I am still considering Ironman vs. Ultra (can’t I have both?!?) but for now I am dedicated to focusing strength training and building back my base fitness.
I am trying something new this time to help me keep on track with strength training. Strength training often takes a backseat to swim-bike-running but this time I am committed to building strength before jumping into a full on training plan. To help keep me on track I singed up to do a 21 Day Fix with Nicole as the Coach . So far it has really helped me prioritize strength training and I have really enjoyed being part of a group.
Last week was not a perfect example of what a week should look like but with just returning to work and baby’s first cold =( other things had to be prioritized.
Monday: Unintended rest day, spent the day cuddling with Cannon and visiting the Pediatrician. He is doing so much better now but seeing him not feel well breaks a new mom’s heart.
Tuesday: Quick run on the treadmill and Upper Fix (upper body strength training)
Wednesday: Lower Body Fix
Thursday: 3.5 mile run in the morning and Pilates Fix in the evening
Friday: 25 minute spin on the trainer (oof, it’s going to take sometime to get used to the bike again)
Saturday: Pumpkin Patchin with the family =)
Sunday: 6 mile run
Total: 6 hours training (not worth breaking down, and sadly NO swimming….sigh)
Overall I think the week went fine but there is lot’s of room for improvement, already looking forward to doing better this week!
