Umm, how it is the last weekend of January? Didn’t 2013 just arrive? Crazy! After completing a great indoor bike trainer ride and taking a trip to the Union Square Greenmarket yesterday, I spent today catching up on life—doing laundry and lots of meal prep like roasting veggies and sweet potatoes, plus making a batch of spicy black bean quinoa. I’ll share the recipe later this week!
In terms of upcoming workouts, the next seven days will take the form of a recovery week (as per Full Throttle Endurance’s training approach—three weeks building intensity, one week resting and recovering). Honestly, I have mixed feelings about backing off this week, mainly because I feel like my technique in the pool and power in the saddle seem to be clicking; however, I know this active downtown will help prevent injury and overtraining. Andrew also recommended getting a sports massage or visiting an acupuncturist this week, and I hope to get a massage (my first ever!) sometime on Wednesday. I also have a few FitFluential events this week, plus an appointment at Finish Line Physical Therapy for a complimentary performance baseline screening—and a chance to run on the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill! Here we go—Write It Down, Do It Up!
(If you’re new to WIDDIU, here’s how it works: Every Sunday evening, I post my workout schedule for the week, and I invite you to do the same. This way, we can motivate each other and hold ourselves accountable. Sounds like a win-win, right?)
Monday – a.m. run with Full Throttle Endurance (FTE); a.m. swim
Tuesday – a.m. run and strength train
Wednesday – a.m. bike with FTE; a.m. run or swim
Thursday – off
Friday – a.m. swim with FTE; a.m. run
Saturday – off
Sunday – bike and strength train
