It’s hard to believe I got back from vacation over a week ago…
It was a whirlwind, amazingly fun, five-day trip which I’ll post pics and details on about soon. I event kept up with my workout schedule on vacation and added about a half day’s walking around Boston to the list!
In the meantime, let’s talk about how something happened last week that has had me kind of… stressed out.
I got sick.
I got a cold that started with a sniffle, then became a day of sneezes, which then morphed into a sinus headache and congestion, and made its way down into my lungs where it settled for several days.
All of this, just over a week before my first triathlon.
Luckily, after a week of rest, taking vitamins, and good eating, my cold is on it’s last legs. (Phew!)
So now into my last five days before the race, I am working to kick the last bits of the cold out of my system and get back up on my workouts.
Some exciting news from this past weekend will add a new dimension to my out-of-the-gym workouts, but more on that later.
Here is my workout schedule for this week – the last and final week leading up to my race!
Sunday: Rest Day
- AM – BodyRock (BR): Workout Mashup – Grand Theft Booty & Counter Strike
- PM – 30 min jog/run
- AM – BR : Take Me Exercise Challenge
- PM – 10 mile bike ride
- AM – BR : Quantum of Sweat Workout
- PM – 12 mile bike ride
Friday: Active Rest Day
- 7:30 AM – The race begins…
I’m officially canceling my gym membership after my PT session tonight, so hopefully I can take that money and put it towards some new exercise equipment for home soon too!
Any tips for race-week preparation?
