This was a good Monday as I was so very eager to get back into the pool and get a workout in. It was so hard being away from the gym for a week!
I got 1400m in today, doing sets of (2 laps x kick or pull buoy + 3 laps freestyle). I struggled a bit, definitely feeling my fitness deteriorating but hopefully I can maintain what I've got now that I'm home and can get back into a routine.
This week, I have clearance to try to spin! This is o.k. as long as I feel no pain, don't get out of my saddle, and keep resistance low. I'm going to give the spin a spin tomorrow...
I was supposed to return to the physical therapist this week after missing last week but had to cancel my appointment due to a schedule conflict. Now, next available appointment isn't until NEXT FRIDAY! That's pretty much 3 weeks without seeing the doc and that makes me very frustrated.
Otherwise, my brain is spinning itself in circles due to the lack of training. Nothing to obsess about!
To keep myself occupied, I'm finally reading Parenting with Love and Logic by Cline & Fay that everyone raves about (anyone out there read this?). I think I've read at least 100 baby/toddler-related books in the last 2+ years. Other than one sleep training book, which is like my bible, not sure if I've been able to incorporate anything or not?
Also, based on this book review, I picked up Racing Weight by Matt Fitzgerald. At the close of my Seattle RNR training, I had been frustrated with my body composition (duh, I haven't been on a regular weight training routine since 2008) and had been intending on trying to work on my muscle:fat mass ratio so maybe this book will give me some pointers on how to pull it all together?
