Week #4 Ironman Training

Week #4 Ironman Training
January 27, 2014 Jess

Swim, bike, run, snow, yoga, yoga, yoga.  The summation of week #4 as training ensued despite another snow storm mid-week bringing with it frigid temps for outdoor anything.  The day the storm hit I had a run on my schedule and like I’ve said before it takes a lot for this girl to run on a treadmill.  For me, I just can’t wrap my head around not going anywhere.  I know, completely contradictory to my accord with my bike trainer.  I’m sure it has everything to do with not owning a treadmill, driving to the gym and adhering to 30-min max times and sign up sheets.  I don’t want to have to limit, stalk or sign up to run, I just want to run.  And so I did on Wednesday within the 2-hour window that promised sun in the forecast.  A lengthy nap almost foiled my plan but alas I rose and ran.  It was hard core, not much room on the streets between me, the snow and cars.  Armed with my Road ID I stayed as cautious as possible.  Home safe, I felt accomplished and grateful.

The week capped off with the Bryan Kest workshop at Newport Power Yoga.  I attended 2 sessions on Saturday and closed out with a no joke power class on Sunday.  Suffice to say my areas of opportunity, hips and hammies, are recovering well.  A light swim today put some medicine on my wounds and I’m feeling good for week #5.
