Wow, I have had a great week of strength/core training. Here’s the recap:
Tuesday – Throwback YMCA lunch workout (also under 30 minutes) with a Crossfit kind of feel.
Wednesday – Functional Core Training at SmartCore Fitness
By Thursday I could tell my body needed a recovery day. I opted to go for a short run before work just to loosen up my legs and hopefully work out some of the soreness from the week. Yes, I was extremely sore from SmartCore, but like I have said before, being sore is a sign that I worked outside of my comfort zone. Love that.
I have started to realize over the years that it is very difficult for me to dial it down (even when I intend to recover), so my pace was much faster than I really wanted it to be. Either way, it was just what I needed to clear my mind before work. Isn’t it funny how doing something for just less than thirty minutes can significantly impact the way that you approach your day?
I had to work from home Thursday, mainly because my daughter was not feeling well. We still had a few leftovers from the week, so I threw together a hodge podge lunch of grilled chicken, roasted squash, baked sweet potatoes, some cooked carrots, and a little bit of cheese. I love to get creative with food. Hence why most of my recipes don’t really have an accurate list of ingredients. When you are in a time crunch, the last thing you want to do is measure things out. This was ready in five minutes.
Friday workout – After several days off the bike and away from Flywheel (plus a recovery day), I was ready to ride this morning! I love doing short intervals rides, but the ride this morning was more of a long, progressive acceleration ride. Think long flat sprints mixed with long heavy hill pushes. How do these 5:30AM classes seem to go by so fast? BIG torqboard competition which led to big numbers. Great work!
GET THIS – My Saturday schedule will change next week. We added a 6:15AM slot to Saturdays that is all mine now! I can’t even begin to tell you how pumped I am about this.
