Sorry for being MIA on the blog last week. Last week was a busy and tiring one to say the least, and it shows in last week’s workouts too. I missed a day on my run streak already, but am still going to finish it out with hopefully no more days off!
Anyways, here’s the day-by-day breakdown:
Monday: After getting in around 1 AM Sunday night and still having to get my run in, it was not too easy waking up Monday morning. I slept right through my alarm and fortunately woke up in time for work meaning my run would wait till later. I made it to the gym for just a mile and some core work.
Tuesday: Still recovering from lack of sleep, Tuesday was another one mile and limited core work day.
Wednesday: Wednesday was more of the same – just over a mile on the treadmill and a little bit of core work.
Thursday: Thursday is when the wheels started to come off. I was supposed to have a work-trade shift up at Revolve in the AM, but woke up at 6 to an email that I needed to be in to work by 8. Knowing I wouldn’t get my ride in I ran the half mile too and from Revolve to still help out with set up and cleaning before class…in jeans. A late night at work too meant I didn’t get to enjoy the beautiful 70-degree weather, but oh well, there will be more days like that…eventually.
Friday: Today is when my run streak came to an end. I didn’t get in my core work either. I slept in as late as I could before work and traded in the gym for four hours of playing Nintendo with Ian and an early night. Waking up well-rested for the first time all week on Saturday made this totally worth it.
Saturday: 20 minutes on the treadmill. P90X ab workout. 20 minutes on the elliptical.
Sunday: I got in a quick mile on the treadmill and a core workout followed by a great barre ride at Revolve.
I love that you are sticking with the streak after taking a day off and not letting it get to you! I need to work on that!
I have definitely taken the all or none approach before, so I’m trying to do better with that this time around. I heard a really good analogy when things start falling apart in either your workout or healthy eating plans and you want to just give up completely – if you got a flat tire, would you ever just puncture the other 3 and call it a day? I figure I’ll apply that to this and not give up on the rest of the month since I missed one day!
Still a solid week of working out. Maybe less running that you’ve liked, but I love that you are committed to getting something in! Always better than nothing 🙂
Absolutely! I’ve also been enjoying being able to take it a bit easy, but am also really looking forward to getting back on a training plan in a couple weeks for the Sharmrock Half!!
