It's the Week in Review!

So, I wanted to take a minute and look back at my workouts last week, and set some goals for the upcoming week. I also want to try to do it in an entertaining way, which may or may not happen...

Monday, 1/31: Turbofire 45 EZ (modified for knee issues)
Tuesday, 2/1: Ran 2.6 miles on track (yay), a little tiny bit of back work at the gym
Wednesday, 2/2: Turbofire Fire 30 (I think, having trouble remembering)
Thursday 2/3: Ran 3 miles outside. Awesome!
Friday 2/4: Pure and Simple Yoga, Eoin Finn
Saturday 2/5: 4.2 mile run
Sunday 2/6: Rest day. Did some stretching and a little core. Took a nap with baby instead of doing housework.

My goals for the upcoming week:
Monday, 2/7: Total body weights (Jari Love or Cathe Friedrich)
Tuesday, 2/8: Run 3 miles; core
Wednesday, 2/9: Total body weights (Jari or Cathe)
Thursday, 2/10: Run 3 miles; core
Friday, 2/11: Total body weights or Turbofire
Saturday, 2/12: Run 5 miles (Or try to do 4.2 mile loop faster)
Sunday, 2/13: Rest or yoga

So, I'm trying something different. I'm looking at my training all as "ways to keep me running better". So, the strength training is TO HELP ME RUN BETTER. The stretching and core is TO HELP ME RUN BETTER. Let's see how it goes.

I also kind of decided that, although I want to work on 2 hours a day every day, I just can't. I'm only training for a half marathon right now, not a full. I'm not training for a body building competition. Yes, I want to lose weight, but I'm not going to make that my goal. My goal is to run better. And parent, of course.

I've only been a mother of 2 for five months now. I'm still getting adjusted. I can't do everything. My house will not be clean and organized for a while. I need to be okay with that, and at least keep it clean enough so everyone has socks and there aren't bugs living in the carpet.

I love you, Monday. Bring it on.

LOL. Yes, you're right, it is impossible to do it all. If running and your kids are your priority, then you will NOT have a clean house all the time. It is impossible. And don't let anyone tell you that it isn't. There just isn't enough time in the day. Good for you for keeping up with all that you do! You see I didn't post a "Workout Wednesday" last week? I haven't found the time! Good Grief! I need to get it together! LOL
