As you have probably heard, the theme of this week over here on the east coast was rain, rain, and more rain. It just happened to be one of those weeks that was already particularly busy and stressful, and the weather just made it worse. I was never so happy to see Friday! This week was all about just continuing to put one foot in front of the other, both in running and in life.
Tuesday was actually a nice day, but it feels like a distance memory at this point. Although I woke up to the sound of thunder, it cleared out and I was able to get outside for a run. Other than that, I was on the treadmill.
On Thursday I had to be at an all day meeting about 55 minutes away. Knowing the weather would be bad, I planned to leave the house before 6:00. So I was on the treadmill at 4:30 to get in a workout. It was a good thing I left that early because there was already traffic when I left and it took me an hour and 35 minutes to get there. The drive home was even worse, around 2 hours.
I had a feeling I would be on the treadmill for Saturday’s run. I think I was prepared for it so it wasn’t so bad. At least I’ve been outside much more lately so a few days on the treadmill wasn’t a big deal. I also knew I could just run as little or as much as I felt like.
I finished up week 6 of my plan. I’m not sure when I will start a new phase because I’ll be away and won’t have access to any equipment. So I might repeat week 6 early this week and then try to start the next phase in early June.
My yoga worked this week wasn’t as intense as last week, but still a good one. I ended up doing spinning and yoga on the same day so my yoga routine was shorter.
I followed another workout video this week and worked up a good sweat. It’s been nice to push a little harder on the bike since my mileage has been on the lower side and I haven’t done any speedwork.
As I’ve said this week was hectic. Rob was away for work from Tuesday to Friday. I had to teach a course for teachers after school on Wednesday night. I felt like I did much more driving than usual this week and all the rain we had meant there was tons of traffic. Thursday and Friday I had all day meetings/conferences which meant I am way behind on my regular work. The good news is that May is always over which means hopefully things will settle down soon!
