Another week, another plan in place. I had a really bad day mentally yesterday. You know those days where you just all around don’t feel good about yourself, but there’s really no good reason for why you feel that way? That was me. Everything was getting on my last nerve.
You know what makes a bad day better? Having a ridiculously awesome mom + husband. My mom listens to me lament all of my problems all the time. I just don’t know how I got so lucky. And my husband? He just rocks.
When it comes to our interests, Sean and I are decidedly different, but the same. I love working out in any way, shape or form. Sean loves motorcycles like I love working out. We both love being outside. Yesterday when I got home from work he asked me if I wanted to go for a bike ride. For anyone who doesn’t know us personally – we have a grand total of 6 bikes in our garage – two regular bikes, one motorcycle, two dirt bikes and a mini dirt bike. It was a beautiful day, so I enthusiastically agreed. I went and pulled on jeans, boots and my jacket and went to meet Sean in the garage. He was wearing workout shorts and Nikes. We both looked at each other like the other person was crazy.
He thought we were going on a regular bike ride. I thought he meant a motorcycle ride. Miscommunication at its finest. In case you’re wondering, we went on a regular bike ride. [Pointless story of the day – check.]
Moving on… This week is [hopefully] going a little something like this:
Monday: Run 15 minutes [AM], BodyPump (heavy) [PM]
Tuesday:Run 15 minutes [AM], 6 mile run [PM]
Wednesday:Run 15 minutes [AM], 2-3 mile run + Happy Hour Spin Class (doesn’t that just sound fun? Put “Happy Hour” in the title of anything and I’ll probably think it’s a good idea) [PM]
Thursday:Run 15 minutes [AM], Jackie Warner Total Body Circuit Training [PM]
Friday:Run 15 minutes [AM], Friday 5k [PM]
Saturday:10 miles. I haven’t had a solid double digit run in a while. It’s time. + BodyPump (light)
Sunday:REST DAY = the BEST day.
Two things I’m obsessed with right now: easy runs and BodyPump. I’m trying to hit around 30 miles each week, but I’ve realized lately that I’m not even really sure why. I think I’ve gotten so used to feeling like I have to hit a certain mileage during training. On the other hand, I really want to up my strength training. It’s put me in a strange place where I’m not really sure what to do. Suggestions?
