I am so excited to finally be able to do a weekly workout recap again! I’m finally back into normal training without injury or travel (sorta) or anything else to get in my way. Here’s to recommitting. And being tired all the time. And hungry. So hungry.
Last week, I had to do a bit of finagling with my schedule to get almost everything in, but thankfully, I have a coach who understands that life sometimes gets in the way.
Monday (Memorial Day) – 90 minutes on the trainer. It was such a bummer that all my county lap pools were closed because it would have been a perfect day for swimming.
Tuesday – Walk/Run intervals. I’m still very slowly easing in to running with a solid warmup and cool down and a few 30 second bursts of running. I’m terrified every time, but I’m still pain free.
Wednesday – 60 minutes on the trainer. My coach does structured workouts that I can download into Zwift and I LOVE it. I love how Zwift guides you through the workouts. It’s so much easier than trying to keep my eye on my watch. I’m using it with a dumb trainer, so I still have to do the adjustments, but the screen alerts are awesome guidance.
Thursday – At PT today, my therapist spent a ton of time on my TFL, to the point where walking was hard afterwards and it was sore til… well, til yesterday. Needless to say, I did not run this day. I did walk a mile to and from PT though, so it wasn’t a total waste.
Friday – Pool time! I switch back and forth between a meter pool and a yard pool, which makes some of my drills seem so much harder. You don’t think about the difference being that big until you’re doing longer sets.
Saturday – More pool time, plus another walk/run set. Picked up the pool time I missed on Monday.
Sunday – I so wanted to be outside. But it poured. So much that at one point during the day, I was outside cleaning crap out of a drain so my basement didn’t flood. So I spent another 90 minutes on the trainer. Which I love, so that’s okay too.
Look at that! A full week of workouts. (Well, sorta.) I’m so happy to be back to full training, even if I’m just easing in to the running. I do miss my couch, but I finally feel like I’m normal me again.
