I spent New Years in Kelowna with my younger sister and then came right back to the island on the 1st. This week was the first week of weight training on the legs. Needless to say, the few days after my first session made me feel old being unable to move very much without my ass or legs hurting. All is good this weekend though.
Yesterday involved a 2.5hr bike and an easy 35min run. Today was a little harder on the legs but they are still going strong. Started out at mt doug with Nick and ran for 100mins, followed by a quick stop to grab a coffee, and then hit the gym for a 90min weight session. Came home, ate some leftover Moroccan lamb soup that I made last night, had a rest, then headed out the door for a 90min cross ride. It was fun and I got good and dirty. Back home to an ice bath and some stretching and dinner!
So tomorrow I start school, again... It's been a while since I had regular classes (almost 2 years in fact!) as grad school classes were very informal, very unlike the regular routine. I think having a routine outside of training will be better and create a better overall balance. Pioneer 8k is next week, ALREADY! I can't believe where time goes! Not sure where I will be time-wise, but we'll see closer to the day on how the legs are doing.
That's all for now. I'm waiting for a few things before getting my schedule finalised for racing this year, but I will have it up soooooon! Happy New year!
