In the meantime, I won't be complaining about days like today. Just sunbathing on the deck while the last of the snow melts.
In the midst of last week's snowstorm, I completely forgot about the "Sunday SBR". So, consider this the Wednesday swim/bike/run recap. Week 5 was a recovery week, and coincided nicely with my ski trip. I've been fighting a nagging virus for a couple weeks now, so the week was a little slow getting back into the swing of things. Plus, I was on call for the weekend, which puts a damper on training.
Week 6 Totals: 11 hours, 50 minutes
Swim: 6600 yards
Bike: 5 hours
Run: 14.4 miles
Strength: 2 hours
Post-call I was happily surprised by this Valentine's Day package from Mom and Dad, plus several other holiday cards. They know very well that chocolate is the way to my heart! These decadent truffles and caramels are from The Chocolate Fetish in Asheville. After eating several pieces, I only wish that their store was closer to Charlotte! The DVD first season of Breaking Bad and a red-stripe scarf were also included. Thanks Mom and Dad!
I'll leave you with a few meals from the week. The first is a "kitchen sink" salad that included a bed of baby kale, mushrooms, corn, peas, vegan "chicken" salad, lentil, avocado, and a drizzle of balsamic.
It's been several weeks since I roasted some vegetables, so into the oven went butternut squash and broccoli. The squash was drizzled with coconut oil and cinnamon, and the broccoli with EVOO, S&P, and garlic. To round out the plate I had a corn muffin and avocado slices.
I hope everyone else is enjoying the snow-melting weather!
