Manic Monday – 06/15/15


Monday 06/08/15:  Rest Day

Since I raced on Sunday, I figured a rest day was in order. I had rehearsal in the evening, which was a vocal workout, but otherwise all I did was walk to and from work (about 3/4 mile).

Tuesday 06/09/15:  Rest Day

I intended to get up and run, but I haven’t been sleeping well at the new apartment and just didn’t have the energy. However, I did walk to and from work.

Wednesday 06/10/15:  3.1 mile run; 45 second plank; 30 squats; 5 reverse pull-ups

I’m trying REALLY hard to actually do some strength exercises, because the Spartan Race is slowly but surely sneaking up on me, and I don’t want to look like a doofus. We have a pull-up bar at the apartment, and I can do lots of other stuff without a gym, so it’s time to cut the excuses and just do it. I also rode my bike to and from work.

Thursday 06/11/15:  Active Rest Day

I got home from rehearsal late on Wednesday night, so I slept in today. I walked to and from work, and Ben and I took a nice long walk after work, but that’s it.

Friday 06/12/15:  Active Rest Day

I walked to and from work and also to and from a lunch date with my friend Emily, for about a total of 2 miles.

Saturday 06/13/15:  3.2 Mile Run Club Run; 2.25 mile walk

The first meeting of my run club was awesome. I ran with a couple of really cool people, and they helped me push my pace a bit faster than I normally would on a short training run. I’m sad I have to miss the next few runs for our Prague trip! Ben and I also walked down to our friends’ house and back for margarita night, so it was a nice, active day.

Sunday 06/14/15:  9.7 mile bike ride; 3.72 mile walk

Ben and I went for a glorious bike ride in the morning before rehearsal, and after dinner we went for a super long walk, looking for a beach we’d both heard of but had never been to. We got all turned around and went the wrong way, which is why it ended up being such a long walk, but it was a beautiful evening, so we didn’t mind too much.

This is going to be a busy, short week before we leave for Prague on Friday (!!!). I’m going to try to cram in a few runs, but my first priority is making sure I get packed and organized. We’re going to be gone for 10 days, and we’re only taking carry-on luggage, so I need to be on top of my ish. Here’s a VERY tentative plan for the week.

  • Monday: Rest
  • Tuesday: 30 minute run/walk intervals with Emily (I’m trying to convince her that running is fun!)
  • Wednesday: 3 mile run before work
  • Thursday: 3 mile run before work
  • Friday: Rest–off to Prague!
  • Saturday June 19-Sunday June 29: PRAGUE ADVENTURES!!!

Do you ever skip morning workouts to get more sleep?

    Have a great trip!!! I work out in the evening during the week and try my hardest not to skip…but just last week I was having weird issues with my legs, so skipped my Thursday night run. I never skip my long runs, even though I’m often tempted to sleep in, LOL!

    Great week last week, I am awed by all your walking miles. I really need to be less of a slacker. Yay, less than 5 days from your trip, how exciting!!! I can’t imagine just traveling with a carry on though, yikes!

    Yay for the running club! I’m so excited for you! Also, morning workouts suck so I never even schedule them. Sleep should always win 🙂

    I’m so jealous that you live close enough to work to walk/bike! I didn’t take advantage often enough when I lived less than 2 miles from work when I lived in Boston. Oh well. More importantly – PRAGUE!! Holy crap! Have an AMAZING time!! 😀

    Sunday sounds so relaxing. a bike ride and a long walk by the beach. ahh you have me day dreaming about that at work. lol
    I don’t usually skip morning workouts, but if I do than it’s because my daughter woke up and I can’t crush her little heart by leaving. haha. or crush mine. 🙂

    Good luck on the morning running. I usually only skip to sleep in if I make the decision the night before. What I do instead is walk a lot and totally slack off during the run. Also not a good strategy.
