goals for this week - be MINDFUL with food. Exercise as hips/back and pool closures permit :P we've been pretty much stuck at home since Friday due to a lot of freezing rain/ice/snow.

Very busy all week and let the tattoo heal up until Saturday - got one run in before the ice storm has made it unsafe. Don't think I'll set any goals for this week - whatever I can get in will do.
Happy holidays to all!

In 2014, I resolve to chronicle my workouts, so that I can contribute to these threads. At this point, it's all I can do to complete the S, B, R workouts that my coaches write, much less report back as to how they went...

I'll get in a run or swim tomorrow, probably Christmas morning I'll do a run, then nothing solid is on my non-running schedule through the end of the year so it will be a good time to ramp back up. I gotta get my eating back on track too. Ugh.

I had a great week - but went into it w tired legs.
Bike x 4 for 6.5 hours, long bike was 3 hours.
Run x 5 for 42 miles, long run was 15 miles
Swim x 4
core x 2
This coming week is recovery.
no goals, do a little something each day, and watch the food intake cause it can get crazy this time of the year.
Be safe and have fun. Happy training.
The kid's been away with her dad, so I had a few days to myself to hammer it.. so I did.
Fri - 50km pre-breakfast in PERFECT warm calm conditions
Sat -175km with some good rolling climby bits
Sun - 63km riding tempo on the wheel of a bike beast (one of my mates). 1k swim in the morning to shake the legs out.
Mon - rained:-( 8.5k run with the dog & a 2k swim
Tues - 182km at a steady pace & a little 3k brick at the end.
Today - about to head out for the traditional Xmas Day ride & another 50-60
Might have a day off after that and then a bit of a run block at the back end of the week.
Merry Xmas gals, I've enjoyed your company and thoughtful conversations over the year!!
Last week, started with me eating way more XMAS cookies than I should have, but the workouts went well.
5 runs - only 4 - too much snow and ice and no access to treadmill to get the 5th one in. Trail running has been a mudfest and really slow! It is quite the strength workout!
3 swims - score! Learned about drag socks from masters swim coach and I HATE them. But I will learn how to kick with them.
2 bikes - Yes! Including first ride outside in over a month.
2 strengths - done!
This week, continue to build run volume
5 runs - 2 done
3 swims - 1 done
Just finished making more XMAS cookies and a chocolate raspberry cake with white chocolate buttercream frosting. I hate to admit it but I licked that frosting bowl clean and it was good! I will have to ride the trainer for awhile tommorow to burn off all of those calories. Goal is to only eat one peice of that cake tommorow.
Happy holidays all!
We have a new masters coach who is really into turning us silly triathletes into real swimmers so he is really breaking things down for us. We are doing a kick focus right now and I have actually learned how to get some propulsion from my kick!
Here is a pair in action. We didn't do kick sets - we just did free.
Late in posting, but here goes.
Last week- the last week of work before 2 weeks off (benefit of working in a school environment) 2 runs, 1 bike, 1 stretch class & 1 team tri party & 1 mechanic's b-day party. didn't swim due to eye infection, so just took it easy.
This week-off work so looking to get a few more workouts in- it was iffy on the swimming due to the eye infection, which is just now cleared.
