To My Arsenal I Add Yoga

Happy Friday everyone!  Our favorite day of the week is finally here!  Except for maybe Saturday.

Had another great session with my personal trainer yesterday.  We (or I should say “I”, she didn’t do any damn work!) did another 7 minute spinning circuit (great workout if anybody was wondering), followed by ab circuits and arms/shoulders.  We seemed to really hit the legs and abs hard yesterday which I never complain about.  It’s probably the areas that will continue to need the most work in order to make through these future races.

Almost There!

Happy Thursday everyone!  Just one more day until Friday and then the weekend will be upon us.  Can’t wait!

So, I ended up missing my workout yesterday.  Work stuff unfortunately got in the way of letting me get out of the office for an hour.  I wasn’t 100% disappointed because my legs felt dead tired yesterday and I’m not quite sure why.  Not sore or injured.  Just tired.  On Monday, I did a heavy leg and cardio workout with my personal trainer followed by sparring in the evening so I’m sure that contributed.  But after a relatively light workout on Tuesday I was surprised to still be feeling fatigue on Wednesday.

Either way, I’m feeling pretty good today.  I’m a little nervous about how my knee will feel but it’s usually only affected by running.  We won’t be doing a lot of that today so I think we’ll be OK.  Mondays tend to be more cardio and lower body while Thursdays are more upper body.

Date Night!

I don’t know about you but this weekend couldn’t have come fast enough this week.  This week seemed to drag on forever but Friday’s finally here and I couldn’t be more excited because my wife and I are going on date night tonight for the first time in about three months (kids put a serious dent in your social calendar).  It’s just dinner and then meeting up with some friends afterwards but it’ll be great to just get some “us” time.

Good news first!  My knee which was giving me trouble the last couple of days feels fine today.  No issues, discomfort or tightness whatsoever.  My guard is still up though and I don’t want to rush back into anything so I’m thinking a short easy jog or a little time on the bike to see how it feels might be in order.  Tracey recommending seeing a doctor to get it checked out and given her history with knee problems it might not be a bad idea.  Either way, it’ll be an easy weekend for the joints as I try to nurse things back to health.  I’d say that this would be a good time to focus on the swim portion of triathlon training but the pool at the gym is out of commission for the next two weeks.  Bad break!
