So, I went from a season of sloth to running full-tilt, with about 24 hour’s transition time.
My BRF and I have decided to take on a 3 times a week weight training plan to improve our strength before marathon training begins and we’ve decided to train for a “fast 5K” somewhere around July 4th weekend, to improve our strength. While both of these are “good”, both together is a bit tough to schedule.
In all our planning, we have recently discovered a distinct lack of rest days. We are on week 3 and our burn-out risk is super high!
It’s so difficult! We want to do all of these great things but we just don’t have the time! As much as I hate to say it, I think either my beloved Friday boot camp (and optional Wednesday one) will have to go or be replaced by a weight day. So sad! (I never thought I’d see the day where I was sad about missing boot camp…)
What’s the point of this post? Hell if I know. I’m tired. And hungry. (Ohmygod! I’m more hungry now than during marathon training! Send food!)
Meanwhile, my new FitBit is getting snarky with my routine 6 hours of sleep. It actually told me that one day’s workout was going to hurt worse because I didn’t get enough sleep in a certain stage the night before. Not helping!!
So, that’s my news. Oh, and I apparently have a trail half marathon in two weeks. Huh. Good times, y’all!
