Monday: Spinning class with the OTC. It was stage 12 and 13 of the Tour de France. My bike fitness has certainly taken a hit over the past 2 months of my "break" from training. Time to dial it back in so that I am ready for January.
Tuesday: We had the day off of work for Remembrance Day. I took full advantage and did my own sort of moving mediation on why I am so thankful for our servicemen and women. The day started with a 6 am swim (2700m) followed by a short strength and stability workout. Then I went to a hot, sweaty and peaceful yoga class. In the afternoon I enjoyed a final 20k ride up to Champlain Lookout in Gatineau Park with my OTC buddies.

Wednesday: Rest Day
Thursday: A nice 5k run after I taught the 6 am barre class. I was quite happy to see that I averaged 7:19 pace. I'm thinking of doing a 5k when I go to Phoenix for the holidays, so I'm going to keep working on my run. I hosted book club in the evening and made this really delicious pumpkin hummus - 1 cup pumpkin purée, 1 - 15 ounce can of chickpeas (drained), 2 tablespoons Justin's maple almond butter, generous drizzle of olive oil (add more to taste), pinch of sea salt, dash of cinnamon, dash of nutmeg. Blend until smooth.
Friday: Rest Day.
Saturday: Noon yoga class, followed by a delicious green juice of kale, apple, grapefruit, ginger, parsley, and lemon. Yum! I also went to see Gone Girl with my roommate. If you've read the book or not, and still haven't seen it, go see it! They did a really good job with the movie. It will leave you very unsettled, that is for sure.
Sunday: Rest Day. Too much fun at my girls' night on Saturday night, oops!
Too many rest days, but I did survive waking up 3 times at 5 am last week. Now I just need to do that again this week! And I am going to set my bike trainer up this week as well so that I have no excuses but to work on my bike fitness!
