Exxxxcuse me while I dust my shoulders off.
I have had two really awesome weeks of training (I only put three weeks on my fridge at a time so I donâ€™t psych myself out â€“ it seems to work). Iâ€™ve done all my â€˜minimumâ€™ workouts and even squeezed in two bonus swims. However, my current pattern seems to be â€œkick ass for two weeks, blow off the thirdâ€ so this week is the real test. Iâ€™m definitely determined to have another good week, but Iâ€™m a little nervous â€“ 21 miles in a week is a LOT.
I started the week off with a bang with a swim workout. Iâ€™m pretty sore from yesterdayâ€™s long run so I stopped at 750 yards instead of my normal 1000. I absolutely love doing a swim after my long run day â€“ it really seems to loosen everything up.
We are oh-so-low on groceries. We normally shop on Sundays but went on Friday instead. And somehow, weâ€™ve already wiped out our entire haul (how?!?!). This was the end of all the good stuff.
Grilled tofu â€“ on the George Foreman â€“ with quinoa, veggies, and squash.
Off to go work. I wish it was my day to watch Henry. Iâ€™d rather be playing.
At least we got to have lunch together. <3 Tables are yummy.
Anyone else go through workout patterns â€“ a few weeks of awesomeness and a week of meh? Whatâ€™s the key for breaking the cycle? Iâ€™m hoping that since this week is free of holidays and work trips, Iâ€™ll stay on track!
