It’s been an interesting week this week and whilst I had planned for my training to be as consistent as it usually is, it didn’t happen.
I had it all planned. A solid week of quality training.
I blame the dog.
Mid week our dog attacked a cane toad (link for those of you that aren’t familiar with the horrid things) and my husband had to rush her to the vet as they can kill dogs. So that was a very late night for us and I ended up sleeping in the next morning and then it was too hot outside and in the gym to train – so excuse number one!
To make up for all of that I went and did BodyPump as that part of the gym does have air con and I pushed it and was very sorry afterwards. Not having done Pump regularly for a while it was a very silly thing to do and as I sit writing this today I am still aching four days later and my butt and thighs feel like they have lead weights in them, so as a result my planned longer run today was agony and I cut it short – excuse number two.
AND as well as that I missed my sprint session yesterday because I literally couldn’t get out of bed my legs were hurting that much – excuse number three!
I have friends that I know would force themselves to train but unfortunately (or fortunately 🙂 depends how you look at it) I am not always as strong willed, so took the opportunity to stay in bed snoozing with my husband.
So it hasn’t been the best week of training but I’ve managed to do two sprint sessions, one medium run and a longer run as well as body pump so that’s not too bad but I know I’ve made too many excuses and not trained as well as I should.
So tomorrow is another day and next week is another week – so I’m ready to start afresh and keep on running.
