Week In Numbers (and WWW: June 5)

June 13, 2011 Fitness, Food, Fun 4 Comments

Here’s a snapshot of how my week went, by the numbers:

Fitness miles achieved: 76.5

Peanut butter cups consumed: 18

Hours of sleep attained: 57

Showers taken: 3

Dogs petted: 6

Babies held: 4

Bottles of wine imbibed: 7

Hangovers suffered: 0

Anniversaries celebrated: 1

Birthdays celebrated: 2

Jobs applied for: 3

Jobs landed: 0

Dinners cooked: 7

Sunny days: 2

All in all, it was a pretty good week. My training is going well, especially considering I’m getting into the longer runs. My legs were tired on Saturday, so I took the day off in prep for a long brick workout Sunday. It went well! I’m glad I’m getting better at listening to my body rather than my guilty conscience…

I have a follow-up appointment for my shoulder tomorrow and will hopefully be able to test out swimming on Wednesday. To tell you the truth, it doesn’t feel any different (read: any better) than before the cortisone shot… so I don’t know what that means. I have followed the doctor’s orders and haven’t gone swimming or done yoga or any other strength work. I miss all of those things so much!

Stay tuned for an update on Argus this week as well.

  1. I love this concept! I should do a rundown like this as well.

    I’ve been thinking of something like the “Five for Friday” that Katy and a few others do, this is a fun snapshot of your week.

    I’m with you on the wine ;)
    I need to catch up on the cooking (microwave doesn’t count, I know).

    And there are definitely not enough babies and dogs in my life – but two cats (one who thinks he’s a dog hybrid) and my 4 year old cub who’s constantly asking if he’ll be 5 tomorrow, have my hands pretty full.

    Awesome mileage, btw!

      Thanks for stopping by, Kristen!

      My WWW is a way to stay accountable on the training stuff, and several people have said it helps them stay motivated… so it’s a double win! I started in January and it is fun to go back and look through the year in training.

      From your note to me on Katy’s blog, I’d be happy to help you ease into your first tri. It doesn’t have to take all your free time, and training with your “cub” (love that!) is a great way to build strength. I’m no expert, but I am a realist about what works and what doesn’t. :-)

      Have a great day!

    Hmmmm…that ratio of showers taken to fitness miles achieved seems is a little low. Can we integrate that into your goals for next week?
