Strength Training Totals
Monday : 1 45-minute circuit session
My goals for this week were 3 strength training sessions (my usual), 3 yoga sessions (slipping, I admit) and a 52mi/83.68km distace week in running. As you can see from the above totals, this didn’t happen.
I had two runs (Saturday and Sunday) fall shorter than planned : Saturday was bad timing, Sunday was a distance mis-calculation. That sort of thing doesn’t usually happen as I can usually see my distance on my watch with my footpod, but my watch still hasn’t come back from being serviced.
With holiday gift-making, helping out at Guppy’s school with various seasonal events (including all-day Friday) have had me stretched for time, and I know that I need to keep some perspective – 2 years ago this time I was in a cast and couldn’t walk without crutches, and last year at this time I was just barely getting back on my feet. I’m happy I could do what I did this week, but sure wish it could have been more.
This coming week is going to be yet even crazier as we’ll be heading out of town for a few days for the Christmas holiday, and probably driving back home on Sunday. I’m not sure how the long run is going to happen, if it does, or how I’ll juggle my schedule to make it work.
How do you deal with training over the holiday season?
