I’m Shaping Up; Week 15

This week I returned to the joy of being a multi-sport athlete. I went out for a 25 mile cycle through the sugarcane fields, and upon returning home I immediately changed into shorts and running shoes.

Exiting the house while rehydrating, I immediately went to the shed and grabbed the lawnmower to cut the lawn before another evening thunder shower.

Well, it wasn’t the traditional multi-sport event, but it was two activities that independently used to leave me exhausted.

Inspired, the next day I did cycle then run (well Jog) (actually Walked) at the high school track. It felt great other than the searing pain transitioning from bike to run, but OH, do I miss those triathlon T-Stages.

Week 15

Here’s to holding each other accountable when the couch looks inviting and the snacks endless.

Weight

– Don’t know. Seriously, didn’t even step on the scale.

Exercise

– Had to remain creative to fit in exercise as school’s out requires more Kiddo time for camps and pizza nights.

– Late night biking on the trainer. Who knew what an effective sleep aid that would be?

Eating

– Moderation mixed with substituting lunch times with yoga, followed up with meal replacement shake.

UNO Ring & BP

– BP stayed in the 130s range. Consistency. Started spot checking resting HR, and it settles about 52 bmp resting.

– The UNO ring slips on and off without hanging up on swollen knuckles or fat fingers.

Monday – Sunday Goals:

– five days of cycling. At least one day followed by grass cutting.

– No yoga sessions. I guess the instructor is entitled to a vacation. Have fun. Continue stretching routine though.

– The increase in cycling caused me to stop weight lifting, so I want to make three mornings in the gym.

– bring lunches to work or prepared meal at home. – Increase hydration.

  1. Congratulations Scott (Chief) you are making great headway on this project. Keep up the good work and you will get to where you want. Take care my friend and keep the chin up.

  2. Yay!!! Congratulations! You’re resting heart rate officially brings you into “bradycardia,” except I assume you have no symptoms of it. That means you’ve achieved an athletic heart status again. Keep going; that BP will settle down further as you go.
