Saturday night was the "Sporty Spice" girls night out. I drove out to Oakville to meet up with Sam, Irina, Kim, Nicole, Emma and a whole bunch of other ladies I know from social media / running / triathlon. Now THAT was a lot of fun. I talked so much I lost my voice by the end of the night, ha ha. We were asked to bring our medal from our favourite race this year. I had a hard time picking one but I settled on Muskoka 70.3 because I raced with G and one of my good friends and I knew so many other people that were racing, it just ended up being a super fun day / weekend. Scotiabank was a very close second for the very same reasons.

This is how this past weekend rolled out. I'm finally getting back into a regular routine again. I seem to be having a hard time getting to yoga though. Another week gone by and no yoga. This week I probably won't have time until the weekend. C'est la vie.
Monday: 2000m swim
Tuesday: 60 minute strength session in a.m. 60 minute trainer ride in p.m.
Wednesday: 2450m swim
Thursday: 5km run in the Altra's - my first real run since Scotia + a 50 minute strength workout
Saturday: 1h 10 minute mountain bike ride + 2.4km run in the Altra's.
Sunday: 1800m swim + 1h 50 minute trainer ride / sweat fest. I've stopped using the fan to cool me down when I ride. I'm trying to get my body used to the heat. I think that was part of the problem with Eagleman this year. I wasn't ready for the heat. If I can ride inside with no fan over the course of the winter, I think it will be somewhat helpful when I get outside. Especially if Tremblant ends up being hot. I plan on trying to "train hot" as much as possible with this round of training. We'll see how that works for me come summer time.
It should be noted that I rode FOUR TIMES this week. FOUR. And only ran TWICE. WHO AM I?
How was your weekend? Did you get out and enjoy the AMAZING weather?
