Happy Mother’s Day, everyone!  I hope have/had a wonderful day!

I have mixed feelings about my training this week.  I had high hopes for higher running mileage and getting back in the pool, but I am still tired from Eugene.  I started off the week somewhat hard, only to feel somewhat unmotivated and just down right tired towards the end of the week.  It was a big reminder that my body needs a good 2-3 weeks of recovery after such a long event.

Sunday:  Bike about 44 miles; most of the Boulder 70.3 half ironman course.  Very hilly!  Then, I ran with Lucy for a mile right after.  It took us about 18 mins, which included two potty stops, bird watching, chasing a cat and watching another dog play frisbee.  She gets distracted easily, but when she wants to run, those little legs move quick!

Monday:  Lift, then 30 mins on the treadmill.

Tuesday: Bike to work! Ran 4 miles at lunch, lifted in the evening.

Wednesday:  First workout since the marathon:  5*2 mins with 75 seconds rest.  Not bad, but I definitely felt rusty.  Weights/core at lunch.

Thursday:  Completely unmotivated to do anything in the morning, so I slept in.  Got home from work a little later, but I got in 30 minutes on the treadmill.

Friday:  Still unmotivated in the morning.  Planned to run at lunch, but went out with my department instead.  I did get in a very slow 3 miles after work, but it was beautiful and refreshing. Plus, it was my first run in a test pair of Newtons!

Saturday:  Gorgeous bike ride north of Boulder, followed by a 20 min run.  Everything felt good–no kinks or soreness.  Felt good to do a short brick!

Weekly Totals:

Running:  23 miles

Swimming:  Big, fat 0  (This needs to change next week)!

Biking:  97 miles

Weight Training:  90 minutes
