Sunday night I decided it was time for a run. Let’s see what a big loop around the neighborhood will entail.
1.59 miles is a big loop around the neighborhood. Good for a warmup, but I’m going to have to find more distance. For not having run in almost a year, I was happy with the 8:34 pace, but it’s going to have to get faster…. and longer….
Weight training. This is one of the few times in the year (pre-season) that I will actually lift. Once the season gets going, #1 There is little time to lift and #2 We’re doing so much other physical activity, it doesn’t seem right to lift. I will be sure to post my full body triathlon workout on the training tips page.
Longer run. So the 1.59 mile thing wasn’t working for me and, since the shop is closed on Tuesday and I didn’t have to work my other job, I thought I’d go for a longer run. 3.87 mile at a 9:15 pace, Eh. Not bad but I have to remember that I’m starting all over again. That is perhaps the most frustrating part of this whole process
AWESOME! Laura decided to come to a gentle Yoga class with me at the St Michaels YMCA. Though it is gentle, the stretching is just what I need. I find that between Yoga and Chiropractic work, I always have a great season!!
DAY OFF – WHAT?!? A day off already? Yes. I know that the body needs time to rest. Without that, it will break down and the training will cease. A day off is just what I needed.
The kids are sick but fortunately Laura wants me to do this too so… I’m able to get out and do another weight workout tonight. I’ll do the weights about 2-3 times a week for the next two months, just to kickstart the muscles again.
Reality. The kids are sick. I have to open the shop at 10am and be at my police job by 4. When will I ever get a workout in? Fortunately the St Michaels YMCA is right around the corner and I’m able to jump in to a 45 minute core conditioning class with the Director, Tracey. Great job! Now to get to the shop and maybe get a bike up on a trainer.
HOPE TO GET A LITTLE SADDLE TIME (RIDE THE BIKE) THIS WEEKEND. iT SHOULD BE BEAUTIFUL!!!
