Manic Monday Training Recap – 02/25/19

Manic Monday

What Was Planned vs What Happened

Monday 02/11/19: 2 mile run | 2 mile run + stretching
I decided to do a few hill repeats on this run, since I’ve been doing nothing but flat treadmill runs for months. It was a new challenge, and felt great.

Tuesday 02/12/19: Yoga | Yoga
Penelope came over and we did Yoga With Adriene’s videos for Hips and Lower Back and Neck, Shoulders, and Upper Back. It was a lovely full-body stretch.

Wednesday 02/13/19: 1.5 mile run | 1.5 mile run + hip strength + stretching
I wasn’t feeling this run AT ALL, but I got it done.

Thursday 02/14/19: Strength | Rest
I was feeling super worn out and like I might be coming down with something, so I rested.

Friday 02/15/19: 2 mile run | Rest
I still wasn’t feeling it, so I rested again.

Saturday 02/16/19: 2.5 mile run | Rest
Yup, more of the same.

Sunday 02/17/19: Rest | Rest
Nailed it, haha!

Weekly Mileage: 3.5 miles

Total 2019 Mileage: 64

As you can see, this wasn’t a great week for working out, but I have been feeling so incredibly worn down, I know I needed the rest. Between being a new mom, rehearsals for my show, and trying to get back to regular exercise, I think I’ve been overdoing it a bit lately. While I don’t regret being in this show, I definitely think it was the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back.

Luckily, the show is this coming Sunday, and after that I can just focus on momming and exercise for a while. I don’t think I’ll be auditioning for another show any time soon. The travel and the staying up late are just too much right now. I need to focus on taking care of myself first; there will be plenty of opportunities to do theatre when I’m not so freaking tired.

When is the last time you took a nice long break from working out?

    It’s been a few years since I’ve taken a few months off. I’ve found it’s easier to keep a base level of fitness, ,even a really low one, than starting all over again.

    unfortunately I take a break when injured. Sad but true.Then again, you do what you need to do. Next week will be better, I’m sure of it.
