Transitioning into Week 4

I wasn't to thrilled with my training this past week, but I was pleased to get in my 5 miles yesterday with no pain and minimal soreness in the thighs. Only two runs, 1 spin session, and 1 swim. That left me with 4 days of rest. Not necessary. But, life sometimes gets in the way and conferences on Thursday did a doozy on me.

This coming week is going to be another challenge. But who isn't up for a challenge? I was trying to figure out what my week was going to look like and I believe my long run drops and consists of a whopping 2.5 miles. I can handle that. No biggie. But, we have conferences again Tuesday that goes until 8pm (which means no spin class), Wednesday I have CPR training until 7:30 (which means I won't swim), and then I head to the cities on Friday. I am hoping that I will either be able to go to the gym with my sis, or it will be nice enough to do a short jaunt through her neighborhood Saturday or Sunday. I guess I will just play it day by day and do the best I can!

I did swim this morning. The "schedule" called for 1600M, I did half. I really focused on my endurance and using my arms with better form. I refrained from using my legs as much as I could. I ended my swim with a couple good sprints. All in all, my arms were very tired when I was done.

OSN: 800M
approx. 25 minutes

I will leave you with this pic. My friend took it Friday night at the concert. Some guy thought that he need to point out is KISS knowledge with my shirt! It was amazing how many compliments I got on that shirt! hehehe.

Sometimes being the sober one and watching all the drunk people is a lot of fun!

Hope you have a great week!

Hah...love the shirt!!!!!

Way to get 'ir done this week. And I hear you on the pool thing. Building endurance in the water is quite the challenge.

Great workout! I love the GnR song you have playing. Unfortunately, my little Buddy is sitting in my lap as I type/browse blogs and he said, "I not like that, mama."

"Oh, but I like it, Buddy."

"No. I not like that. Turn it off, mama."

Alas... I did as requested. boo hoo

Wow! You had a great run and then followed it up with a good swim! Those late niters can get exhausting! FYI: You are NEVER too old :-) Just depends on how long it takes to recover!!

Ah, it sucks when life gets in the way of workouts. I looked at my schedule this week too and realized I only have mornings as an option...so it's out of bed at 5...sigh...
