Manic Monday Training Recap – 05/22/17

Manic Monday

Training For: Craft Brew Race 5k (May 20)

Monday 05/15/17: 5k Run
I had something weird going on with my left elbow, so I decided to run instead of going to CF. It turned out to be a gorgeous evening and I ran my hilly route quite a bit faster than usual without it feeling extra hard. Yay!

Tuesday 05/16/17: 4 Mile Run
This should have been a CF day, but it was gorgeous and warm and sunny and I just wanted to run. So I did.

Wednesday 05/17/17: Rest
First Dogfight rehearsal, yay! We did a full read through of the script, and I’m so excited!

Thursday 05/18/17: Rest
I was planning to go to CrossFit, but when the time came, I just plain didn’t feel like it.

Friday 05/19/17: Rest
Once again, I should have gone to CF, but I didn’t feel like it.

Saturday 05/20/17: Craft Brew Race 5k
Stay tuned for a full recap later this week!

Sunday 05/21/17: Rest
I did a few things around the house in the morning, and then had rehearsal in the afternoon.

This was not a stellar week. As you may recall from last week’s post, I’m just having a hard time figuring out my priorities right now, and being whiny and resistant to changes in my schedule. However, I’m determined to knuckle down and figure things out this week. The weather is messing with my plans a bit, as it’s currently raining and today is a run day, but I’ll figure it out.

Do you find it easy to shrug off an “off” week? Unfortunately it can often cause me to backslide even further…

    I really think that it is hard for most of us to cut ourselves some slack and instead jump immediately to beating ourselves up with negative self-talk.

    It is so hard to accept that transitions are hard – social media doesn’t help, artificially informing us that new things are always a joyous adventure rather than a trip on the struggle-bus to find a ‘new normal’.

    There is a saying that “not only is the best you can do the best you can do – it is all you can do, and it is good enough”. So let yourself adjust … and if that means an off day or week here or there, that is ok.
