1. I got pretty excited on Monday when I looked at the weather for Tues and saw that it was going to be in the high 50s for the day!!! I had 1 and half hours of biking on the schedule for the day and thought if I don't have to get on my trainer, it would be the most wonderful thing in the world. So, I rode my tri bike into work, feeling a little stupid doing so. I was excited all day to ride and when the end of the day came I jumped right on my bike and rode down to haines. It ended up being a great ride and I rushed to finish my last lap as the sun started to set. I did however start to get a little cold near the end and I really couldn't feel my toes anymore. On a side note: after getting fitted I dropped my seat down because I felt like it was to high. Since moving my seat my knees have been hurting, so I know I messed up my fit. I did measure where it was and will be moving it back in hopes that will help.
2. The last two nights, I have been a mess and haven't been able to sleep at all. It can't tell you how much it sucks when you are so tired, but you can't go to sleep. Yesterday when my alarm went off at 6:15am to swim I actually got up and put my suit on them just crawled back into bed. I couldn't make myself go. I re-set the alarm for 7am so I could still go run. When it went off I just turned it off and went right back to bed. When I finally got up at 8 I just rolled out of bed and into my car to go to my aunts. I would have loved to stick with what was on my training plan for the day, but life just doesn't always work out that way. I felt disappointed and upset with myself for skipping the workouts and kept thinking it was going to be an unwanted rest day. It wasn't till 7pm when I was driving back home that I thought I could just flip flop my Wen. and Thurs. workouts. So, as soon as I got home I jumped onto my trainer and got an hour ride in. And to my surprise I actually enjoyed myself on the trainer! I think that may be a first :)
3. When my sister was in town last weekend I was talking to her about trying to fit in 3 x 1 minute planks before she goes to bed since she is super busy with work and two kids. Then I realized something, I was telling her to try something that I don't even do myself. So, I'm taking my own advice and will begin doing 3 x 1 minute planks before going to bed. I'm also going to get my own and only in on the action since he needs more core work for his cycling.
Are you flexible with your workouts? Or do you stick with what's on your training plan?
Happy Thurs. All :)
