Another week of triathlon training DONE! I do have to say, it was extra nice getting my Thursday rest days back in the rotation!!! I can’t believe I’m getting towards the end. The tri will be here before I know it! (Then I decide if I should do another in a few weeks…… decisions, decisions!)
Husband’s birthday is this weekend, and we’re running in a very small 5K with my family. My dad’s bank is sponsoring so we got free registration. I’m in. I’m also starting to think my 14 in 14 is totally going to happen this year if I keep it up!! I’m a 5K machine!!!! Speaking of… it’s about time to pick another goal race. I have a few ideas in mind… but will save that for another post.
Monday: Swim 500 yards, Run 30 minutes
Bike 15 milesBike 12 miles
I biked 12. I am having some MAJOR sciatic nerve issues… and am afraid the bike may not be helping. I only have 10 miles to go for my tri, so I am keeping my rides 12-15 miles from here on out.
Wednesday: Swim 600 yards, Walk 45 minutes
My swim went great and the walk was boring…
Friday: Run 50 minutes / Run 4.5 miles
I was going to go 4.5 no matter how long it took me… and it took me right at 50 minutes. So that works! This was my first run outside in a very long time… it was pretty glorious. I’m glad the weather is getting to that sweet spot where its absolutely perfect before the sun comes up!
Saturday: Bike 20 miles, Walk 30 minutes
(I will only be biking 15 miles… probably!)
So lets go back to this sciatic nerve pain for a minute, can we? Does anybody have any advice here??? I know I mentioned it before that it doesn’t hurt when I run, but DOES hurt when I walk. Or sit. Or do anything. I didn’t think that I would have issues with this until the end of my pregnancy but that does not seem to be the case. I have even considered going to a chiropractor for help… which, if you know me, is a huge deal. (I think they’re shady and I don’t trust it!)
I’ve been doing the stretches and that kind of helps but not really. I’m planning on asking my doctor for his advice when I go next week, but getting advice from blog friends seems almost just as legit. Right? HELP!!!
Oh, and P.S. GO STARS!!! Still not a fan of the new logo or the victory green but dude… so proud of this team!!! For those of you who don’t know I am a huge hockey fan. I worked for the team for my first job out of college for a few years – and they have a very special place in my heart! I am thrilled that they made the playoffs this year, and even MORE thrilled that they are holding their own versus the #1 seed!
