Family Photos

Today was a fun day. It rained all day, so I went to church, did some grocery shopping, and sat around all day. We were supposed to have ridden at noon but didn't, and I thanked God for the reason to not train. Will worked me hard last week and I needed time to recover. We are going to try the same workouts this week, every other day instead of consecutive days, and I hope it will go better and that I won't be as exhausted. Talked to Lana, talked to Robin, talked to my dad, and relaxed. Lovely!

This was my note to Will.
Here's my proposal for this week: I will train T/T/S and repeat last week (you said that was an option, right?).

Here's how I felt over the last week:
  • Saturday's workout: good
  • Sunday's workout: tired
  • Monday: day off absolutely necessary
  • Tuesday: OK—rode well, worked out, tired and slow later
  • Wednesday: fatigued (you knew this; you asked during the second set of lunges if I was really tired)
  • Thursday: exhaustion was compounded, but I tried really hard to not let it show
  • Friday: rode all junk miles on my bike because I was so tired—my legs would not move fast
  • Saturday: sat in a hot, hot tub and that's it—I wasn't sore, just super tight; it felt akin to having run a marathon!
  • Sunday: riding later and we'll see how it goes, but I think it will go better than Friday
I don't think I can do three days in a row effectively. This will give you a chance to focus on hockey this week and not worry about other stuff, and it will give me a chance to do this one well and hopefully riderun better during the week.
I have high hopes that this week will be better, but I am sad that I will have to do it alone.

In family news, Aunt Jean sent some great pictures of some of our immediate and extended Acheson family. Here they are!
