Last Saturday I walked a 10k with a friend. It was organized by a women run event production company and it was fantastic. From their website:
|Getting rabbit ears.|
Wednesday was my first day back on my normal schedule, and by then I was just wiped out. Thursday and Friday nights I had plans both nights so nothing resembling a workout happened on those days. I was feeling incredibly over-scheduled last week and was mentally just trying to get to Sunday - the day when I finally had nothing planned. I spent a good deal of Saturday walking around Home Depot picking paint, tile, and flooring options for our upcoming bathroom project and spent about an hour pulling weeds. Does that count as exercise? And yesterday I spent the entire day watching the Walking Dead marathon and putting my house back together from a crazy week of running around - laundry, cleaning, going through the huge pile of mail, etc.
I know I could have done a better job of carving out some time for a workout - mornings before work, a walk at lunchtime. But last week it took all of my mental energy just to get through the week and what I absolutely had to do.
I'm happy to say that I'm feeling much more well rested and have my swim bag ready to go for tonight. And I'm planning on hitting up spin class tomorrow night. But what comes next is still up in the air.
As I've mentioned before, I have a free entry for a triathlon next month. But I'm just not sure if I want to do it. Let me take that back...I know I want to do it, but I'm not sure if I want to train for it. I haven't been on my bike since April and have no desire to ride it. I'd love to be able to go to spin class three times a week, but there is no substitute for time on the road. The ride is only 11 miles so I know I can do the distance even if I only do spin between now and then. But if I do this race, I want to go into it with more than just a "to finish" attitude.
Race day is still 8 weeks away so I'm going to give it another two weeks or so to decide.
