The Sunday Report

Hey, there, friends.  It's been a weird week for me.  I woke up on Monday with a cold, and was glad this week was a recovery week.  I ended up taking 3 days off completely, and my nutrition was TERRIBLE!!!  For some reason, the less I train the more I want to eat.  What's that all about??  Does this happen to anyone else?  It's almost like with more training comes more resolve in every area.  I also spent a lot of time worrying about missing workouts because of being sick.  Coach Mary reassured me over and over that it was the right call, but I kept feeling like I should make them up.  I'm just glad it was a low-volume week to begin with.

Ryan ended up having a snow day on Thursday and Friday, and the whole week was just a weird week for me, physically and emotionally.  I just checked my schedule for the upcoming week, and it is awesome!!  Can't wait to get back in.  Fortunately, I am feeling much better, so I should be able to hit every workout and my nutrition for the week.

Here are the numbers:


Bike: 2h 25m 14s 18.04 mi
Run:  1h 1m 17s 6.01 mi
Swim: 1h 2600 yards
Strength: 30m
 
Total:  4h 56m 31s

I had a lot of comments on my snow day pancake post...if you haven't tried those pancakes yet, you should!!  I also thought I would show some proof that I should add master snow-fort-builder to my extensive resume.  You be the judge!!


Those are icicles that were growing on our house.


Seriously...the fort is pretty good, but the kids are cuter than ever.

  1. The snow fort rocks! Two questions, though...will it stand up to non-stop bombardment of snowballs "Elf" style? ...and... Can you build equally cool sand castles? :-)

  2. As you know, it was a weird week for me too. Maybe we can blame it on the full moon! Love the snow fort!

  3. I totally do the same thing nutritionwise... do much better on a good training day than on a rest day. :) And I'm the same about feeling like I need to make it up, but as we know you can't!!! :) Sounds like your body needed to rest. Way to listen to it!!!
