Training and Life Recap: Week of September 8

My first week of "off season" training was last week. I took things pretty easy, mostly because it was a very social week for me and because my tummy was feeling really off until about Wednesday following my Olympic triathlon in Montreal.  Then, mid-week last week I signed up for my first half-marathon.  Nothing like a new goal to motivate you!

Monday: Barre Class at iNSiDE Out Studio.  Read about why I love barre as a triathlete here.

Tuesday: Swimming.  My first swim practice... at 6 am! Since my stomach was bothering me, I only did 4400 of the 5100 practice. By far, the longest, I have swam in a long time (well except for the day I tested out a practice with this group.)

Wednesday: Bike ride with the girls in Gatineau Park. Lots of hills and lots of laughs as we attempted to get into "super-aero" position on the downhills.

Pink Lake

Thursday: Taught the 6 am barre class. Celebrated a friend's birthday in the evening.

Friday: Rest day!

Saturday: 8 mile run with the girls.  I got stung by a bee at about mile 5.5! Ouch! Taught 2 barre classes after.

Sunday: Another rest day.  Potluck brunch with the training group!
