Monday Moves

Posted Mar 18 2013 3:20pm

Oh Monday, we meet again. I made some really poor decisions surrounding wine yesterday after going rock climbing and am paying for it today. I’m tired, I’m cranky, and I feel like eating nothing but carbs and drinking soda. So that’s exactly what I’ve done.

Note to self: Sunday Funday, even if it’s with your parents, is unacceptable.

Despite the fact that I pretty much slept on my drive into work this morning, I did still manage to formulate a workout plan and bust out a sleepy 15 minutes on the treadmill at a very easy [but felt unnecessarily hard] pace. Priorities. I’m trying to get myself out of my funk by repeating motivational mantras in my head, but I’m just not sure how well that’s actually working.



In the spirit of just jumping right into things, the plan this weeks looks a little like this:

Monday: Run 15 minutes [AM], 1/4 mile repeats on the treadmill [PM] <— I feel like this isn’t going to happen. That’s pretty pitiful. We’ll see if I can drum up some motivation.

Tuesday: Run 15 minutes [AM], BodyPump [PM]

Wednesday: Run 15 minutes [AM], easy 45 minute run [PM]

Thursday: Run 15 minutes [AM], Jillian Michaels 6 Week 6 Pack [PM]

Friday: Run 15 minutes [AM], Friday 5k [PM]

Saturday: Run with the running group [wanting to hit a total of 8-10 miles] + BodyPump. I’m just obsessed.

Sunday: Nothing. I have really high aspirations of being ridiculously lazy.

I’ve been through several phases in my working out life regarding rest days and what I think of them. During some periods, I’ve taken 0 rest days for weeks on end. Other times, I’ll take 2-3. Right now, however, I’m finding that 1 day per week is working out well. As is having 2-3 days per week where I only have a 20-30 minute workout in the afternoons. I feel good and I’m [mostly] motivated to keep training [I use that term loosely, because I have a grand total of zero races in mind right now].

And that’s all I’ve got today. I just can’t be bothered to brainstorm anything else to write about.

How many rest days do you take per week?

Please tell me someone else out there made really poor decisions on Sunday as well. Please. Smile
