Good evening friends! I really need to find a better routine to get the Monday post up in the morning instead of pecking it out late. But man. Life. This was me this morning:
I was rushing around this morning trying to get everything done and yelling at everyone who would not comply with my urgent routine. My poor family…type A to the worse degree here! Lunches packed, coffee brewed, get kid started on his routine, get polished for work…except I’m the exact opposite of polished…witness:
Then I get to work and discover that yours truly will be working late tonight due to a co-worker calling out sick. Life happens. I know. But maaaaaan. Then on the way home to take lunch break part two I realized that this day wasn’t all so bad. Just my narly ‘tude. Even though I was late to work with sloppy hair, it didn’t impede on my ability to rock out scripts left and right. And even though I have to work late tonight it gave me the opportunity to take a second lunch break to squeeze in some additional study time. And the sun is shining. So instead of being boxed up all day I got to see mr golden sun. And at home on lunch I indulged in dark chocolate. That always helps re-direct my negative ‘tude towards more positive vibes. Oh, and since I didn’t get much sleep this past weekend (this almost always affects my attitude…I NEED sleep and lots of it.) and only had time to down one cup of coffee this morning I was crashing…BUT NUUN came to my rescue. I have been keeping some tabs in my purse and thank God I did! NUUN Energy perked me right up. NUUN isn’t just for training. It’s a great everyday hydrating, energy boosting beverage when needed.
Silver linings friends. Sometimes, a lot of times, it’s all a matter of ‘tude and your own personal perspective.
There. Now that that’s out of the way…last week I was able to get in all my planned runs but little to no weight training and zero yoga. This seems to be a constant challenge for me lately. So this month’s goal(s):
- make that strength training happen!
- make time for yoga and unwind time.
- pass my NASM exam (EEEK).
- stop freaking out over everything.
Here’s my weekly mileage line-up:
Tuesday: 8 miles w/3 mile repeats
Wednesday: 9 miles w/7@MP + yoga
Thursday: 4 easy + strength training
Friday: 5 easy
Saturday: 5 easy
Sunday: 20 LSD
Total mileage goal: 51
