No bike ride today. Yesterday was such a beautiful day, and today was dreary and colder. But that’s spring!
This week coming up is my rest week from weight training (to be done approximately every quarter). I find the rest week so beneficial. So, will just be doing cardio.
After that, I start the workouts from New Rules of Lifting for Women. I am going to do a pull up this year!
The first couple of stages of NROL will take me through as the strength training for my triathlon, so I think that will work out well. It changes my normal pattern of doing split workouts (upper body M/TH, lower body T/FR) to 3 total body workouts a week. So, I may sneak in an extra day off a week, if I can 🙂
I have foods planned for the week. I am really trying to tighten things up – I have gotten a bit careless lately with calories, so need to tough love myself a bit. I am also going to try a preworkout/recovery shake on workout days. I am going to have half before I work out, and half right after I am done. Then go home and have breakfast. That way I can take advantage of my muscles being receptive to nutrients right after finishing and not have to wait to get home and fix brekkie! I’ll be interested to see how that affects my progress. It also may help me from wanting to consume everything in sight as soon as I walk in the door! Doing a lot of exercise does not give me license to eat, and I need to remember that.
