Out of Sorts

How is it that a recovery week has left me feeling more stressed and out of sorts than ever? I am training less hours but seem to have no time for anything!


I am on the tail end of this congestion funk that filled my head and chest last week. Yesterday was my first run since being sick. In a nutshell I ran 4 miles feeling some heaviness and weakness in my legs. Fuel would do me some good and as my appetite returns so will my strength. Enough whining!


Next week brings me to a new section of training. The hours increase and I begin to have more doubles throughout the week. So the fun stage is quickly coming to an end and I am excited about this next phase.


Snap Shot of the Week Ahead:

Monday – Swim, Bike

Tuesday – Run

Wednesday – Bike, Full Strength and Core Session

Thursday – Swim

Friday – Run

Saturday – Swim, Bike

Sunday – Run


*Add in a dash of yoga here and there*



Other notable happenings:


· Since beginning this Iron journey I am down 6lbs.


· My tri bike fit that I had last week has me in a much more aero-position. After my new stem comes in and the last adjustment is made I will then get busy becoming more comfortable riding in this new position.


· Our newest member, Tanner, is feeling more and more comfortable with his new home. After some freak out moments on my part yesterday I am feeling good again about this addition. It is seriously like having a new born in the house. Having to watch his every move as this cute little devil explores is very different for me.


Hope everyone is having a great week!

I don't think I lost a single lbs during im training. Thankfully I know people that gained weight!

I stayed steady.

How cute is Tanner? Sometimes it seems like the off weeks are worst because I try to fit everything in that I didn't have time for during the training weeks. It is just a vicious cycle of not enough time! UGH.
