You Must Have a Plan..


Well, thankfully, I do.

But before we get to this week's plan, let's review last week:

Monday: Back/Rear Delts/Abs: Done; 3 mile run: Done
Tuesday: Legs (OMG Done).
Wednesday: 2 mile run (I may have scheduled 3. But my legs almost fell off, so I was playing it safe).
Thursday: Shoulders/Rear Delts/Abs: Done.
Friday: Chest/Arms/Calves: Done
Saturday: 6 mile run. Umm....

Yes, me and running are having some issues. Here's how the weekend went.

Friday night: "I have to run 6 miles in the morning. I'm going to run 6 miles in the morning. I'm really looking forward to that Snickers."

Saturday morning. "Snooze.""Snooze, again." "Oh, look, the whole family slept until 9 freaking o'clock. I haven't done that since my 20s!"

After realizing my husband was just too busy getting ready for that night's gig, I decided there would be no run. Instead, I did Turbofire Hiit 30.

Saturday night, 6:00 pm: "I'm going to run early tomorrow morning."
Saturday night, 9:00 pm: "I wish these kids would go to sleep. I have to wake up at 5:00 to run."
Saturday night, 11:00 pm: "Why won't you people go to sleep???!!!!"
Sunday morning, 5:00 am: [to alarm]: "Shut Up."
Sunday morning, 5:15 am: "It's raining really hard. Good thing I'm not running right now. Guess I won't be running this weekend."

So, that's how that went. Full of excuses....

Which leads me to the plan for this week:

Monday: Back/Rear Delts/Abs; quick run (1-2 miles)
Tuesday: LEG DAY!
Wednesday: Run 3 miles
Thursday: Shoulder/Rear Delts/Abs
Friday: Chest/Arms/Calves
Saturday: 6 mile run. For realz.

Now, the gym is going to be closed on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. (One of the benefits to a campus recreation center: Free membership. One of the drawbacks: They close a lot). So, I'll have to make sure I wake up in time on Thursday and Friday to do my workouts before work. And, I'll have to make sure I wake up in time to run on Saturday. This is the week. I know it. I will finally eat that Snickers.

Do you have a plan?

Have a great week!
