The week started out great and then slowly petered out to a horrible finish. I'll just sort of leave it at that, but I do feel like I have to #keepitreal around here. Sometimes life is not sunshine and rainbows, and that's how the week ended. Working on taking care of myself and my happiness. Training should help with that, since it will hopefully help me stay focused this week.
Monday: Not quite a brick to start the week off. I had a long ride on the bike (1:40), and I didn't wake up early enough to get my run in too, so I had to save it for later in the day before teaching my barre classes. Then my Garmin refused to work, so I didn't really know how far or how long I had been out running (no pockets because it was warm meant no phone either). Sometimes it is nice to run technology free!
Tuesday: Up early for a swim. There were rumours that we were doing a 1500 time trial last week, but it didn't end up happening on either of my swim days. Part of me wanted to do it, to see where I was, but part of me was quite happy to not have to do it hah! Instead we did a few fast 100s, and I felt great!
Wednesday: Gorgeous morning for a nice, easy run! The evening brought another trainer workout - this time with Tabata intervals, which actually made the time fly! And a strength workout with my OTC family. First time hydrating with Osmo Active Hydration for Women too! Love this stuff. Subtle flavour and I woke up feeling well hydrated on Thursday morning (usually wake up slightly dehydrated after my long day of workouts on Wednesday). #womenarenotsmallmen
Thursday: A snowshoe run to enjoy the last bits (hopefully) of winter in Gatineau Park. It was a lot harder than I expected, since I picked a fairly steep hill. The way down was great though! A few extra k's without the snowshoes to finish it off and enjoy the sunset over the lake.
Friday: I made it to both swims! And no time trial again, which was a relief because my body and brain were not having it. It wasn't that I was tired, I just couldn't quite pick the pace up and swim fast.
Saturday: The track was closed and we had freezing rain all day, so I opted to wait to do my track workout. I should have just done it though and gotten it out of the way.
Sunday: Not a good day. Sometimes a run is exactly what I need to clear my head when I am sad or stressed out, but I couldn't even muster the energy to do that. So another rest day and no track workout for the week.
