This week went nearly according to my plan- save for an unplanned rest day which made the weekend workouts more complicated because I didn't want to just eliminate the missed 90 minute cycling workout. I ended up splitting it up and completing the 45 minutes after each of my weekend runs. My back also started hurting pretty bad on Friday- I must have slept funny because it feels more like a muscular issue. By Sunday it was feeling much better, but still very present. The TP and myo balls have been helping a lot along with hot dead sea salt baths. I've had to back off on core work until it feels better.
Monday: 16 Mile Cycle
Tuesday: 6x800's for 7 miles
Thursday: 11 mile cycle, 2 mile run
Friday: 18 mile cycle
Saturday: 8 mile run, 12 mile cycle
Sunday: 15 mile run, 11 mile cycle
Which makes for a total of: 100 miles and almost 9 hours of working out. YAY.
Tuesday we went to the Sharks- Blackhawks game. It was our first hockey game at the United Center. We used to go to Sharks games while living in San Jose, and I've been to some Lightning games- but after 5 years we finally went to a game in Chicago! I bought the tickets as a christmas present for L, because the Sharks are his favorite team. We had a blast! I loved hearing the National Anthem- so different at the United Center, and enjoyed the game despite the Blackhawks loss. I was amazed that nearly everyone had something Blackhawks on. There was a handful of folks with Sharks gear on. It was such a fun experience, I know we will be back again for a game.
