The Ides of March

The Ides of March came one day early for me when I feel walking up the stairs of the EL today completely wiping out and causing a back up in pedestrian traffic. Truthfully this is not a rare occurrence for me, I manage to have major wipe outs often even though I am 27 years old. If I have not figured out how to put one foot in front of the other by now, Lord help me when I'm in my elderly years.

My niece Allison, that lives in Dallas, turns 5 tomorrow. She is a spunky little tot, and I enjoy her company. I think that she will definitely grow up to be a comedian.

Doug is awesome with kids, he will be an amazing father one day...don't get excited D that doesn't mean today (D has caught a bit of baby fever).

This week is a recovery week for me, which couldn't have come at a better time. Daylight savings time has me messed up, and I need a few days to adjust my sleeping patterns to be able to tackle the 60+ mile weeks ahead successfully. I crawled out of bed a bit after 9 this morning only because I had to get to the post office after hitting snooze about 12 times.

Sadly again this morning I didn't make it to my resistance training date that I made for myself. Generally I am great keeping my a.m. dates at the gym to pump some iron, but for the past several months I have skipped quite a few. Honestly I think its because I have been living in giant sweaters and yoga pants all winter and have no concept of what my body really looks like under all those layers of bulk.

This week I WILL fit in 3 resistance training sessions, and 2 yoga sessions. I have made a promise to myself, and I can't not let myself down.

This weeks plan:

Monday: 7.65 steady state run in 56 mins
Tuesday: 7 miler on treadmill at 2% incline
Wednesday: 6 miler easy
Thursday: 6 miles with 5/4/3/2/1 at tempo pace (was supposed to do this workout almost two weeks ago and didn't...whoops)
Friday: 6 miles easy
Saturday: 8 mile progressive run

And I have to try to find a CPR class to take. Happy Monday.

  1. I can sympathize on the whole walking... I'm a bit of a klutz myself. Good luck with your resistance training and yoga this week! I really need to add in more to my workout routine than just running.
