Is it Monday already?
This weekend was quite busy and flew by (well don’t they all?)
Friday night Todd and I got a bottle of wine, had yummy leftovers and watched Breaking Bad on Netflix ( we are hooked!). I always love having a glass of wine on a Friday night, to help me decompress. Then by Saturday it was about getting down to business!
This was my long workout day! I was scheduled to ride my bike for 3.5 hours on the trainer. While I am just dying to get my bike outdoors, it’s still too cold and the roads are too messy. There is still tons of snow on the ground and cars can’t see bicycles around the large snow banks. For now, I will just have to wait. This being said, I rode indoors and figured out a way to make it more enjoyable. I placed my lap top in front of me (typically I just scroll through TV), went on Amazon.com and ordered some movies! I watched “Captain Phillips” which made the time go by really fast. After that movie was over, I switched to TV for the remaining hour or so of my ride. I’m definitely going to do that from now on!
Total ride time 3.5 hours, total miles 56
After my ride, We took Oliver to the pond for a walk. Since it was near 50 degrees out, we were really looking forward to it! Oliver had fun and met lots of puppy friends
In my training plan, Sunday’s are typically a short bike ride (with some sprinting bursts) followed by a long run afterwards. Since I still have not received the ‘green light’ to run, I headed to the pool to do my water running, then came home and got on the bike. The pool gets very crowded mid-morning, and I knew I had to get it out of the way before biking. Pool running can be verrrry boring, but music was playing and it made it go a little faster. For my bike ride, I did 1:15 on the trainer, with ten 30 second sprints thrown in there.
Total miles logged on the bike this weekend – 76! Wow it’s been a while since I’ve biked that long in a weekend.
How were your workouts this weekend?
