Tuesday: oh just a bit of everything
|Math error on this workout (4x25m does not equal 200m there book), and in trying to correct it to get the total distance right I managed to make it worse...|
5:30am is early. Good swim, though. Helps when you basically sleep through the first half it.
Out of the office for a lunch run. Flat, easy, slushy in spots as all the snow starts melting, but I'll take it over -20 any day.
|Um does anyone see the problem here? Check where your fan is pointing before you start...|
New roads on Zwift! Although from what I saw (admittedly I was watching Black Mirror at the same time) it was pretty much just a tree lined road. Not super exciting. But it passed the time.
And then I went to bed and slept like the dead!
My Timehop app informed me that 5 years ago this day was the first time I ever ran to Princess Point at lunch, so naturally Christina and I recreated that run. I am so spoiled for options for running at work!
40 minutes of the big 5 at the weirdly empty especially given that it is January gym. Squats, bench, deadlifts, rows, overhead press. Simple, quick, hits all the muscle groups. Get in, get it done, get the hell out.
Run - 8k
The temperature climbed up to 12 degrees (WTF) so this run practically turned into a swim...
Meh. I am about ready to get back to a Trainerroad program, I think. I need some structure to my cycling and Zwift is starting to bore me.
Swim - 1800m
Zwift: 83 ish km
|"I have how much longer left?"|
Also, snacks. Always have snacks.
|Only picture I manged before the phone froze up and died.|
|man this pool feels lonely some days. I should not complain about that because the opposite is much much worse...|
This was a bit short because have I mentioned the ICE EVERYWHERE?! Gah. Ended up running 4k along the beach on the sand (!) because that was safer than the path. First time I've ever seen the Hamilton side of the beach trail in that bad a condition. Usually the city keeps it clearer :(
But at least I took lots of cool pictures! Makes things a little more fun trying to find those shots, and really if this isn't fun, why would I even bother doing it. Crossing my fingers things warm up a bit and I can go chasing sunrises again soon.
On to week 3! More of the same-ish, although hopefully a longer long run and more weightlifting. I skipped the second session this week to go buy a standing desk for my office, which I think was a better use of time in the long run. Assuming I ever get around to assembling it...
