Wednesday Workout Recap

This heat is killing me.  It’s so hard to workout in the heat, but I know that it’s good for me, and as my coach pointed out, even the bad workouts are making me stronger.

Monday – Rest day.  Okay, so maybe I didn’t get stronger on this particular day, but rest days are so key to any fitness schedule.

Tuesday – So… I should have gotten up early and done my workout in the morning.  I did not.  Whatever, I raced this weekend.  Instead, I went to the Taylor Swift concert and danced the night away. And it was awesome.

Wednesday – No more excuses.  On the trainer for a speed workout.  This one was really hard.  I don’t know if it was because my legs were tired from the night before or if I was just lazy.  Either way, it was a struggle.

Thursday – Team Fight swim.  I ended up with a total of 2100m in a bit under an hour.  Continuing my trend for the week, I did not want to go, but I was so glad to get the workout in.  I’m noticing just how much my form fades when I get tired.

Friday – Rest day.  Today, I got a massage and ran a bunch of errands and then went to a meal prep place with some friends.  I need to be better about eating healthy, and having meals ready-to-cook in the freezer is a great way for me to do that.

Saturday – Ten miles.  On the treadmill.  There were storms looming, which either meant the risk of getting caught in the storm, or potentially more painful, oppressive humidity.  So I hit the treadmill.  It was a slog.  I didn’t even try for my required paces, which I should have done.  I just focused on getting it done.

Sunday – Hit the old Iron Girl course again, with some mileage tacked on.  I hadn’t been feeling stellar the day before and was probably terribly dehydrated, so Liz and I didn’t quite meet our distance/time goal.  Just a little bit under, but we still got out there and got it done.

Planning for a better week this week.  Every mile counts.
