What’s In a Week

on March 19, 2015

Howdy! A week has passed with a lot of workouts and a lot of work!

Over the past week, the hubby and I have been working on starting to paint our house. All of my “catch up on things” time (aka: nap times and after the B goes to bed) has been filled with trying to get a section of the house painted or absolutely crashing on the couch. For the most part it has been going great! I have been able to get a few walls done here or there and eventually that will all come together and turn into a house being done. Talk about an upper body workout! Geez!!!

We were able to get most of the prep work finished up last weekend (most). Somehow, we were also able to get some pretty stellar workouts in as well. Both Saturday and Sunday I went out on the bike with the purpose of crushing myself. I was successful. I knew I was racing the clock and the “To Do” lists, so both rides were fast! Saturday I did and hour and twenty minutes at just below my threshold and followed it up Sunday with just over 2 hours at a little less power. On dirt. Hurt soooo good! IMG_6042

During the week, I spend most of my bike time with the Thule trailer behind me and while that adds a lot of resistance, it is a different type of workout (like repetitive leg presses!). It was super nice to rail corners and accelerate hard on punchy climbs. My love language

This weeks workouts are a little less exciting. Went out Monday for an easy spin after the weekend, took Tuesday completely off, ran 4 miles at a decent pace with the dog yesterday morning and then went out for about 45 minutes at base wattage with Brooke and hit up a park yesterday. It is pretty cool today (funny how if the calendar says Spring, you expect it to be warmer and become a wuss) and it is making it really hard to become motivated to do much of anything. Thinking about hitting up the dreaded trainer tonight after the little goes to be for some easy spinning. I miss last week…when our workout fashion included shorts!

I am desperately looking forward to Saturday morning. Ken has offered to do breakfast with Brookie in the morning while I ride in to Boulder to do a little climbing (on the bike). I have not climbed in so long and it could either be amazing or hurt like crazy. Too bad I have to come back down after the climb 😛 Not my fave part! Should be a fun test. There is a race in less than a month that I am still weighing my participation in….the climb may sway me one way or another!

Hope your Thursday is a blast. It is the official start of my Spring Break! Wooohooo more time to paint and the sun should return tomorrow!!!
