Tri Training Recap: Week 8

by agirlandhermutt on June 23, 2014

This past week was the last week of the Tone It Up Bikini Series! I hit my 150 miles before Summer a week early and then…well, I just kind of lost a little steam. I’m not exactly sure what happened. At both work and home, I’ve been a little overwhelmed with the number of things I need to do. It isn’t really that much more than any other week, but when my triathlon is only 1 month out it just seems like more. Rather than buckle down last week, I just got worried about it? That seems counterproductive. And dumb. Like super dumb.

I made a pact with myself at the beginning of training that if I missed a workout or two, I wouldn’t beat myself up about it. However, totally slacking is not ok. I want to compete in the triathlon with no injuries and most importantly, not come in last. Seriously.

After a bit of fun in NYC (pics below!), I’m ready to tackle this last bit of training. Consistent and persistent. Let’s do this.


Week 8 Tri Training & Tone It Up Bikini Series

Scheduled: Off!
Actual: Off! I met up with my buddy, Megan, for a bite to eat after work. We sat in the patio area at Audubon Boston and had a lovely evening. After a super active weekend it was a much needed relaxation night.

Scheduled: Swim Lesson & Practice
Actual: Swim Lesson & Practice. Although not as much practice as I would have liked. The swim lanes are pretty busy when my class gets out. I just need to suck it up and wait for a lane to open!

: 50 min Bike; TIU Yoga & Abs
Actual: Nothing. I got home from work around 6:30 or so and was beat. I didn’t even think about doing any form of workout.

Scheduled: Swim Lesson & Practice; TIU Total Body 1 & 2
Actual: Swim Lesson & Practice.

: Pure Barre; 40 min Run
Actual: TIU Making Waves Cardio. The BF decided to take the whole day off before we left for NYC. I decided to skip Pure Barre and hit up the gym with him. It was a nice way to start the day!

Scheduled: I’ll be in NYC, but I will definitely do something!
Actual: Walk, walk, walk!

I even managed to mark one of my 34 While 34 items off of my list…Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge!

I was in NYC for the Thrillist Best Day of Your Life event. Basically a day of bar/restaurant hopping!

Scheduled: ??? Maybe yoga?!
Actual: Just a bit of walking. I woke up with a horrible sore throat and some kind of allergy/cold thing. I had plans to meet up with my NYC friend, Meg, but had to cancel. I was super bummed because she always is involved in some amazing workouts. Sigh. Next time!

Weekly Total of “Miles” for the Tone It Up #150bysummer Challenge: 12!
Total Miles: 166!
