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.
