Active Recovery - Could someone tell me who came up with the term “Active Recovery” and why is it on my plan this week? Ha! Monday called for an Recovery-Day with an 1100 meter swim session. In my mind a “Recovery Day” should only involve resting in my pj’s on my couch while being served fablous foods and enjoying amazing movies. I live in a dream world! In reality my day involved working all day (LOVE my job) and then heading to the pool like a good girl. I will note that I was out cold by 9pm after having a chilled beer while watching The A-TEAM.My husband the nut :)
Short Cuts – not in my training but in my prep for training. After shopping this week Scott and I seperated out smoothie mixes and then placed them in the freezer. Just grab a zip-lock bag, protein powder, and a bit of milk and presto! May not seem like much but every little bit of time saved adds up somedays.
Looking Ahead – I just took a quick glance at some of the training I have in the next three weeks and realized that I get a sweet recovery WEEK 02/20 – 02/26. Now it is one of those “Active Recovery” weeks thingies BUT I do get Saturday and Sunday OFF. From the looks of the week following it I will take it because it gets a little more interesting in numbers. Play-Time is almost over folks…. J.
On tap for the weekend….
Saturday – Long Run (they are getting longer and longer and I am loving it)
Sunday – Long Bike and short run
Cheers to all!Robin
