Here is how this week went training wise.
Sunday: Run (C25K W5D2) + 16 Mile Bike
Monday: Swim 1500 yards + Pilates Reformer
Tuesday: Run (C25K W5D3)
Wednesday: Swim 1400 yards
Thursday: Sick (was Run + Bike)
Friday: Sick (was Swim)
Saturday: Scheduled Rest day
I contemplated trying to make up a couple workouts on Saturday but decided against it. I will pick up training again on Sunday.
Wednesday night we did an Iron Chef team building competition. There were 23 of us in the training. We were split up into 2 teams. One cooking vegetarian & one cooking meat. Each team was split into 3 smaller teams. One made the appetizer, one the main dish & one dessert. I was on the dessert team.
The appetizer our team made was a seared skirt steak with asparagus. The main dish was pork with pear & almond rice. The dessert was cheese cake in phyllo cups with the choice of chocolate sauce, berry sauce, whipped cream and/or graham cracker.
The other team made carrot pancakes with a salad for the appetizer, Thai noodles for the main dish & ginger chocolate chip cookie sandwiches for dessert.
Our team won 2 of 3 of the courses. Only our dessert lost because we plated it with with all the options and the judges said it just had too much going on. Oh well, 2 out of 3 isn't too shabby.
