Things Are Afoot....

Well, THAT weekend blew by.  Guess that's what happens when you decide to celebrate your birthday for the entire weekend, ha.  Friday night G and I went to see the musical, Once (SO amazing).   I had a rather lazy Saturday morning, G had to go out for Pickering for 9 am so I lazed about until about 9:30 and figured I'd better get my butt out the door and do my run as I wanted to hit up a yoga class as well.  Saturday night we went out for dinner with a couple of friends.  They stopped by our place for some drinks first.  My friend Kiki went out west and picked this up for me so of course we had to crack it open.

Needless to say it was a late night.  The clocks springing forward made it an even later night.  I dragged my butt for most of yesterday.  I still managed a good hard bike ride.  And then I had an excruciatingly painful massage that afternoon that totally wiped me out.

But that means my legs should be good to go to start building up my mileage again.  Of course this means that I've been thinking about some longer distance races.  I'm not going to spill the beans just yet.  I'm going to see how my running progresses over the next couple of weeks before I commit to anything.  But, I'm happy to say that things are definitely afoot....and that's where I'm going to leave it for now, ha ha.

Anyway, I got a really solid week of training in which is good as this week will probably be pretty sparse since I'm on location on Thursday and Friday.  Both of which are going to be long days.  So I've kind of written them off for doing anything.   This is how last week went down:

Monday:  Swim 2600m
Tuesday:  70 minute strength workout
Wednesday:  am:  6km run pm:  45 minute trainer ride
Thursday:  1h and 40 minutes of physio, weights, strength work + gait work.  This was split between the gym and the Runner's Academy.  I got my butt kicked at the Runner's Academy.  I was totally sweaty by the time I finished my appointment.  It was awesome.
Friday:  2550m swim
Saturday:  7.3km run then 60 minutes of hot yoga.  Boy did I ever need that.
Sunday:  1h 27 minute ride, with 2x20 minutes at 150 watts + 5 minutes at 200+ watts.  Holy jello legs.

Total time:  8h 58 minutes.  Yup, it was a big week.

How was your week of workouts?

Happy Belated Birthday! Looks like you had an amazing birthday weekend! Your workouts are amazing too, totally inspiring and you make me want to go swim (but I still can't bring myself to go to lap swim!)
