This past week has been one of the busiest weeks I can remember before the ski season starts! With my biggest week behind me (almost 26 hours!) and one recovery week till I left, I thought I would be cruising till the long van ride out west. Boy was I wrong. The week started with my 31st Birthday on Monday, I spent the morning alone skiing and running for 4 hours and fifteen minutes!!! It was a beautiful day and I loved every minute of it. As soon as I got home I rushed off to my first clinic of the week!
As Tuesday rolled around I had an off day from training but the whole day was filled with errands for the rest of the fall and early winter travel. Brian and I attend a Minneapolis Park Board meeting that discussed the future of Theodore Wirth Park (the park we live by) and what would become of silent sports within the park boarders. We brought Jerry, Quinn, Adanis, Javarii, Neshaa, and Antarea to speak on behalf of the local youth. The kids are excited about the possibility of a mountain biking facility that would allow them to meet up and use bikes whenever they want.
Wednesday was another training day, speeds with Audrey! Followed by a clinic with the Washburn High School Ski Team. Brian and I both went and lead the group on a 2 mile run followed by agility and plyos in the gym. We made the kids work and they were all sore the next day.
Thursday was a great day of training with the boys.
Friday was training and working at the super fit event.
Saturday was a 5K race followed by more work
Sunday...Well today I am exhausted. I could only train a little bit this morning and my legs are beat. Hopefully I bounce back before next week!
