Kate's update - Week of 4/30

Here is my update for the week.  Overall it was a great week.  Looking forward to taking it up a notch!
TRAINING:  I have finished a full week of the Be Iron Fit Intermediate training plan.  I think it was the perfect week of training for me due to my knee injury.  It will be interesting to see how this plan works.  It was weird going so slow.  It took a lot of control not to take off and let my heart rate go crazy.  The only bad thing was that I didn't get into a pool.  I HAVE TO FIND A POOL!

KNEE:  My knee feels good.  I only did my assigned work outs and nothing more.  I also iced and elevated.  Seems like it is working. 

BIKE FIT:  I went on an hour ride today.  It felt like I was on a different bike.  I can't believe how much higher I am sitting.  It makes my positioning much more aggressive.  I was a little spooked getting into my new aerobars.  I haven't been down in them for over a year.  I think it will be fun getting used to this new ride!

  1. I am glad the knee feels better! I have to get my heart rate monitor out of the box so that I am officially following the Iron Fit plan...
