Bike to work - easy
Bike home from work - hard
20 minute swim - mix of freestyle and kick drills.
I felt pretty accomplished.
April issue out! Going to read it after my run, which is going to be on the treadmill today. My knee is still bothering me. It’s because I smacked it against the corner of my bed in the middle of the night. It was just getting better. It feels like runners knee, except it came on suddenly. Time to get ready! #runblr #fitblr #run #running
Back at it after an impromptu 2 weeks off. 1 week because of a nasty stomach virus and then because of a week of really nasty menstrual migraines that attacked me in succession. My knee is better though. Hurray! I thought id be back at it slowly but started with some speed work because I felt really good. Don’t worry! I took it pretty easy. It was easy because I’m 10lbs lighter! That definitely helps ;) now time for coffee and so much school work to catch up on. Can’t wait to get back into the pool though! #run #runblr #runner #fitblr
Speed-work day! Went a lot better than expected. 2 sets of 4 x 0.25 miles with appropriate recovery times between. Time for some nice hot soup and a little relaxing. Then I head over to the bf’s place where I’ll study for the afternoon. He’s making me pasta tonight! Secret Italian family recipe that he asked his nonna to teach him to make. :) I’m one lucky runner <3 #runblr #fitblr #runner #run
Did another speed work session today. Probably not ideal to do them back to back but I wanted to beat the piles of snow. I still ended up having to deal with some slippery-ness but I was really pleased with my run. Good stuff! And not that cold at all. It’s -18 with the windchill I think but it’s really not so bad. Or maybe my body is really getting used to it. #run #runblr #fitblr #snow #winter
Super productive day! I actually think this disrupted sleeping pattern with lack of sleep is helping me. Is that even possible? I woke up after a choppy night of sleep, fed Zoe, took care of all that puppy stuff, made coffee, packed my bag, did my speedwork, showered, got dressed and went to class! Good day! I’m already looking forward to my next pool day. I think I might even go 3 times next week! I’m thinking of also joining the gym again, mainly just for the group classes. Going to head there this weekend for info and prices. Now time for dinner! In all the busy-ness of today I actually didn’t eat. Oops….my coffee filled me up oddly enough and the energy bar I packed as a snack during class was GROSS. Better luck next time. Haha #fitblr #runblr #productivity #motivated
