OK, so I know I’ve been MIA this past week. Maybe you’ve noticed, my guess is probably not. There was so much going on this week. My training was okay, not as on par as I wanted, but not terrible.
My cousin gave birth to her first child. She didn’t find out what it was, so it was a surprise for everyone! It was a boy!
Also, my oldest friend (I met her on the first day of high school, so we’ve been friends more that 1/2 our lives) got married on Friday! That’s right, Friday, when we had snow. Me and her, we’re apparently destined to do things 3 months apart. Our birthdays our 3 months apart. We got engaged 3 months apart. And now we’re getting married 3 months apart. Both of us are wishing this does not apply to having kids as well.
We also got to take my friend out for her birthday and celebrate like grown-ups! She has 2 little girls, so we rarely get to go out together.
There were also some downsides. My mom had surgery (don’t worry, she’s OK now, still recovering, but getting better day by day) and Mariano Rivera announced his retirement. Fine, maybe Mo’s announcement is not on the same scale as my mom’s news, but it’s still pretty depressing for me (going through the 5 stages of grief).
I’m also going through a whole lot of stress and anxiety about my own upcoming wedding. It’s now less than 3 months away. And as it gets closer and closer, the more I’m over it. I’m over everything. There is so much going on this year, that it just seems like everything is more important that our wedding. That our wedding isn’t even about us. I don’t know. It’s hard to explain on here without going on a massively long rant, so I’ll just leave it at I just feel like crap about it, and I know that’s not how I am supposed to feel.
Alright, enough of the self-wallowing…onto the pathetic training recap!
Monday – 2 x 1200m 2min RI, 4 x 800m 2 min RI. Total miles: 4.25
Tuesday – Session with Trainer. Dinner: Baked Ziti with mult-grain pasta.
Wednesday – Lazy day
Thursday – Took care of Mom
Friday – Session with Trainer, including more BOXING! Also, dancing for hours (in heels) at a wedding
Saturday – 1 easy mile, 2 MT miles, 1 easy mile. Supposed to do another 2 MT miles and 1 easy, but ran out of time :/
Sunday – Lazy day. Dinner: Burgers and Pierogies.
I’ve decided to stop kidding myself in calling my “rest days,” “rest days.” The fact is, more often than not, but the time I get home from work, or whatever, I’m sometimes just too lazy to run or workout. I try and push through it, but sometimes, there’s just no pushing which usually leads to me being disappointed in myself
But, on the plus side I am still LOVING boxing. I am dripping in sweat, feeling my muscles burn, and having fun the entire time! It’s awesome. Good way to let out frustration too.
I have still yet to do a run longer than 7.5 miles (since the W&D half). My friend, whom I’m running my upcoming half with, pointed out that it’s only 5 weeks away. And some more panic sets in.
I WILL DO A LONG RUN THIS WEEK! So shall it be written! So shall it be done! …now I just need someone to force me out there :/
