I'm going to do a weekly recap each Monday of what my training looked like the previous week. So here we go with the first one! This week was mostly a recovery week and I really had a hard time motivating myself to get back into training.
Monday: Rest Day!
Tuesday: Massage and sunset swim at Meech Lake
Wednesday: TTP with OTC- 20 minutes of strength, one hour on the bike, 20 minute run. We were in the studio for the strength and spin session, so no pictures.
Thursday: going away party for one of the barre girls, so another rest day
Friday: sangria and froyo with the roomie, instead of my run (its all about balance!)
Saturday: Open Water Swim "Championships" with the OTC. There was a club aquathon after the OWS, but I had to leave to go teach a barre class. Plus an ice cream / pool party to celebrate a friend and a BBQ with some girlfriends.
Sunday: 25k ride in Gatineau Park in the rain (photo below is from when it finally cleared up a bit)! I left my helmet at home after driving out to the country, so I had to go all the way home before I could go ride. Of course I chose the one part of the city where it was raining! I also spent the day constantly refreshing the live results from IM Lake Placid, IM 70.3 Calgary, and IM Canada to see how my friends were doing! In awe of the amazing displays of courage, determination and athleticism that is an Ironman race.
