Here is the week in review:
Swim: 5300.00 Yd 1h 58m
Bike: 2h 28m
Run: 7.52 Mi 1h 15m 44s
Total: 5h 41m 44s
Flossing: haven't missed a day yet--my mommy would be so proud!
If you've been reading, you know this wasn't the best week for me, and that is definitely reflected in my training. I think my running took the biggest hit, although I did go outside this morning in the balmy 22 degree weather, and ran in the slushy snow with my new Yaktrax. They certainly helped, but it still was not like running on dry ground. At least I didn't trek all the way to the gym for my measly 4.5 miles today, though! I had a fantastic swimming week, and I have my new bike, Buttercup. I was able to hop on her yesterday for over an hour (split up into two sessions) thanks to V., who graciously lent me her trainer for a few weeks! (I better see you in cycle tomorrow, V.!)
The good thing about having a bad week is that it gives me some perspective. It helps me to realize I have to have strategies for pushing through when I'm not at my best. Most importantly, it makes me realize it's okay to be imperfect. I'm not failing if I have a bad week, I am being human, and that is the beauty of life.
