Weekly wrap up.

OH MY GOODNESS. This week was NOT a rest week! WHEEEEEEE! It was a really tough week, but I feel like in general, I managed it well. Hoping it does reward me. Ran well on Monday and seemed to manage the stretching.  I think because I was really sore from the long run, the stretching …

Fun Friday

Oh Friday’s how I love them….   THis was great at work because I figured out how to do ALL of the statistical analysis that my one project required.  WHEE!  Plus, luckily it worked in my favor.  Our research did come out with a good p-value so it can be considered statistically significant.     …

Terrific Tuesday!

I do Love Tuesdays!  Even if they are more like Mondays. Seems that Tuesday is just the BEST DAY OF THE WEEK….forget the annoying camel. Anyway. Our Pool is still.  rather closed.  So  no Transition Tuesday, and thankfully my friend did not join me this morning. I cycled on the Stationary for an hour getting …

Rest week Wrap Up….

For a rest week, this week got a bit intense… On Monday I was to bike for 20 mins and then – never saw this before- do 30 minutes of stretching and “yoga etc”  hmmm.  Not a fan of Yoga. I think I made it about 26 minutes broken into 2 sessions of stretching, foam …

Thursdays Fun.

You know..for a rest week…this is turning out to be kind of a busy one. Thursday had a 20 min bike ride, a 3 mile run with some pickups in it, and Weights. So, noting our fallish weather… temp 77 humidity 93%  I decided to get the run done in the morning in that delicious …

Sleepy Saturday

So, I believe now that the long workout on Saturday is responsible for most of my feelings of exhaustion. I woke up late today and still felt like I had taken a huge ride on the pain train… Which is I suppose what I have done.  My low back and shoulders were especially tight.  THis …

Training Week Recap- or why I really appreciate my Coach.

Last week,  I experienced a true crisis of confidence.  I had a complete failure at the long run.  I started out, and at mile three, I abruptly turned around and pretty much walked home.  I did a few more miles on the Treadmill, but the entire failure just shook me.   I had had a …

Wicked Wednesday

Not great.  Not great at all. My issues started on Tuesday night.  I went to Taco Tuesday!  At Tijuana Flats. It’s a funky Florida place, kind of a “chain”  in our area.  on Tuesday, 2 tacos and a drink 4.99.  Can’t beat that. I had chicken tacos and they were lovely.  Sadly…. At about 3 …

This week in training….

Wow what a week. I still have a strange little workout… “Run the 5K course, rest 2 minutes and run 2 miles steady”  Not sure if that is Run the 5K course fast, or what…but I’m confident I can do it.  Yeah, I could email for clarification, but to be honest, it’s so hot here …
