Weekly Re-Cap

Monday – 2/13 – 3000 yds, rest
Worked late, then it seemed to take forever to make it home. Ugh, traffic! This became an unscheduled rest day.

Yes, those are breaklights as far as the eye can see...grrrr!

Tuesday – 2/14 – 2800 yds, rest
I went into work late, because I had a dentist appointment in the morning.  This resulted in working late again and I ended up in more traffic! WTH? Looks like another unscheduled rest day...but I did get to take my Valentines out for breakfast before my appointment!

My silly Valentines...celebrating over breakfast!

At least I came home to gorgeous flowers after fighting all that traffic!  Thank you Hubby, my Sweetie!

Wednesday, 2/15 – 2 miles & 3000 yd swim
This was the 2-mile “test run”. I also managed to get in that 3000 yds from Monday (finally), even though I really didn’t want to. This is my longest swim ever, so I am pretty darn proud! And, my times were consistent the entire time, so that’s just more to celebrate.  Yippee!

Thursday, 2/16 – P90X, Shoulders and Arms
After the achiness from the run the day before, Coach and I decided to let the hip rest indefinitely. :-) Instead of trying to swim, bike or run, I did P90X.  This workout incorporates weights to work out the shoulders, triceps and biceps…this is my favorite P90X workout.

Friday, 2/17 – Rest
I had a hair appointment after work, which meant I ended up getting home late and did not work out.  But, I did get to hang out with the family!

Saturday, 2/18 – NOTHING 
I had every intention of doing P90X early in the morning before the kids were awake, but I woke up at 2 am for some unknown reason and couldn’t go back to sleep. Then, just as I was finally drifting off to sleep, I woke to the sounds of some scared kids thanks to the rain, thunder and lightening. It took another hour to get everyone settled down and back to sleep.  Then, around 6 am, the Hubby was called into work. Let's just say that the workout ended up getting pushed way down on the priority list!  This was definitely a Mommy/Kids day - I carted the kids to Walmart, then to McDonalds's for lunch (I know, I know - the 2nd time in one week...this does NOT happen often!) and then the grocery store.  By the time we made it home, it was almost 4 pm.  The weather was still crappy, so we built a huge tent out of old sheets in the living room....the kids enjoyed it so much that they slept there on Saturday night!

Sunday, 2/19 – P90X, Chest and Back, plus core
More pull ups and push ups! And, I added in some ab and core work that I didn’t think would bother the hip. I would normally do Ab Ripper X, but I was worried that some of the exercises would bother the hip (i.e. In & Outs, Crunchy Frogs, bicycles, etc.)…so I improvised and I think I managed to get a great workout!

How was your weekend?  Did you get in some good workouts, or get rained out?

Sounds like it was a good week to just get some extra rest in. Sometimes we just need it and it just works out that way. Great job on 3000 in the pool!! That's quite a swim workout!

No matter what your budget, it is always a good idea to read plenty of reviews on the abdominal exercise machines within your price range.

That's an awesome swim, way to go! I need to make time for the pool again, as well as stretching and yoga... there's not enough time in the week to fit it all in!
