Manic Monday – 10/12/15


What Was Planned vs. What Happened

Monday 10/05/15:  Body Pump Body Pump
Second week in a row, woot woot! I was sore for DAYS after last week’s class, and only slightly less so after this class. Just means I need to be there, right? I always considered myself to be a strong person before Body Pump, and now I know that’s a lie…

Tuesday 10/06/15:  3 Miles Rest
Work continued to kick my butt this week, and when lunchtime rolled around, running was the last thing I wanted to do. And then after work, we went to Trivia and half-price burger night down the street, so running after work didn’t happen either. But I think I needed the break–I ran Saturday, did my long run Sunday, and Body Pump Monday. I usually don’t do so many days in a row without a rest day.

Wednesday 10/07/15:  Tap Class Tap Class
Seriously, this is just too much fun. I’m starting to “get it” a little bit more, but I really should be practicing outside of class. One hour a week isn’t really enough to get good.

Thursday 10/08/15:  Run Club Speed Workout Sh’Bam
Unbeknownst to me when I was crafting my schedule for the week, Ben had parent/teacher conferences this evening, leaving me without a car. I was going to just do a solo run, but my lovely friend and co-worker offered to give me a ride to Sh’Bam, and my friend/Sh’Bam instructor Brad gave me a ride home. Yay!

Friday 10/09/15:  Rest Rest
It was raining, and even though I probably could have squeaked in a run, I just didn’t feel like it. I watched Netflix until Ben got home from his broomball game, and then we headed down to my parents’ place.

Saturday 10/10/15:  Run Club 4 Miles Rest
I did a really crappy job of scheduling myself this week. In addition to Thursday’s SNAFU, I forgot that Ben and I were visiting my parents this weekend, which meant no run club. I had a nice, relaxing day with my family instead.

Sunday 10/11/15:  11 Miles Rest
Aaaaand yeah, that didn’t happen. Part running ennui, part drinking a bit too much on Saturday night, part general laziness. Oh well. We stayed at my parents’ place until almost 7:30 pm and then hit the hay early.

That week definitely didn’t go according to plan. I’m going to try to get it together this week, but who knows. I’m still not feeling super excited about running. Here’s the tentative plan:

  • Monday: Rest
  • Tuesday: 3 miles
  • Wednesday: Tap
  • Thursday: Run club speed workout
  • Friday: Rest
  • Saturday: Run club 3-4 miles
  • Sunday: 11 miles

When was your last non-running week?

      I’m training for the Wine and Dine half marathon in November, but I know I’ll be taking it easy with photo breaks and to stay with my friends, so one missed long run isn’t the end of the world.

    For a week that didn’t mesh perfectly with your schedule, it was still a pretty sweet week! Tap class sounds like it would be fun… I found my toddler-sized tap shoes recently and have no memory of ever using them, which is a shame! I’m pretty sure I would have found it fun back then, too 🙂

    Trivia and burgers > Running! I love trivia – we have a local pub down the street and play often. So fun! I am intriged by Sh’Bam. I think I said that before. And every week, your post makes me want to join a dance studio and sign up for tap classes. So FREAKING FUN.

    I second Allison- trivia and burgers?! That’s awesome. I won’t lie, a non running week sounds kind of awesome. And tap sounds awesome- it’s always something that I wanted to learn but after a few years of dance I know I have no rhythm. That doesn’t make for a good combo with tap. 🙂
