I don’t want to turn this blog into a space where I complain about how much work my Education Practicum Studies are this semester but it has greatly affected my workouts and my running schedule. You know how everyone tells you “schedule it in” “stop making excuses” “there’s always time” well those are the voices that go through my head every day and it’s really adding a lot of pressure and stress on my long days.
I had to tell myself that it was time to take the pressure off and I had to accept that I can’t train like I want to at this moment in my life. The past couple of days have gone like this:
- 6:30-8- Get up, get ready, eat breakfast, drink coffee
- 8-9- Drive/ride my bike to school
- 9-12 Class
- 12-1- Lunch
- 1-4- Class
- 4-5- Drive/bike home
- 5-6- Make dinner and eat.
- 6-9:30- Homework
- 9:30- Get ready for bed
- 10- Bed
No joke. Those have been my days. Like I said last week, if I can get myself up an hour earlier I can squeeze in a workout but dude- 5:30 am? Start my day at 5:30 am? Or stay up later than 10 pm? No way! I’ve always been a sleeper and I can’t function without a lot of sleep.
I mean, I do have to ride my bike from the stadium parking lot to the bike racks and that’s 0.8 miles each way so I’m biking 1.5 miles. Ha ha ha!
Here’s my week last week:
Saturday- 8 mile long run
Monday- 2 mile run
OMG! I had put dinner in the oven and it was going to take 45 minutes so I decided that would be a great time to fit in a fast run. So I do a fast 2 miles-ish and when I get back home, the roast is still sitting on top of the oven! I had forgotten to put it in! AHHH!
I’m telling myself it’s ok to have the days where I miss workouts because I have to stop beating myself up about it. If I can make sure to workout both days of the weekend and to get at least one workout in the week I’ll have to call it good.
I did sign up for hot yoga today after class/work because I really need to quiet my mind for a little bit. It’ll make this weekends study grind much easier!
How was your week in workouts?
Tips for Types A’s on how to let stuff go? I’m struggling. Ha ha!
