Transition Week

I don't normally have a ton of rest days on the schedule. Sometimes weeks go by without one. So imagine my surprise, when I opened up TrainingPeaks to find that this week is going to be "transition week" and that I had two rest days scheduled to hit it off and easy workouts for the remainder of the week.

 This "transition week" thing is going to be my new best friend!

To kick off transition week, I didn't have to:
  • pack any workout gear Sunday night
  • get up at 4:30am
  • get a workout in before work
  • get a workout in after work
  • pack any workout gear Monday night either

I did get a long walk in with the doggie as soon as I got back from work and prepared by work lunch for today. Sometimes, eating out during the week is so much easier, because I just don't want to fit in one more thing before I finally can go to bed in high volume weeks. I do know, that especially in those weeks it's important to stay on track with nutrition, but I guess I just can't win them all.

Transition week is not going to last forever, but I am sure to enjoy it, while it lasts.

Today my schedule says: "Think about your off season goals!" I am not thinking of anything else, since I crossed that finish line on Saturday... Stay tuned!

  1. I've sort of been in a sort of transition the past 2 weeks and have another couple left before the big winter training starts. It's a nice change and I've been doing the same as you, thinking about my goals. While it is nice to have some time, I'm already itching to get back in the gym. How about you?
