Or weeks?? I just can't seem to get it together this week. There's nothing major wrong just little things keep tripping me up.
I over did it a little this weekend and had some serious muscle soreness. I went swimming Monday and it was a little tough as my upper arms/back were sore and kicking was an issue due to sore quads. Tuesday when I got up I was still a sore (more so than I thought I should be) and decided to put off my run. My plan was actually to run after cycling last night.
Trying to get to cycling last night proved to be too big a challenge. I left work a little late, so was off to a bad start. It was Mardi Gras and there were 2 big celebrations within blocks of each other creating a huge traffic nightmare. The normally 15 minute drive took me 45. Yea!!! So I got to the cycling location 30 minutes late. I didn't think it'd be a problem since we were riding the trainers. But I pulled into the parking lot I didn't see anyone. I drove around and around for 10 minutes and could not find one person or one car. I have the coaches cell phone numbers but of course had left the folder home. After looking everywhere I could think I gave up and went home. I thought I'd hop on the trainer at home but it was hubby's night to host poker so everyone was at my house and the studio where I workout has the bathroom the guys use. So that night didn't work out at all.
This morning I was planning on going swimming. My alarm went off at 5 and I swear I only hit the snooze once, but the next thing I knew it was almost 6. Ugh!!! I still could have made it if I had gotten my lunch ready last night, but I didn't. I figured I'd have plenty of time in the morning.
Why is this happening? I know that I'm undermining myself, but why?? I was thinking maybe it's cause I don't have a strict training plan. I'm just kind of floundering along. Earlier this year when I had a firm plan and a goal, I did great at getting my workouts in. I'm thinking I need to have a solid plan. I have a goal, my first tri is April 13th. So all that's really missing is a plan. Actually, my next race is Feb. 18th. But I'm basically trained and ready for that one. I'm looking towards the tri now.
Maybe it's time for a serious break. Maybe I'll go check out Winter Park real estate. Maybe I need a little snow and cold to shake me up some :)
Anyway, I'm going to try and get some work done and not screw anything else up.
