Leaf Peepers Half Marathon Training Week 5
What Was Planned vs. What Happened
Monday 08/08/16: Yoga | Rest
No excuses other than “I was tired.” I made dinner for the next few days and then just sat on my butt for the evening, and it felt great.
Tuesday 08/02/16: 3 Miles + Abs | Rest
Umm, again with no excuses. Yikes.
Wednesday 08/03/16: Rest | Rest
Ahem. Yup. I was “tired.”
Thursday 08/04/16: 6 x 400 | Rest
Friday 08/05/16: Rest | Rest
OK, this is really starting to get ridiculous.
Saturday 08/06/16: 100 on 100 Relay | 13 Miles Total
If you follow me on social media, you’ve already seen that we didn’t finish due to severe lightning storms, but you’ll have to wait until Wednesday for a full recap!
Sunday 08/07/16: Rest | Rest
I had some DOMS and was very tired after Saturday, so when I got home, I took an epsom salt bath and just relaxed until Ben got home–REUNITED, YAY! We went out for a nice dinner and then just read and relaxed until bedtime.
Weekly Mileage: 13
Total 2016 Mileage: 491.7
So, not the best week ever. I’ve been mulling over whether or not to address my mindset this week in a larger post, but the long and short of it is, I was feeling a little overwhelmed by life, the universe, and everything. A combination of nerves over the 100 on 100 relay, being alone and having to take care of everything around the house myself while Ben is in PA, and freaking out about moving in three weeks just had me feeling like, “Well, if I can’t do everything, I might as well not do anything at all.” I get like that sometimes; I get paralyzed by everything I have to do, and instead of just prioritizing the list and getting after it, I freeze.
Now that the relay is over, my work client appreciation event is over, and Ben is home, I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things. I’ve got lots to look forward to this week, including hopefully FINALLY getting back to yoga, a voice lesson, and a wedding! And Ben is “off” for the next few weeks, so he can get a jump start on all of the packing. Ugh. Packing. I swear, every time we move, I have a better understanding of people who practice a minimalist lifestyle. “WHO NEEDS 12 GLASSES?! LET’S JUST GET RID OF ALL OF THEM BUT 2! F*&^ THIS S#@&!”
Do you hate moving as much as I do?
