Today is my first day back to work after two weeks off. Man it’s hard to get back to the grind even when I LOVE my job and love the people that I work with. I would consider myself a morning person but when my alarm goes off at 4:20 am (seriously) it’s not fun. I got myself out the door and to the gym this morning for a quick 30 min tempo run and an hour of Body Pump. I have pretty much figured out my training plan for January (I just need to decide what my swim intervals will be).
The basic Format is:
Sunday: Long run 8-12 miles
Monday: Rest day with easy yoga in the pm
Tuesday: am interval swim and pm interval run 4-6 miles
Wednesday: Weightlifting class and long swim 2000 yards
Thursday: am spin class and pm yoga
Friday: tempo run with hill repeats 4-6 miles total
Saturday: Long bike ride, on the trainer for now between 60-90 minuets
** I will not be able to follow this Mon-Thur of next week given that I am in New York for a meeting and it is too far to get to a real gym so I can’t swim or bike. I can use the treadmill and elliptical in the hotel’s dinky gym and that will have to do.
All of this is very fluid and changes all the time. I am interested in going to a masters swim practice but I am a bit intimidated, have any of you ever been to one? Would you recommend it? Happy Humpday people!
