I felt like last week was great, but this past week was a bit of a step-back week. There was a lot going on, and I ended up choosing to stay calm & sane rather than beat myself up energy-wise by cramming so much more in.
Monday: Rest. I didn’t plan very well, and scheduled a spray tan test in preparation for the wedding. I didn’t realize you can’t sweat/shower for 8-10 hours afterward, which didn’t help for a noon appointment! It looked good though!
Tuesday: Vision Quest Computrainer Class. This was the final workout of the first series (theme was strength). It was maybe the hardest workout ever – warm-up, then 20 minutes all out. Then do it again! I accomplished a 170 max watts, which was a good 33% more than what we’d estimated my threshold when I first started. It was also my first ride after the bike fit, and my elbow felt so much better! I think some of the additional power was also do to improved fit & comfort on the bike.
Wednesday: Rest. I planned on an AM workout but my legs were shot from last night. And I had a marathon wedding planning meeting after work, so a glass of wine was in order following. I’ve realized it’s really hard for me to run after work in the winter time!
Thursday: Personal Training Strength Work. Met up with Dan from Hard Pressed to resume my workouts. I realized my arms may not transform themselves to Michelle Obama’s on their own!
Friday: Rest. I took today off from work, and while I meant to get in a run, I just did not have the energy in me, knowing that I was heading out for a busy brides’s weekend in DC!
Saturday: I hope dancing at a great lounge/club counts!
Sunday: Rest and recover.
It was a lighter week workout wise, and I hope I can work toward some shorter workouts when I’m going to otherwise skip a workout.
Plans for this week:
- Monday: Run.
- Tuesday: run in AM, Computrainer workout in PM.
- Wednesday: AM Yoga? I hope so!
- Thursday: AM personal training (hello!). PM ladies’ night run ideally, but I may have a work dinner.
- Friday: Run or Rest.
- Saturday: 7-8 mile run if possible
- Sunday: short shakeout run or Yoga.
