That's a Wrap + A Weekly Re-cap

Well, this week didn't really pan out the way I had hoped due to my cranky knees but I still managed to get *some* good work in.  I suspect this week will be much of the same leading up to my last race of the season on Sunday.  I'm mentally preparing myself for all the down time I'm going to have after Barrelman.  This weekend also marked my last tri of the 10 degree weather and rain...but there will be a full recap of that later on this week.   It wasn't my best race of the season but it was enough to secure my top spot in the overall AG standings for the Multisport Canada race series.  YES!

My week rolled out like this:

Monday:  OFF

Tuesday:  70 minutes strength & mobility work + a 12km ride into work.

Wednesday:  2250m swim

Thursday:  60 minutes strength & mobility work + 7km interval run in p.m.

Friday:  1750m swim, mostly pull & paddles, which totally killed me.

Saturday:  RACE:  750m swim, 20km bike, 5km run

Sunday: 1600m swim


Swim:  6350m
Bike:  32.80km
Run:  12.11km

Total time:  6h 47 minutes.

I suspect that my weekly recaps are going to start looking a lot more like this.  Minus the running.  And maybe even minus the cycling depending on how my knees feel.  Cue sad face.  Although there will definitely be some yoga and pilates in there.  Gotta work on recruiting those glutes!  On the plus side, if I'm not working out so much, I'll have time to catch up on my reading list and do all those little things I've been meaning to do around the house.


How was your week of training?

LOL have fun with all those things that need doing around the house. ;) Good luck at Barrelman. I can't wait to hear all about it.

Congrats on the AG! You've had a great summer. Now time to recruit the glutes.

I should take a cue and really start doing more yoga too. I used to be so strong and over the last year or so I turned into a soft little weakling, ugh.
