Weekly Recap: 7/21 – 7/27

Heyo, Monday, you’re here again. This week was busy. Maybe not so much in terms of workouts, but I was busy.


Monday was a total rest day after Delta Lake. The race left me feeling kind of wrecked, so I needed a day to myself .

Tuesday I actually had a nice workout. Did a shake out brick indoors at the gym. I did 30 minutes on the spin bike and ten minutes on the treadmill. Nothing crazy, but I actually felt really good I and I wish I did 45/15 instead. A good workout really makes your whole day better, which is good because work has not really slowed down at all for me like I thought it would.

Wednesday became an unintentional rest day. Oh well, can’t win em’ all.


Yes please!

Thursday saw my first time back in the pool in a long time. My swimming was slipping so I figured it was time to get back at it. The pool had some filter issues for a few weeks and the state of the pool was being described as “vile” “disgusting” and filled with “hair and snot” so I took a break until they finally fixed it. Swimming, I missed you! I also got roped into playing on Husband’s rec league softball team for the second time. They were one girl short for co-ed, so I played outfield, ran the bases a few times, and just had fun getting out and playing.

Friday was my usual and aptly planned rest day.

Saturday is race day, whoop! I ran the Cubby Chase for the second year, although I did the 10k this year. Race report coming mid week, but to give you a sneak peak, it was hot, humid, and slow. Yup.


Upper body workout- check

Sunday… does hanging drywall count? After the Cubby Chase on Saturday and all day Sunday Hubs and I hung drywall in the basement. By the time we were done Sunday afternoon my arms and shoulder were tired and sore.

This week will probably look similar. I have Iron Girl on Sunday which will be my final race of my four straight weeks of racing. My poor calves are pretty tight and need some love between now and Sunday. But as long as the weather holds out I should be fine. IG Syracuse is basically my benchmark race, so hopefully I’ll see some improvements.

Anyone else race this weekend?

Favorite thing you did this weekend? Taking Griswold swimming, twice!

  1. No racing for me this weekend. My next race isn’t until September.

    The best part of my weekend was SUP (stand-up paddle boarding)!

  2. No racing for me this past weekend. I don’t have any races on the docket until early-September, which is only a 5k for Fallen Heroes.

    Favorite thing I did all weekend: spending time with friends on Saturday.

  3. I can’t imagine getting into a pool with filter issues. It would probably keep me out of the water for weeks. I am a germ freak when it comes to swimming and pools (probably not the best sport for me). Haha. I raced this past weekend and did the 10K leg for a relay triathlon team. It was a PR for me, so I am still pretty thrilled about it.
