Well, nothing ever comes from hiding the truth, so I figured I’d do a workout recap for last week even though it wasn’t pretty.
Monday – Monday was a tough day that I have yet to write about, but I spent the morning at my grandpa’s funeral, and was at the airport by 4 that afternoon to fly home. I got home around 9:30 and absolutely crashed.
Tuesday – Had a run scheduled. Instead, I rode my bike for 60 minutes. No pushing, just an easy ride. It was about all I could handle.
Wednesday – Back to choir rehearsals. Concerts this weekend, so that means 7-10 rehearsals MWF (which I missed on Monday).
Thursday – Skipped swim, since I knew I would get home late and did Tuesday’s 4 mile run.
Friday – Rehearsals.
Saturday – Got up, went to the Cathedral, sang a concert, ate lunch and sat in the sun for a bit, sang another concert, came home, ate dinner, and crashed into bed. Concerts should not be this hard on my body.
Sunday – Forced myself up for at least one workout. I had a bike and a run scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, and opted to get in the longer workout of the two. So I ran a sluggish 8 miles. It actually wasn’t as bad as I feared it would be. It probably helped that my brain was exhausted. And then I went and sang another choir concert.
So if you’re counting, that means I got in 2.5 of the 6 workouts scheduled for the week (Tuesday’s bike counts as half, because it was something, but not the workout I needed.) That said, I pushed the missed weekend bike into the next week, so I’m finally getting back on track.
