Moving on. This week I prioritized my second job. In 2011, I smashed myself good over February break. This years plan was a bit different. It didn't mean a whole heckuva lot more volume than normal, but it did mean time to focus on the things I feel I neglect when trying to focus on both jobs full time: recovery! On the recovery front, I spent 30 minutes with my feet up after any hard workout, had an amazing sports massage with Simone, some much-needed A.R.T. with Dan, and even threw some yoga in there for good measure. With all this, I'm feeling like new today and ready for a fun weekend.
Of course I did train quite a bit this week. I spent plenty of time on the bike, surprised myself in some runs, and went to noon masters every day to swim in the sunshine.

The week has been awesome, but I wouldn't categorize it as relaxing. There is absolutely more fun in store this weekend! I'm off for a couple workouts, then am going to pack my bags and we're set to hit the dez again. I hear wedding bells! Time to mix "business" with pleasure. What are you up to this weekend? Mixing training with normal people fun?
