rut roh

Well folks I have been unable to workout due to this flipping cold all week.  By the time I get home from work I'm lucky to sit upright nevermind get a workout in.  It's really taken the mick outta me and I think I have a mild case of bronchitis.  Monday night I got home from work by 6pm, fell asleep on the couch, moved to my bed around midnight and woke up at 6am to start all over again.  Yesterday was better throughout the day but again when I got home that was me done. 

On the upside I got my program from Nancy this morning (she's fast) and it sounds like she has taken my bike fear to heart and is determined to conquer it. I'm going to be doing 2 group rides per week, about 2.5 hours total.  2.5 hours or until I fall off.  If that doesn't knock it out of me I don't know what will!!  The rest of the program is as I expected although I think she may secretly be trying to kill me looking at Tues/Wed/Thurs workouts.  Some great stuff, I've joined her women's tri training group as well as her weekly cycling group and I'm also attending Tawnya's bootcamp weekly.  These group sessions will really keep me on track.  She has me down for 2 pool sessions per week, totally cool and I'm excited to see how I measure up to what she's laid out for me.   Two runs per week, one right after biking session, my first ever brick (OUCH).  She even has 3 races plus a bonus 5km run in there.

I just wanted to update quickly, but have to get back to work now, it's freaking crazy here this week. If it's not raining I might go for a walk or light jog if I feel up to it tonight.  It would probably do me some good to get out even for a little bit.  Sunday is the first day of my official program starting with a run and I don't care if I have to crawl, I'm going!!!

Official dates for this challenge are June 6 - July 3.  Sorry PedalmanTO, you don't get that extra week but you do get a full 28 days and I intend to go again for the month of July.

I see that the challenge has begun! I don't mind not getting that extra week, you have your work cut out for you. I love the idea of the races thrown in; that's kicking it up a notch.
