What Was Planned vs. What Happened
Monday 08/24/15: 3 Miles Easy | 3.4 Miles Easy
This was my first run in over a week, and while it took a bit to settle into a rhythm, it still felt amazing.
Tuesday 08/25/15: Rest | Rest
I had a killer headache all day Monday and all day Tuesday, so I was happy to just go home and relax after work. I think I was still just overtired and stressed out because of the show.
Wednesday 08/26/15: Run/Walk Intervals with Emily | 37 Minutes/2.5 Miles Intervals
Emily had to take two weeks off running due to her torn rotator cuff, but she still busted out this run like a champion! We’re officially running longer intervals than walking, and I’m such a proud coach. She’s really determined to meet her goal, and I’m determined to get her there healthy and happy.
Thursday 08/27/15: 3 Miles Easy | Rest
Second week of Chess performance kicked off, and I didn’t want to try to cram a run in, so I just rested and got myself ready.
Friday 08/28/15: Rest | Rest
I was wiped after Thursday night’s performance, so I elected not to get up early or try to cram in a runch.
Saturday 08/29/15: Rest | Rest
Two show days are incredibly taxing at the best of times, but with a show like this, where I’m running the emotional extreme gamut and singing my face off, anything extra would be too much.
Sunday 08/30/15: 4.5 Miles Moderate | Rest
Yeah, I slept until 11:30, by which point it was too hot to run. We also had to head out to Ben’s parents’ place to do some prep for the pig roast, then grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, and early to bed.
I’m beginning to think I’ve bitten off a bit more than I can chew for the coming weeks. I haven’t been keeping up with my running, our apartment is a mess, and I’m booked solid for every single weekend in September with races, voice lessons, and family events. Stay tuned for a life update post later this week that will go into more detail.
Despite the insanity, I’m going to attempt to get a few runs in this week. Here’s the plan:
- Monday: 3 miles easy
- Tuesday: Run/walk intervals with Emily
- Wednesday: 3 miles easy
- Thursday: Rest (Chess performance)
- Friday: Rest (Chess performance)
- Saturday: Rest (Chess performance x2 plus morning voice lesson)
- Sunday: Rest (Clean and prep for pig roast)
How do you stay on track with your training when life gets busy?
