IRONMAN COEUR D’ALENE: WEEK 3

I’ve mentioned the emotional roller coaster that is recovery, but I’m happy to report we were on the fun part this week. How so? Allow me to count the ways…

Monday, 1/28: Swim

Nothing too special to note here, just getting my swimmy swammy on. Oh, and it was frickin’ freezing. The end. I also got a deep massage where we literally worked on my lower left leg for an entire hour. It was glorious.

Tuesday, 1/29: Indoor Ride & Run

Sweaty indoor trainer ride in the am, followed by a “I’m so f-ing pumped up on endorphines right now” treadmill run. Eminem you know how to cut to my soul. Not really. But thanks for letting me feel like I’m a straight up bad ass for a couple miles.

Wednesday, 1/30: Weirdness

With a check-in PT appointment in the am and then heading out of town directly after work, I only got in a 15 minute core workout. I ended up shuffling the rest of my training schedule around for the remainder of the week, but that’s what training is. Making it work with your life.

Thursday, 1/31: Yoga & Indoor Ride

30 minutes with Yoga Studio App to warm up the body, followed by an indoor trainer ride at my parent’s place. This ride was also my WITHOUT MY BRACE! Fist pumps ensued.

Oh, and for the record, Matt Lauer makes every morning better. Thank you, NBC, for nailing him down into a long contract.

Friday, 2/1: Indoor Ride & Run

With the baby shower on Saturday, I had to squeeze in both workouts on Friday. Another indoor ride followed by what was my first RUN WITHOUT MY BRACE! I thought this called for a ridiculous treadmill selfie.

Saturday, 2/2: Baby Shower!

Can I count running around like a chicken with their head cut off (whoa, bad image, sorry Chicken Face) as cardio? Nah. Well it was worth it celebrating my sis and soon-to-be nephew.

Sunday, 2/3: Indoor Ride

If you’re paying attention, I only swam once this week. Beeee-doooooo. I was supposed to travel home then head to the pool, but I was too anxious to watch Beyonce do her thang, errr…I mean watch football. So I swapped my workout for an hour on the trainer while Beyonce immortalized herself in my brain as queen of everything. Fair call?

I closed out week 3 with:

6 hours and 5 minutes of training: 
1,400 yards swimming 
60.5 miles cycling 
6.5 miles running
15 minutes strength
30 minutes of yoga

So that was the week. Did you experience any highs? Anyone else madly obsessed with Beyonce now?

Happy Running!
