Week of June 3-June 9, 2013:
Current Weight: 153.6 (Down 0.4 lbs since last week)
Total Lost to date (since September 2011): 67.2 lbs
I had all these grand plans last week.
I was going to write a fabulous post on my fitness assessments. I was waiting to reschedule another test for the write-up. I will still write about this. Hopefully in the next couple of days.
|A sneak peek of me in the Bod Pod to make up for the delay.|
|No idea of what the next 24-48 hours will bring.|
Wicked was awesome, by the way.
|Avery brought me flowers from the garden to help.|
Then disaster. I got a text from my friend Deb, who babysat for date night, she was having similar problems Sunday morning. On Monday, Mark and my friend Sarah got it. Not food poisoning after all.
So far, Avery does not have it. It would be awesome if she didn't get it, because I cannot think of anything worse than toddler serial vomiting and diarrhea.
Major changes from last weeks workouts: Needless to say, my workouts suffered this week. I took an extra rest day instead of a run day on Monday to accommodate the VO2 testing scheduled on Tuesday. The fitness testing took long enough that I missed my strength training session on Tuesday, and wound up running instead of hiking. To compensate, I combined intervals and strength training on Wednesday. Friday was my normal rest day, Saturday was vomit day, and Sunday was a limited hike. Not at all what was on the training schedule. I did not add the extra strength training session nor the short stair session. I didn't even do what I had done the previous week.
I do feel good on the weight front though. Even though it shows a slight down from last week, this is actually feels like a win because this week will be TTOM week, and usually I weigh in 2-3 lbs heavier this week. Hopefully the increased calorie load recommended by my bod pod experience is paying off, and it's not just residual effects of the bug.
Here is what the week looked like day-by-day:
5 mile recovery run. Rest day pre-VO2 test
1 hour strength training, Easy hike. Fitness tests, 6 mile run, 9:46 avg
Wednesday: TM intervals 9% incline with strength training, one hour.
Thursday: 1 hour strength training, 6 mile run, 9:06 avg
Friday: Rest day
14 mile run. Vomit Day
Sunday: 1.5 hour hike, Kelty Pack-Avery (~30lbs). No break.

I'm leaving out the bullets from Rainier training since this week was so off-plan this week. I'll bring it back next week.
Have you ever had a week derailed by things outside of your control? (Ok, the fitness testing was my fault, but I didn't expect the rest).
How do you normally adjust workouts/schedules after a week like this? I know what I intend, but I'll probably check with my trainer today to be safe.
