A rather stressful week and not as productive as I’d have liked. I have really let the cycling challenge down and didn’t commute to work as much as I could have. However, I have continued to improve with my swimming and beating my personal best every time.
Monday saw the continuation of the family emergency so for obvious reasons, exercise was not high on my priority list. That being said, to clear my head, I did go for a lengthy walk through the woods.
Tuesday was nothing but work. Wednesday I attended a spin class. I had hoped I’d be able to track my miles but the computer on my bike didn’t work which was super annoying. I then swam a mile.
Back to work Thursday. Friday I was on a late shift so I manged to squeeze another swim in before work. I’m getting faster! I finally brought my bike home after Sundays events.
Saturday I had some well needed ‘Me time’ and decided to give the gym a miss in favour for a little bit of shopping and spending time with Clove. I made up for it on Sunday by cycling too and from the gym, then to work for my night shift. I swam another mile.
Overall, week 3 has been as productive as week 2 however some noticeable slacking on the cycling front. I am really struggling to find the motivation even though I do love getting on my bike. Next week will suffer the same sort of pattern as I start the week on night shifts and have 2 days overtime at work. Slowly but surly, we are getting there.
