Stronger, faster, fitter!
Last week was a doozy. A totally awesome, kick my ass, body rockin’ doozy. I LOVE IT!
Monday: 2:30 hour bike and 30 minute run
Tuesday: AM workout – 45 minute spin class; PM workout – 1650 yard swim and 4 mile run
Wednesday: 3200 yard swim
Thursday: 45 minute bike + 4 mile run
Saturday: 45 minute bike + 1:15 minute run
Grand Total: 4850 yards of swimming, 4:45 hours of biking, 18.5 miles of running
Thoughts: Feeling really, really good. Although I know that it would be better if I was doing longer long rides on the bike, I am feeling pretty confident about my cycling, which is historically my worst sport. Swimming is going swimmingly (see what I did there?). I can barely believe that I’m up to 3200 yard long swims. I used to think that 1500 yards was SO far. And running is fine. Maybe I should be more concerned about running a half marathon after swimming 1.2 miles and biking 56 miles on race day… but I’m not. I know I can do it – even if I end up crawling across the finish line.
Oh, and in other news… Won’t you join me for another Add, Not Subtract Week? Every now and then, I do this as a personal challenge to myself to ADD more goodness in my life. Too often, when we’ve been less-healthy-than-desirable, our society’s knee-jerk reaction is to take away… to detox… to cut out. That mindset just doesn’t mesh well for me, so I like to think about how I can ADD stuff. I could use more plants in my diet, so I’m working on adding more veggies and fruits this week. My goal is 9 servings a day.
Hope you have a healthy week! Remember… if you want different… do different.
