If I could sum up this week in one word, it would be, emphatically: FAIL.
I really feel like I did jack diddly this week. Which, I guess isn’t exactly fair, since I ran a race and attended a yoga class. But that was pretty much it.
There was bad weather, residual exhaustion from being sick, and a few other obligations that really ate into my training time. I feel incredibly guilty about it all, and no matter how much I try to remind myself that things happen, I’m mad at my lack of dedication.
Sunday: rest, .75 miles of dog walking
Monday: Memorial Day 5K (recap to come), .75 miles of dog walking
Tuesday: rest, .75 miles of dog walking. I debated going to my power flow yoga class, but I woke up not feeling great and didn’t want to push it.
Wednesday: 60 minute sunrise yoga, 1.5 miles of dog walking
Thursday: rest, .75 miles of dog walking. I had planned for speed work, but no. Just no. Plus I had to get started on the three cakes I need to make for the weekend, so time was limited.
Friday: I am setting my alarm. Even if I manage to eek out a mile, I need to get something done. Hopefully, I will be back to edit this with some great success story. (UPDATE: I didn’t get up).
Saturday: Something good will happen today. I know it.
I’m incredibly annoyed because this isn’t some early summer rut. I am motivated. I have races on the calendar and a big, fat 26.2 mile goal hanging over my head. I have the plan and the will and all the pieces to be put in place. And somehow, I’m just not making it happen. I need to figure that out.
How was your week of workouts?
How do you get yourself going when everything is in place for successful training, but things get derailed?
