End of Week Recap
What a FANTASTIC week of training.
I really really had fun.
This was probably due to lower miles, and being back in my home gym, but whatever.
It was also a week of BIKE shopping.
Whew, what a hassle. I shopped Craig’s List daily, several times daily when I wasn’t at work. I looked all over the state of Florida. I thought I had found one but discovered that it was super tall, and the guy who rode it in the past was 5’9″…
Apparently, it’s a supply and demand thing. There are a lot more people who are above 5’4″ than below these days, thus it’s really easy to find a reliable bike in that range, but when you go a wee bit shorter…things happen. There is a bike…that I may end up with, but not going to say to much about it until it happens. I’m still shopping Craig’s List. What a chore.
So training this week was BRICK, Brick brick. Mini Baby Bricks. 4 bike and runs…
I don’t know why but I really do love this workout. I remember the first one I ever did and how cool I thought it was at the time. My coach was surprised because Bricks are not much loved. I was running and thinking, “Wahoo!!! everything feels so strange but I’m going!!!” That sensation never gets old to me. So, this week was full of Brick love.
All of the other workouts were combinations of swim/run or run/bike or swim/bike. Kinda bricky but not the traditional Brick.
I seem to do more brick work than most…I think it’s because the coach man knows I kinda like ’em. He’s good at putting workouts I like that make sense on the plan, this I appreciate.
Anyway, it seems most of my troubles that were plaguing me, just like a freaking plague….have gone.
Rather than the plague this week I felt all:
Sunshine and Lollipops.
If things go as planned this is the week I meet with the coach and we try to plan some things. We’ll see. He’s a busy guy. I always get my plan right on time, but the meet ups are tough to schedule. I am hoping for Monday, but, haven’t heard yet.
How was your First Week in January? Many are tapering down for Disney and I wish them all the BEST of Luck and the BEST Disney Magical experience possible!
