Once again, I’m fundraising for Team Fight and the Ulman Cancer Fund. I’m kicking off my fundraising with a Stella & Dot show. If you’re interested in shopping, check out the site. 25% of the sale (all of the Stylist proceeds) are going to UCF. If you want to just make a straight donation, click on the image in my side bar or click here. Now, on to the recap.
After a week of snow and concert rehearsals, things were finally back to normal last week.
Monday – Choir rehearsals. Yep, no rest for the weary.
Tuesday – Team Fight Swim. We did a lot of kick drills. It was a killer workout. I was dying. But it felt awesome anyway.
Wednesday – FTP test. I really thought this would go terribly. Given the kick drills the night before, this couldn’t go well. And yet it went really well and I added 4 watts to my FTP. This basically means I’m getting better and my workouts are going to get harder. So it’s sort of a win-lose situation. (I originally typed “win” as “wine” and maybe it’s a wine situation too.)
Thursday – I was Burned. Out. Long day at work, late lunch, exhausted from the FTP test. I’m doing my best to not skip workouts, but I needed the night off. So I did an easy walk (to the delicious chicken restaurant in my neighborhood), had a tasty dinner, and went to bed early.
Friday – Had an easy crosstraining day on the schedule, but opted to pick up Thursday’s missed 5 mile run. Since I get off work early on Fridays, I felt comfortable running outside. My legs were still dead, possibly because I didn’t do enough on Thursday. Gotta keep moving or things tighten up. But I survived.
Saturday – 2 hour training ride based on my fancy new FTP. Ouch. But it was awesome nonetheless.
Sunday – Easy 7 mile run.
Next week? TAPER!
