Workout Schedule...and too much indulgence

  • Feb 13th, 2019 at 1:42PM

My parents were here for the last 12 days. We've had some good meals...including quite a bit of Chinese. Plus it was my daughter's 11th birthday. I wasn't totally off the rails on the diet but definitely not as clean as I'd like for a 6 week program. Hitting all the snacks. Meals at home are on point. Meals out...not horrendous....

I'm experimenting with the workout schedule this week. Dragonboat practice is Tue/Thu...and it's fairly intense. So I did my Active Recovery workout yesterday before practice. Tomorrow will be my Cardio day, i.e. just paddling. Today I'll do yesterday's workout. And so by Sunday I'm all caught up - just a bit out of the intended order. I'm aware that without real recovery days I may end up a bit too fatigued. Going to try it out this week and next and see if I need to make a change when we get into the even tougher/longer workouts in the 2nd half.

And I have not gotten this week's photo up yet. My shorts that I'm intending to wear for each picture are still in the laundry. Hopefully ready tomorrow for a quick photo! Oops!

Photos:
Dragonboat team warmup - wall sit with gun show!
Chinese private kitchen dinner - complete with a pigeon each (and gloves to tear into it without getting our hands dirty)!
Dim sum lunch with the fam - yes I did eat one of those minions buns filled with egg custard - worth it!
Treats for my daughter's class - 32 Cinnamon Toast Crunch treats made with lots of butter & marshmallows - I had only 1 bite of hers at her insistence that I try it!
Daughter's birthday dinner at Din Tai Fung - we sang happy birthday over a piece of steamed cake (she loves it) but I didn't have any myself. I think I did enough damage with the dumplings!

    @Ren - we miss you too. Although your visit was during pre-season. We've been hitting 8+ kilometers some days in Jan/Feb. Let me know when you're coming back to HK!

      Quite the wall sit/gun show! Looks like you had a good visit and some great meals with your family. Good luck fitting all the workouts in....you are good about listening to your body.

        Damn 8+km of paddling - tough - no wonder those wall sits look like a piece of cake to you and the crew. Smart to play with the workout schedule while keeping an eye on how you recover. Those twin bellz can be tough task masters.

            Egg custard filled minions buns FTW!
            At least you didn't torture your daughter's class with some cheez doodle marshmallow abomination...

              Way to represent the 90 degree proper angle for those wall sits (a couple cheaters in that photo).

              You know my vote on not over doing it too much to risk over training burnout for your season. Play it smart.

                The pidgeon and gloves- that's amazing! Definitely tough to navigate the diet amid celebrations and guests. Way to stay focused. What is a dragonboat?! Have a great week!

                  The pictures are wonderful, such a special time.
                  I wondered about the dragon boater who is doing the wall sit against a pole. Sounds painful.

                    Great photos! I would not have been able to resist tasting the Cinnamon Toast Crunch treats either.
