Well, now that we’re officially in the future, it’s time for me to catch up on my workout recaps. For the past two weeks. Because I have been lazy.
Week of 10/5
Monday – Rest Day
Tuesday – Easy 3 mile run. Did this while talking on the phone. I think perhaps I go a bit too easy.
Wednesday – Bike Speed Workout. It’s a good thing I love my trainer because looking ahead, I’m going to be spending a TON of time on it this winter.
Thursday – Team Fight Swim. I was so fatigued throughout this entire swim. I did it, but man, I was tired. Usually I perk up during these, but not today.
Friday – Massage and Army Ten Miler expo
Saturday – Easy 10 minute shakeout
Sunday – Army Ten Miler!
Week of 10/12
Monday – Rest Day
Tuesday – I was clearly starting to get sick by this point. Skipped my workout and went to bed.
Wednesday – Skipped life today and spent it on the couch.
Thursday – Did an easy 45 minute bike in hopes that I was recovering. Was definitely still exhausted.
Friday – Late choir rehearsals. Where I had no voice.
Saturday – Easy 90 minute bike ride. Felt good to sweat it out, but this was harder than it should have been.
Sunday – Choir concert where I had 90% of my voice back. Then sleep.
One thing that I’ve learned going back through my workouts is that I can clearly see where I was getting sick. I think that by the Thursday before Army Ten Miler, my body was fighting something off. Swim was much harder than it should have been. I probably should have upped my Vitamin C and made sure I was getting a ton of rest and fluids to try to ward it off. It also explains why my ATM was more sluggish than I anticipated. I wasn’t pushing by any means, but I thought that a natural pace would have been faster given my training.
(Also, Timehop has shown me that I apparently get a killer cold right around this time every year. I should mark this on my calendar and just wear a face mask through all of October.)
