The Week That Was

Tuesday: 0.5hr. treadmill run (lower half zone 2)
Wednesday: 1.0hr. run (top zone 2)
Friday: 1.5hr. treadmill run (lower half zone 2)
Saturday: 1.5hr. treadmill run (high zone 1)
Sunday: 2.0hr. treadmill run (0.5hr. zone 1; 1.5hr. lower half 2)

Saturday and Sunday nights I felt that the days' workouts hadn't left me with a lot of spare resources (Saturday I collapsed into bed at 7:30pm only to wake up for a couple of hours in the middle of the night). It's now Monday morning and I'm not feeling deepening recovery debt (nor inflammation), so I may be tolerating the ramp-up.

Perhaps tonight I'll do a recovery workout on the gear purchased over the weekend - a used Forza spinning bike. It turned out to be the best readily available option to ensure that Jenny can comfortably build/maintain general bike fitness during extended stays.

Testing gear ... always a good plan! (And nice to have some variation from the dreadmill.)

How nice of you! And being adjustable it should fit other visitors who might be interested in staying fit as well too, no? :-)

When you fall asleep super early and can't sleep through the night because of it, that is the worst!
