Post Race Workouts
The next week was the week after the race. I stayed at home to visit with my parents. So I took Monday off and iced a sore glute.
Then Tuesday I did bootcamp HIIT intervals and at night I did the Party With Purpose 5K race in Hoboken. I took it easy and really enjoyed it. I ran it with some good friends and it was a lot of fun and we got to have frozen yogurt afterwards
|Super Hot 5k in Hoboken, but awesome views of NYC!!|
Wed - Spin/Swim and Thursday - Outdoor Sports Barre with Local Barre (Such a disappointment NBC Weather was there filming and I was asked to be interviewed by the police made the truck move and ruined my chances).
|I was shocked at how many calories I burned, normally it's about 200-250 but I guess with the heat and biking home I burned a ton.|
Friday I did Spin and Swam and then drove up to the Catskills to visit the old better half. I had quite a time getting up there, a train turned over so I had to subway, bus and train it to Poughkeepsie then get a ride to the Catskills.
|Post spin smoothie, banana strawberry.|
We rode 27 miles on Saturday and Sunday we did 10 miles. However, now I need to get back on a diet because we ate everything in the Catskills, they had delicious cream soda and root beer.
|Delicious soda and food while we were up there.|
|The B&B we stayed at the Catskill Maison, which had great food and absolutely gorgeous bedrooms. And great places to ride nearby.|
