Taking it easy today, I am sore!

Well I guess after the adrenaline wore off I started to feel the effects of my fall yesterday. Last night I started to feel stiff and bruised along the side of my body. This morning it is worse so I am going to do the smart thing and take it easy today! If I feel better later today I may head out for walk and maybe a slow swim but nothing more than that.

As usual just because I am not hitting it hard with my workouts today I still have goals I want to reach. I really do feel that reaching these small goals that I set for each day add up over time! They are important and should not be overlooked!

1. Drink 1 gallon of water - done
2. Take all vitamins and supplements - done
3. Stretch with foam roller - not yet
4. Stay within calorie range - done
5. Ice my knee - done

Now I need to look forward to next week and what I want to accomplish! I have about one week until my race so I need to stay strong while tapering my workouts. I want to focus on swimming and getting in at least 3 more bricks. Here is my schedule for the next week......

Friday - recovery from fall ( slow walk/swim)
Saturday - Bike 30 mins slow/ walk - 30 mins post ride
Sunday - Bike 10/Run 3
Monday - Swim 3 x 300 m repeats/ Walk 45 mins
Tuesday - Swim 2 x 300 m/Bike 10/ Run 2
Wednesday - Yoga 60 mins
Thursday - Bike 10/ Run 3
Friday - Swim 3 x 300 m easy/ Walk 45 mins
Saturday - light walk 30 mins
Sunday - RACE DAY!! TRIATHLON #3!!!!

I will come back tonight to report back on my goals for the day. Hope everyone has a successful and productive weekend!

Keep reaching and working hard!!!

Jen, just wanted to say thanks for posting a comment on my blog and I wanted to let you know that you have been an inspiration to me. I've read through how much work you have done to get where you are today and I truly hope to get there one day myself. I love how much exercising you do and I'm not sure if it should be called exercising per se but really how much you enjoy challenging your body to be the best it can be.

You deserve a day off - enjoy it and you will be all that much more stronger tomorrow.
