EEEEEEEk! I have a little less than two weeks until the Lost Dutchman Half. This past week, I rocked the workouts, especially the swim. Big question… Did I get on the bike this week? (Spoiler alert: Yes! I did!)
Week in Review
Monday – Masters Swim 1275 yds
What? I kept double checking my math, because I couldn’t believe that I completed that workout. I’m working on the pull with the pull buoy. Whoa, it’s hard and makes me feel very uncoordinated!
Tuesday – Barbell
I’m working on my confidence and form.
Wednesday – Whoo-hoo! Masters Swim AND I got on the bike!
Yes, I’m “dance of joy” happy!
Thursday – Celebrated a BRF (Best Running Friend’s) Birthday with 4+ mile treadmill run
Friday – Mini swim
Saturday – rest day
Sunday – 10 miler in the fog!
What I’m proud of
I’m just slightly addicted to swimming these days. It’s gratifying to get the pool and feel the smooth glide of the water. It’s quiet and peaceful. A little like yoga and another way to get my zen on.
I’ve been incorporating the #noexcuses challenge prompts into my workouts.
Where I’m struggling
Getting my runs in during the week, and when I do run, I feel like I’m chasing numbers. I forgot my Bia and Garmin for my long run on Sunday, so I was relying on my navigational skills and my Strava app on the phone. I was a little dissappointed with my times when I reached the halfway point. I thought I was pushing myself more that what was reflected. After I posted it on instagram, I received positive feedback and I realized that I’m still doing great. It’s just a matter of perspective. I also need more foam rolling & stretching in my life!
What I’m working towards this week
Incorporating yoga stretches as part of the #TakeTheLeap challenge. Another bike ride!
I’ll be joining Jesica at rUnladylike for the weekly recap link up, join us in keeping focused on those 2015 goals!
