Another week has gone by with enough interesting developments to merit a recap post!
On Tuesday I did a new record for longest swim workout using the ‘Ladder’ workout from Meals And Miles’ Swim Workouts Compilation. That was before breakfast, and I made it to a Gravity Machine class for lunch. If I had one more workout/form of exercise, I could have called it another Trifecta Tuesday, but since I didn’t, we’ll call it a #FAIL 😉
Those two workouts made me a little sore for Wednesday, but it was some of the nicest weather we’d had all year, so wild horses weren’t going to keep me from doing a Burbathlon! I wasn’t too intense on upper body strength exercises, but I did fit in lunges with a park swing, box jumps on a bench, push-ups, step-ups on a stump, balance beam on a few logs, as well as jumping and (simple-)vaulting some logs and a baseball diamond fence.
It starts with a hill and a path into the woods…. The Big Hill to Climb Dips in the trail… This pic was taken in a colder season… but you can see the lunge with a swing.
That all left me too sore on Thursday to do my planned workouts, so recovery it was… especially since I neglected to wear compression or foam-roll the night before.
Friday is a day of excitement. I tried out a bike workout hack that I’ve had rolling around in my head for a while, but you’ll have to wait to see it.. The rest of the weekend is jam-packed with activities and get togethers including initial planning this year’s Levac Attack and a Fitfluential Tweet-Up (or whatever we call get-togethers of online friends) to welcome Pavement Runner to Toronto, where he’ll be doing the Goodlife Toronto Marathon.
How was your week? Is your weekend full of fitness and excitement?
