As we head into tech and opening week (I'm going to combine them together as "hell weeks" since there's debate about which week is actually more hell-y) I sat down to think about my workout plans and such and decided it was time to scale back a little. Not a lot... but a little. I can eat a couple hundred fewer calories in a day, and save myself some time and physical stress. It'll probably be good for my budget, sanity, and recovering shoulder all!
In deference to the shoulder, most of my workouts are going to be on the recumbent bike, since I don't need arms at all for that. I'll do a little upper body with pilates but that's easy to modify it it turns out to be too much. If it ever stops thunderstorming I'll try a very little pool time today too to see how that feels.
So... the plan looks like this...
Monday - bike for 50 minutes, pilates, pool attempt (maybe) calories burned 1000ish
Tuesday - bike 45 minutes, walk 20 minutes on incline - calories burned 900
Wednesday - bike 45 minutes, pilates - calories burned 900
Thursday - rest
Friday - bike 50 minutes, pilates, walk or swim 20 minutes - calories burned 1200
That leaves me 500 calories short, which I'm leaving alone to be eaten up by the dancing in rehearsal. It also leaves two rest days (except for the rehearsal on Thursday).
I like having a plan, but boy do I want to get back to lifting ASAP!
