Training Updates: Nov 28 – Dec 4

Well, I finally had a week where I got in ALL of my workouts on the actual planned days!  Hooray! I’m not going to lie, by Friday my legs were tired and ready for a rest day 🙂  I was also very productive this weekend and organized the kitchen cabinets, cleaned the basement (which was much needed), put up the rest of the Christmas decorations, and put up the tree.

Our little ‘gym’

Donating the items in the middle. There were boxes in the far left corner and all along the wall to the right.  Kind of glad I didn’t take a ‘before’ photo because it was embarassing!

I woke up this morning with sore arms, but it was worth it!  Ok, on to last week’s training:

Monday: 1500y swim in the am, followed by 30 min of yoga in the pm

Tuesday: 5.35 miles of speedwork on the treadmill before work

Wednesday: 52 min trainer ride in the am followed by 2500y swim in the pm. I hate swimming in the evenings since my gym only has 7:30-9:30p swimming hours, so by the time I got home it was time for bed.

Thursday: early morning 70 minute trainer ride, followed by 20 min of strength work

Friday: Rest day, and it was much needed, my quads were sore.  I now know I am definitely out of shape….

Saturday: 3050y swim/5 mile brick workout (on the treadmill…not ready for cold weather running yet)

Sunday: 2 hours on the trainer.  I was bored after 1.5 hours…next week I need to get creative!

Total Training Hours: 8:43

Hooray for a solid week for the first time in MONTHS. It really felt good to get back into the groove and remember what training actually feels like.  Also, I cannot believe I’ve been swimming 3x a week for over a month. Wow.  I’m happy I’ll have some good looking guns and also am hoping it will translate into some faster swimming times too!  I will leave you with a picture of Patrick next to our tree (JMR worked late last night, so still waiting to put the ornaments on).
