This is just a snapshot of Week 1.
Week 1 started about 5 days earlier when I got back from Iowa for work and was able to get focused. That is also a big part of the New Years Resolution - BEING FOCUSED, in work, nutrition, training and play. I have felt all over the place last year.
Usually, I am flying solo in some of these workouts with a handful with friends. I started indoor field hockey two weeks ago (every Sunday) and figured this would have to be one of my "track" or "speed" workouts. I also had to revise my calendar so that a long run and swim falls on a Saturday and a long ride comes after my game on Sun. As much as I wanted to put a long run in the middle of the week based on some recent articles I have been reading (more on that in later post), I don't have the time with work to incorporate that especially since it gets dark earlier. So last week, I wanted to test this Sat/Sun before starting my plan.
Last sat I ran alone on the canal in a super muddy run that I swear prepared me for either a tough mudder event or maybe the Olympic long jump. Sunday I had a game at 11am and then was off to Christine's to do a Spinerval workout with one of her new tapes so I got the bike, the trainer, my stick, my gear and was off in the morning.

I got through my bike to nowhere by watching Star Wars while it snowed and sleeted on Sat....

On Sunday, the dreaded treadmill run for 9 miles was on the books (too icy out) so I was able to go with Nicole and run next to each other and then hop off and get into the pool for a super relaxing 1900 meter swim.
I was pooped but what really got me through was being able to hang while training with friends, team mates and music!
I leave you with the latest playlist that displays my ADD (you will see from the vast diversity of songs) for my long treadmill run (little less than 2 hours)...
please note some of my songs are not included because I could not find them on Playlist.com
