This was supposed to be my big push week - 16 hours of training, leading up to my recovery week in week 4. I was excited to put in the extra time if I could, and go into week 4 ready to rest and recover (well, relatively anyways - week 4 is down to 8.5 hours of training).
I also didn't want to put my training before the rest of my life - so when it came down to it, I ended up listening to my body and what was happening on Sunday and decided to leave well enough alone - I didn't get the hours in but I feel really good about my effort for the week - no regrets!
- bike 13 miles to work and back
- 4.5 mile Tempo Run
I ended up not having enough workout hours for the week - I thought I might go out for a long bike ride or something to make up for it... but I was so wasted that I decided crewing for my husband's race more than made up for the lost workout hours. Also, it was my son's 15th birthday - so I just said enough is enough and this week is done!
