Another week of boring running in the books…
That’s one-way to start a post right? If you live on the East Coast, you know last week was extremely hot and humid. I would love to tell you I missed seriously training in the weather, but I didn’t. Training in the 90s doesn’t appeal to me.
On a life standpoint, I do feel like the heat really takes it out of me. During the last few years, I used to be fine in the heat, but this summer I’m exhausted almost every single day I come home! I’m thinking about joining the local neighborhood swim club for the month of August, just so I can soak up some Vitamin D while being lazy in the evening. (That should go in a training log right?)
To be honest, each week I contemplate not writing a training or workout log. I’m not exciting, I’m basically running easy, and nothing is ever eventful. Heck, I’m not even cross training much right now. I feel like maybe I should even give up for a while on the runner and healthy living and blogger track. It doesn’t help that many runners only post training on Instagram anyway now.
But here I am, still blogging. Which is probably where I will stay. I’m still busy with work, volunteering, and life. This post probably takes about 30 minutes at the most so somehow I keep writing it. Plus it’s not like I’m running while eating breakfast…
Enough of my rambles:
|Monday:||30 minutes running|
|Tuesday:||1-hour AlterG (75% body weight)|
|Wednesday:||30 minutes easy|
|Friday:||30 minutes easy|
|Saturday:||1 hour AlterG (75% body weight)|
|Sunday:||30 minutes easy|
I could tell you that cross training is important and doing strength good will keep you injury free, blah blah blah. I know these things, but right now I’m not prioritizing any of it. As I mentioned on Thursday, I’m trying to do something active most days.
Don’t get me wrong, I am loving life, but running is just not a priority right now.
Questions for you:
Why do you blog? I ask myself this often. In the last 6 years, I think there are still maybe 2 bloggers I follow that still blog. It’s not my full time, and I’m not even that exciting.
How was your week of training?
