Week in review February 23-March 1: A bit of everything

A pretty good mix.
Another not-too-shabby week. I had a pretty good spread of swim, bike and run, with some other stuff thrown in there, too. I made some gains in the pool and hit the treadmill five times for some decent running mileage.

Swim: Three times this week, all in the pool, for about 3.25 hours. This included some decently-paced-for-me 100s and a 1000-meter time trial that took a full 4:05 off last month's time. I finally have proof that I'm making progress and it feels good.

Bike: Three times this week, all on the trainer, for 4.75 hours total. Not a whole lot to write about here -- I just tried to focus on sustaining a harder effort instead of zoning out to Netflix yet again.

Run: An excellent week -- 32 miles! That includes five runs: two easy, an MMD, a speed and an LSD, for a total of just longer than 5 hours. It's my best week since I was running outside (sob!) in December, and the third time I've hit at least 30 weekly miles this year. Not shabby at all!

Five hours on the treadmill means I've watched a LOT of Netflix lately. (I try to save it for the treadmill, since I can't zone out and start moving slower like I can on the bike.) I made it through most of Arrested Development in the past week and a half, and I REALLY don't want to have to find another show before it warms up. I'll take recommendations, just in case -- Orange is the New Black? Scandal? Sherlock?

Weights: One body/heavy weights session and one video for about 2 hours total.

Plyo: One 20-minute session after each weights session for about 40 minutes total.

Yoga: One mini session of about 30 minutes.

Pre-hab: Nothing this week.

Total: Almost 16.5 hours this week, 

I really don't have anything bad to say about a week where I nail all my swim/bike/run/weights/plyo and even do a bit of yoga in there, although I wish I would have time for at least one pre-hab session. Oh well -- back at it for another week. Here we go.


  1. The BBC version of Sherlock is excellent! I couldn't get into Orange is the New Black, but my wife, sister, and mother all enjoyed it.

    1. Yeah, I think Sherlock is the current front-runner. I kind of don't want to get into OITNB just because of the bandwagon.
