The Sunday Report

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.

  1. Cereal's a big, big weakness for me, too. Seriously, I can eat 4-5 bowls in one sitting. Here's to hoping you can overcome!

    That IM Kona makes me want to move up my IM date from 2011 to 2010. But I won't. I must wait. I have to be patient and work my way up.


Woo-hoo!! I want to hear from you!
