How was your week? Nov 20/21 edition
Quote | Reply
So, how was it? Of course, I'm unable to do Dr. TC justice in getting us started.

I've got a week and two days left before my "retirement" starts. I'm already getting inquiries about doing contract work, so definitely going to be a "semi" retirement.

In spite of the craziness of wrapping up a long-term job, I got in 2 runs and a bike last week--on the newest member of the household:

Happy Thanksgiving week to the US womens!

Goals this week - day off from running, ride 2-3x, swim 5x

I did not take a day off from running. 50.7 miles total; decided to take Monday (yesterday) off to swim with a friend, and figured I'd have some days off during Thanksgiving week, so ran 7 days. Rode once... a 2 mile errand. Swam 7 times for 8375 yds.

Yesterday I swam 3400 yards, which is probably the only swim I'll get in this week. I taught my classes, drove to the airport, and flew to Salt Lake, where my brother lives :-) I am here for Thanksgiving... ran 6 miles around Liberty Park on the chipped trail with his border collie this morning. Love running with that dog! We're headed to the San Rafael Swell tomorrow, and I have no goals or plans for the week except to enjoy myself. I'm so happy to be with family for Thanksgiving.

Thanks for getting us started, Tri3. Glad Dr. TC was just busy :)

My goals last week were:
Three runs, three bikes, two or three swims, two strength sessions, a yoga class, and my daily p/rehab. I *might* do a local sprint this weekend mostly because it's Thanksgiving themed and there's pie at the finish line!


Work was nuts so I only managed two of my swims and one of my strength sessions but got the planned bikes,runs, and yoga. I did jump into the local race -- I helped my friend's nervous daughter navigate the scrum at the start of the swim (she's only thirteen but was in a wave with the adult women) and then had a good and very fun race myself (I hadn't ridden my tri bike or run off the bike since early September so that went about as well as you might expect).

This week is a weird one -- work is crazy, the holiday is crazy, and I'm going to try to camp and climb this weekend. I'll aim for 3 runs, 2 bikes, 2 swims, 2 strength sessions, 1 yoga and daily p/rehab plus some hiking and climbing.

Happy Thanksgiving to the US Womens and Happy Training to all!

Tri3 - is your saddle set really far back or is it a funky shape? Lovely bike btw, I'm glad you are enjoying it!
SoCal - good of you to jump in to help out your friend's daughter.

My goals for last week may have been rather over-ambitious given the timezone change fatigue I suffered (it seems wrong to call it jet lag because I went to bed and woke up at normal times, I was just sooooo tired). Instead of 4 trainer rides, 2 strength sessions. I managed 2 rides, one physio session (strength + running, nearly puked from the intervals she had me doing) and a standalone strength session.

This week: 5 rides (2 done), 2 strength sessions (1 done), 1 run. Some friends from the cycling club are celebrating their golden wedding anniversary at the weekend - I'm looking forward to that. Less than 2 weeks until our cycling trip to Arizona - I have been strava stalking the rides and I'm getting excited!

Hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving.

Thanks Scheherazade, it means a lot to me to have the opportunity to help other people be less nervous in the water!
She's a short-haired wispy tomboy who gets really anxious in the swim but is a decent cyclist and a strong runner -- reminds me of someone I used to know...

Happy cycling :D

Maybe you could run a ST Womens camp for nervous nellies like me. Not sure what would kill me first, the prospect of a shark or the waves. ;-)

Both. The saddle is set back as far as it can go. (I might move to a 10mm longer stem when I get a chance.) And it's a Sitero saddle (short nosed) with a neoprene cover on it.

Another 8 hour week for me.
Swims - 2x
Trainer - 3x
Strength workout with the trainer - 3x
Yoga - 1x

Definite strength gains! It's been too cold, or raining, or high winds (tornado sirens going off) to ride outdoors. I hate winter!

Just finished with my Power Hour in Masters' Spin class at work. A lot of watts in a short period of time feels good once in awhile. Next, I post and admit to the world my triathlon commitments for 2018!

Hi Tri3, thanks for taking the initiative and getting us started!! your new bike looks gorgeous. Enjoy your outings together.

Hello womens, hope all the US women had a fantastic Thanksgiving.

TC, hope you are having a great time with your brother and enjoying running with his dog. Will you be rock climbing this week?
Socal - enjoy your hiking and climbing trip! How's the belaying going? when I belay my DH I now use an Edelrid Ohm, they're amazing. He's 20kg heavier than myself and my feet are firmly on the ground.
Scherherazade, hope you are feeling better now and not so tired :-)
Ironclm, well done on yet another amazing week. You really are getting in some consistent training. It's getting cold here (Germany) too and I find myself training indoors most of the time too.
Sallyshortypnts, good luck with your race plans for the next two years. Hope you get to Kona :-)

I had a good training week last week run x5, bike x4, however I didn't manage to get myself to the swimming pool :-( I won't be too hard on myself though as I'm pleased with the bike and run workouts. This week I'm ill with a cold, bronchitis, and my asthma isn't too good either - always the same, as soon as my nose gets the sniffles my lungs want to play ill too!! I'm feeling better than earlier in the week, so hopefully I'll be well enough to do some sport again next week.

Hope everyone had a great week!
