First off, I’m excited to finally get to announce that I’m now part of the BibRave Pro team! If you’re not already familiar with BibRave, you should certainly check it out. It’s an amazing place to check out race reviews (and write your own). I know that when I’m considering a new race, one of the first things I do is check out what other people have had to say about the race, and BibRave has quickly become one of my favorite places to research. I’m excited to join the team (especially now that I’m racing again) and look forward to sharing the experience with you! I’ve got a new discounts page that you can find in my header menu where I will be sharing all sorts of race and product discounts.
Last week was my race recovery week and it went so well. Look at all that green in my training plan. It’s rare that I don’t have at least one yellow (almost always due to a slow swim) so that beautiful week of green makes me happy.
Monday – Rest day! Well, driving home from race day and doing laundry day. But no exercise, so it’s a win.
Tuesday – Easy run/walk. I had a bit of residual tightness. As I’ve gotten a lot of the major muscle groups strengthened in my legs/hips/glutes, a few pesky muscles have decided to make themselves known.
Wednesday – Trainer ride. This was a reminder that it is a recovery week. These were some tough intervals.
Thursday – Easy run/walk. Much easier than Tuesday.
Friday – Swimming! I think I may have a new favorite pool. It’s not as enjoyable of an experience, but I also don’t have to fight for a lane at 6am, so I may be switching my pool allegiance once my pass is used up.
Saturday – Trainer ride. I considered going outside and blatantly didn’t. Instead I rode inside and watched Coco and did not understand why people cried, then sobbed while doing my PT exercises as I finished up the movie.
Sunday – MOAR SWIMMING.
Boom. All green, all done, no pain. Gotta up that run game though. Slow and steady.
