Okay, so I mentioned on my Facebook page that I wanted to write about baby carrying next. Well, that post just never came flowing, so I'll write something else. Wait for it though, babywearers--the time will come! And I'll hopefully pair it with some fun workout moves, so we'll just say I'm waiting until I have a decent camera, mkay?
Instead, I've decided to share with you all my workout "schedule". I write it like that because it never happens the way I plan it to. Here's what it looks like:
Monday--up at 7am, 1hr run
Tuesday--up at 7:30, 45 mins strength/yoga
Wednesday--up at 7am, 1hr run
Thursday--up at 7:30, 45 mins strength/yoga
Friday--up at 7am, 1hr run. Evening yoga by candlelight class
Saturday--free day, since I've worked so very hard!
Sunday--long run, aiming for 14 miles
Actual schedule, as life happens:
Monday--sleep in, frantic 3mile run that evening while hubby makes dinner
Tuesday--Thomas wakes up with me, cranky kid all day, short stroller jog if I'm lucky
Wednesday--up by 7:30 because I slept in, pushed Tuesday's strength training until today
Thursday--Annalie is up all night, so sleep in again. Another frantic evening run.
Friday--finally wake up on time, but drank coffee slowly, just a 45 min run. Order Greek food instead of going to yoga.
Saturday--free day, because we're simply too busy for me to work out. I feel guilty.
Sunday--tired from Saturday, so the long run becomes 10 miles.
So yeah. My goal of 32 miles/week and 2 strength sessions quickly turns into 18 miles/week and one short strength session. It's still pretty great and I enjoy it all. And I get better with time. But I remind myself that every bit counts. A year ago, I would have been super duper impressed with the second schedule. So there, old me!
Hubby has suggested that a good solution is to set a goal for myself on the blog, and that the goal affects all of us in the family. His idea was to count my mileage starting next Monday (easy with a Garmin--get one!!!) and then by vacation time next year, the number of miles I build up is the number of miles away that we're allowed to take vacation. So, I'm not sure if he has tons of faith in me, or if he's just not very bright. But I'll pretend it's the first one, and I'll take the challenge!!! So, I now need to figure out how to put a fancy running ticker thingy on the side of the blog and count towards a super awesome vacation! Though, I'm fairly sure Hawaii will be out...
Tell me your obstacles and goals, I'd love to hear them!
