Damn. Life has been straight up busy. It feels like it was just yesterday that I wrote my last post but it was over a week ago.
The good news is, I am alive!
But what a couple of weeks it has been.
It has been hard, mostly on a personal front, I have a lot that has happened and a lot of challenges have been presented and I just didn't have too much to report nor is this fun little fitness blog the outlet for those (at least at the moment while it is all happening) so I just had to step away.
I just needed to break from social media for a bit. I haven't been on instagram or facebook much and am still yet to start up with twitter! But I'm back now!
I returned from Indianapolis late Monday night (thank you very much planes not showing up and flight delays...)
While my last post was discussing the challenges I faced trying to get in my training while I was working 12 hour days and at dinners/late nights each night.
I am happy to report I somehow still managed to get in a 30 mile week.
It was a matter of grabbing runs when I could. Meant a lot of speedier short runs and lacked a long run, but running was just the name of the game. If I had a break for an hour I was going to run 3 miles shower up and get back to work. I didn't sleep a lot and was the most shocked that I did not wind up sick by the end lasting on 4 hours of sleep most of the time.
I got back on Monday night and even though I didn't get to bed until after 1am (I am stickler for unpacking and doing laundry right away, thank you type A) I was up and in the gym at 5:30 to get back to business as usual Tuesday morning.
I managed to get in some great workouts and with some juggling got my schedule to "normal":
Monday - rest day
Tuesday - 4 miles morning / 6 miles night
Wednesday - lifting morning / 6 miles night
Thursday - full body lift morning
Friday - 4.5 miles morning
Normalcy feels great when it comes to my workouts. When I am unable to stick to my schedule I just don't feel "right". I am such a schedule person.
I am also happy that the weather seems to be warming up some so I can probably start ditching the treadmill more! Woo! This cold weather wuss can't wait.
So there we have it. I have lots to report and other things to discuss on the running front but for now I am happy that I am home, have a day off (it's been 2 weeks without!) and can just rest up a little bit.
Oh and HAPPY MARCH! We are inching our way closer and closer to Spring and I for one am ecstatic about that!
