I hope y’all had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend. Mine consisted of lots of sweat sessions, lots of pool time (which was really another sweat session), $1 margaritas and other perfect randomness.
For the first time in forever (really just 3 months, but seriously, that feels like forever), I was able to get a good workout in every day this weekend. The heat and humidity of summer have definitely arrived, but I embraced them fueled by my little box of happiness.
Friday: 2800 m swim
4×50 IM (1 lap of each stroke)
5×200 (I mixed these up- some free, some pull, some kick)
6×100 (off free, even stroke)
Saturday: 21 miles cycling (outdoor) Rode with the Lifetime Fitness Cycle Club. Small group this week since IMTX was last week, but it was great to be back out there. I still love my new bike!! I wanted to ride longer, but Batch had another commitment so we did the really short route.
Sunday: 6.3 miles running LATE start = HOT temperatures. As I mentioned above, summer has arrived and it’s brutal out there. I stuck it out repeating my motto that I never regret a run– even when the run isn’t as great as I’d hoped it would be.
Monday: 2400 m swim
6×300 (200 free + 100 kick with 20 sec rest)
I ran again this morning (7.4 miles- longest run post-injury!), but I think claiming Tuesday as part of my “killer weekend” is taking things a little too far.
The good news with all these workouts? I’m sore, but only the “good” sore not the “I still have a nagging injury” sore. SUCCESS! I’ve also taken the plunge and signed up for a race. Some friends and I will be running the SFM 1/2 (1st half) on July 29th. I’m super excited but also a little nervous. I’ve mentioned how flat Houston is right? Looks like I’ll become very familiar with the levees and parking garages around town between now and July.
How did you celebrate the long weekend?
