probably a good thing considering what I had on tap for the weekend.
Sooo, let's see how this past week went down.
Monday: 1500m swim. Had to get out early to get to the dentist. ART appt in p.m. so no workout.
Tuesday: Had an 80 minute bike on tap but skipped it and opted to rest my hip and knees. Spent some quality time with my pal Ice Pack instead.
Wednesday: 2800m swim. This was a tough set. Was supposed to ride / run when I got home but I worked late so I didn't.
Thursday: a.m. 40 minute bike, 2km run. This was supposed to be an interval workout but I had absolutely NO gas in the tank. I was exhausted. So I did what I could. I did get to see a beautiful sunrise though.
Friday: Was supposed to swim but I got up looked at my bathing suit and said, screw that, and went directly back to bed and fell into the best sleep ever for the next hour.
Saturday: Binbrook Tri. 750m swim, 30km bike, 7.5 km run. Total time: 1:40:55. A full 3 minutes faster than last year! Landed me in 2nd place in my AG (the woman who beat me was a MACHINE) and 3rd place female overall. Race report to come!
Sunday: 106km ride at race pace followed by a 13km run at race pace. What an epic day of workouts.
Total time: 8h 32 min. Most of which was on the weekend, ha ha.
Now I am officially in taper mode. Only 6 days until we leave and I haven't even started packing yet! I better get on that soon.
How was your week of workouts? Anyone else have any fun summer vacation plans?
