Marathon Training Day #30: Rain, rain go away

The new glasses. My mom says they look good with my grey hair. Thanks mom.

Worked late. Got groceries. Rain started to pour down. Was starving, so I ate. Digested my food. Read the internet. Emailed JK. It was still pouring. Then it was 9pm and I realized my evening was done.

So the workout never happened.

I need to get better at planning for days like this. Like, go running the second I get home or when JK suggests yoga, go the eff to yoga. Don’t come home tired, dwaddle, and realize that working out is an impossibility AND that I didn’t do anything productive home-wise, like clean the kitchen or make more bread or solve world hunger.

As for week 5, it means 10k on Wednesday, sprints on Thursday, rest on Friday, hills on Saturday and long run Sunday. It’s not the end of the world, but I’m not feeling great about where my priorities are right now. I need to get better at planning my workouts — and my life.

    Missing workouts due to poor planning happens to me more often than I’d like to admit. Especially running workouts because of the whole having to wait at least 2 hours after eating to digest, but by that time comes I’m hungry again. So I eat. Repeat until it’s too late to go for a run. Whoops.

      Ha, I’m so glad I’m not the only one! What bugs me the most is that I easily could have ran last night. I just didn’t actively structure my schedule to make it happen. Which begs the question: how committed am I to this whole thing if I’m letting stuff like this happen?
