Week 1 - Mid-Week Check-in
Friday, April 27, 2018
I'm putting mid-week even though it's Friday because my run plan runs through Sunday. So far this week I completed:
Monday - OFF
Tuesday - 3 mile run and ST on arms/shoulders/back
Wednesday - boxing and ST
Thursday - 3 mile run
Today I have off. Scheduled rest day. I think I'm going to do a lot of stretching to manage these hips of mine!
Saturday - 3 miles
Sunday - 3 miles
That's it. And it's amazing that I know I CAN do those. I'm getting better mentally about knowing I can, which makes it easier to make myself when I don't want to - like yesterday. I was in bed sick all morning. The headache, the cramps...it was NOT a good day. I allowed myself to be a sicko until 3:30, and then I got off my bum, got dressed in my running gear and finished out my day like a champ.
Took kid to get haircut - ran while he was doing that - changed - went to booster meeting - came home and got to eat dinner with my men and watch a little TV before drifting off to sleep again.
Today I feel better. Tight in my hips, but not too bad. I have a crapton of work to do - especially since I missed yesterday - but I'll work a little this weekend and get it done.
This has to be the first weekend in a long time when I don't have anything really scheduled. And it feels amazing! My town is doing a big Civil War Reenactment event that I could go to. On of my best friends' daughters is turning 15 and they're having a little party that I might stop by to for a bit to visit my friend (and maybe get in a little chatting and wine drinking girl time). The only thing I HAVE to do is run 3 miles each day this weekend. Everything else is up to me! Oh, and the kids will be over Sunday night for dinner, of course, so I gotta prep that - nothing big. Maybe I'll get a little me-time reading or bath pampering in. Maybe not. Who knows!?
I probably sound insane, but the fact that this weekend isn't jam-packed with all the things is a seriously rare thing for me! I'm going to enjoy the blase-faire or laissez-faire of the whole thing. (I'm not exactly apathetic, but I certainly can't be bothered this week to get involved in anyone else's anything so... I'ma do what I want...)
