So last week, was one of the first weeks that I fit in all of my workouts. There were a couple of modifications (i.e. only one day in the pool and only one day on the bike), but all in all? I felt really good all week long.
But, then we know that every rose has it’s thorn right? Right.
As I mentioned, all of my workouts! I did a great pool day, had four run days (total of 15.54 miles)
I took my bike off the trainer. Finally. I took it out on the roads. Felt really good. Need to bike more though.
And i finished a 5k! The women’s distance festival 5k was on Saturday – was tons of fun. Had I not ran the 1.5 miles to the start line from the Honda dealership where i dropped my car off for an oil change, I probably would have been sub-30 but. Alas. I spent all that energy in HUSTLING to get to the start line on time.
My legs are sore. Really, really sore. Try pushing 28 lbs of toddler in a 20+ lb stroller after riding 7.5 miles (and falling) after running nearly 6 miles in the two days before. That’s bad. Real, real bad. Nearly ugly but not quite…I just walked more.
Also, I’m not great at hydrating. Need to be better.
The fall on Bay Ridge Road after i dropped my water bottle and couldn’t un-clip fast enough. Thankfully, I didn’t fall too hard. My right clip is slightly…broken? So I can be pseudo-clipped in. Which is great and all to help me get out, but I need to remember to UN-CLIP my left foot. I’ve got a nice scrape on my knee and a bruise on my tricep, but other than that nothing was hurt but my pride (thanks to the passerby who stopped her car to ask if I was okay).

Proud that i was able to defer Dewey so I’ll be able to enjoy my pal’s bachelorette without feeling I pissed away $80 and instead a week later I’ll be doing the Frederick Women’s Sprint Tri which I’m pretty excited for. I really wanted to get in two tri’s this season – I had wanted to do an Oly but I’m just…not there yet. Maybe next year. Plus I have some big running races this fall – well not BIG like Marathon big or anything but you know…big for me.
