Best Laid Plans

So last week, my training schedule got screwy.  I fell asleep at 6:30 on Thursday night, skipping swim.  Got up and swam before work.  Awesome.  Saturday morning, I got up and my quads were still achy, but I planned to head out for a run.

Then I took a look around my house.

With all the training and work crazyness, the first thing to drop was my housekeeping.

I mean, the dishes were done (thank you, dishwasher) and I have been keeping up with laundry (otherwise I wouldn’t have anything to wear), but other than that, the house was just a disaster.

So instead of working out on Saturday, I cleaned, did yardwork, and ran errands.  All things I’ve been putting off.

I can’t say that the house looks substantially cleaner than it did when I started, but I managed to check a number of things off of the “to-do” list, so that’s a plus.

Sunday morning, I got up and planned to head on the group ride.  Checked the status on Facebook before heading out and saw that the ride was cancelled.  Whoops.  Should have checked that earlier.  But I had planned to ride, so I decided to head out anyway and see what I could get done on the course.  I chose to ride the same course I rode last week, since it was fresh in my head (hills and all) and I made it through without too much trouble (and within minutes of the time I did it in last week – not bad since this ride included a dropped chain).

After that, it was off to a Team Fight fundraiser and a crab feast.  YUM.  Best way to refuel after a long ride.

So the weekend didn’t go as planned, but I still feel like I accomplished a lot.  Now, onto a new week!

  1. I’m with you. This weekend the house HAD to be done. I’d been worse off than you…my dishwasher sat with clean dishes as the dirties piled up in the sink. I knew things were bad when I pulled a skirt out of the laundry last week, ironed it and put it on. Sigh.

    The price of a social, healthy life.

  2. You ironed, Chrissy? That’s FANCY. I would have just hung it in the bathroom while I showered, then declared it good enough.
