Conditioning Week 5

Week 5— June 16-22 - Minimum Requirements:

I’m feeling better and stronger this week. I’m back at Monster Cycle and rolling right along with my routine. Adding the long walk in the morning and incorporating hill sprints into my commute is feeling more habitual now. My usual Sunday Yoga class is no longer doable so I’m looking for something to fill that space. It can’t be all running and Monster Cycle… can it?

Run / Walk at least 45 minutes at least 3 days— ‎✔‎✔‎✔‎‎✔‎✔‎

Got 2 bonus days this week! I’m being mindful of not overdoing it. I set minimum requirements for a reason but if I can do more and still feel pain free and not unreasonably fatigued then I am all for fast tracking. Given how I’m feeling and how much more I’ve been doing I think it’s time to face facts that it’s time to reassess my conditioning plan and challenge myself differently. In next weeks post I’ll be writing up an updated more aggressive plan for the remainder of the conditioning season.

Sunday Step Count: 18,990 - Cyclones Take Your Base 5K 35:09 **Wooo! 2 minute improvement**

Tuesday Step Count: 11,438 - Hill and stair sprints

Wednesday Step Count: 14,022 - Hills and stairs again

Thursday Step Count: - 15,921 - Hills and stairs again

Saturday Step Count: - 26,488 - Hills and stairs again

Mindful eating and sobriety at least 6 days—‎ ✔✔✔

I didn’t eat anything I regret and given that I am finally feeling like my energy is living up to the level of activity I want to achieve I think I’ve finally hit a good balance. I get only 3 checks this week due to a few celebrations that fell within the same week but I feel more on track than ever and I think that is just fine and dandy.
