So…I have dropped the ball. Initially because I wasn’t really training yet, but also because I just let January get away from me. It happens, and I can honestly say that in January I regularly chose sleep over many other things that I could or should have been doing.
But anyways, my first week of training for Silverman was the first week of February (2/3/14 – 2/9/14). It was a good introductory week and I got in many of my planned workouts, although not nearly enough time on the bike.
In total, I closed out my week with:
5 hours and 47 minutes of training:
20.74 miles of running
1,600 yards of swimming
45 minutes of spinning
35 minutes of abs & strength training
Week 2 (2/10/14 – 2/16/14) went about the same as week 1. My left calf and shin started hurting so I tried taking it easy to let the leg heal. It didn’t work, so I am now in the midst of week 3 and haven’t run at all. And, once again, this week can be characterized by saying that I did not get nearly enough time (::ahem:: none) on the bike.
Bonus points for actually getting in the pool – twice! – though.
In total, I closed out week 2 with:
5 hours and 22 minutes of training:
16.82 miles of running
3,300 yards of swimming
60 minutes of yoga
50 minutes of abs & strength training
…we cleaned the apartment and I feel so much better about getting everything else done.
…I tried biking with the boyfriend but through a weird series of events wound up injured and unable to complete my ride.
…my local sports store is having a sale until the first snow in Tahoe. I scored two new practice suits for 20% off.
…I’ve watched four episodes of Alias this weekend, and each one makes me wish that I was in shape and good enough at martial arts to travel around the world as a CIA agent.
…my boyfriend is making lasagna for dinner. From scratch. I’m excited.
So tell me…what did you do this weekend?
Wednesdays will be where I recap my weekly workouts. My workout week typically spans Monday through Sunday, giving me two days to recap the week. The format is still in flux, but hopefully I’ll settle into a pattern in the near future.
January 1 – 5
Total time: 1 hour, 13 minutes
Total distance: 8.0 miles
Not too bad, especially for a holiday week. I also spent Friday and Saturday walking around downtown Carmel and Monterey as well as quite a bit of time at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Such a great family vacation weekend that ended with 3.5 sunrise miles in the Carmel Valley with my father and MP.
