Well, it has arrived: My first recovery week. I thought it would free up time to catch up on work and household stuff before I dive in for another three weeks (including the annual canoe camping trip with Dr. Z.), but as it turns out, I'm busy as ever with tri stuff:
Monday: Short swim - only 1200 yards, but any time saved was more than lost with my rest week chiropractor visit. (As it turns out, my upper back was screwed up and I really needed it.)
Tuesday: Short bike, but once again, any time saved was taken up by stopping at the tri shop to see about my new bike.
Wednesday: Regular distance run, so no time saved at all.
Thursday: VERY short swim. This will be the one day I save time.
Friday: My first full DAY OFF since training started. Time saved? HA! I have my bike fitting in the morning (Probably a couple hours), followed by a one hour sports massage in the afternoon.
Saturday: Shortened bike ride, but there's an extra Karate class. Not tri stuff, but still - BUSY.
Sunday: Short run. Okay, I'll save time here. Unless the new bike is ready, then I'll be busy fussing with her and getting her on the trianer.
So, yay for rest weeks? I guess? LOL!
