Funny, last winter a 10 hour week would have been a peak week!
Thoughts of the week:
|The long road back to work.|
|Loving this winter so far. The bay still hasn't frozen over!|
|EZ run = no guilt on stopping for a selfie. OK, I don't feel any guilt about that anyway. Selfies forever!|
Let's see, what else. The trainer rides felt really easy this week, which is probably how they should have felt, given I went from 7 hours of rides down to 4! All set to do some crazy bullshit this upcoming week.
|The sun!! You guys the sun was out!! It's actually pretty startling how big a difference that can make on winter runs. A little sunlight makes the wind and cold easier to take.|
That's about it! Other than that hiccup with my ankle, it was a good week. I used my sudden extra time to take the kids sledding and help the little one do the requirements of her chef badge for Brownies, and got the house cleaned up. So it was pretty nice.
The plan for this week:
Monday: rest; foam roll to keep that sciatica calmed down
Tuesday: swim; TR - Haku (1 hour)
Wednesday: Tempo run
Thursday: swim; TR - Phoenix (1:30)
Friday: EZ run; TR - Tray Mountain (1:30)
Saturday: TR - Big Mountain (3 hours) + brick run; swim?
Sunday: Long run; swim?
I am kind of excited for the trainer rides this week because I've started watching The 100 on Netflix. It's terrible (the premise makes zero sense) but at the same time it's awesome. It's sort of a futuristic Lord of the Flies where instead of being shipwrecked, the characters are landed on a future Earth after a nuclear war has wiped out civilization, and everyone is really, really good looking and well groomed and they all make endlessly stupid decisions. It's perfect for the trainer because it's silly and fluffy but also totally entertaining. Can't wait to watch more!
