Weekly updates and surviving when things don't go as planned

I debated even doing a weekly post this week, I lost it…my motivation has disappeared, my acceptance of not running is gone instead these are replaced by frustration and lack of motivation for another minute of indoor workout! But would I be honest if I only shared my good weeks…I did manage to do PT exercises daily so that’s a bonus. The week ended with a glass of wine and wanting to run.

A fried sent me this and I think I need it!

Monday: BB Shoulders/core and T25 Speed
Tuesday: Yoga and 1 hour elliptical
Wednesday: BB Back/Bicep and T25 Alpha Cardio
Thursday: BB Back/Biceps
Friday:  BB Chest/Tris and Yoga T25 Core Cardio
Saturday: 2 hour Elliptical and 15 min Rowing and core
Sunday: Work BB Back/Biceps and P90X+ Kenpo (Love it!) 1 hour walk with Cooper

Today is a new week and a new month so I am focused I can do this. 8 days until I see the doctor!

Monday: P90X+ Intervals and BB Chest/Core
Tuesday: BB Legs and 1 hour elliptical or considering a new dance class
Wednesday: BB Back/Core and T25 Alpha Cardio
Thursday: BB Arms
Friday:  BB Shoulders/Core and Spin or Yoga
Saturday: 90 min Elliptical and 30 min Rowing
Sunday: BB Chest/Core and Bike

I just keep reminding myself the focus is running strong, I can survive another 8 days! This past weekend O had her annual gymnastics show and got to show us her new skills. Such a little gymnast and she loves it. How was your last week? Goals for this week?

  1. I know it's frustrating Jen! But it's for the best! You are going to be a much stronger runner! O is a super cute gymnast! My Sawyer LOVES his gymnastics too! Have a great week!

    1. Thanks Mindy! I love watching the kids at gymnastcs :)

  2. It's very frustrating to be out, I know I was out of running for 2 years for a bad work injury:) It's tough, but the time off will be worth it. 8 more days you can do it!
    Very cute little one on the bars, wow that takes me back to my own youth gymnastic days, good memories!

    1. 2 years, wow! I can handle this, 4 weeks now will mean no more injury!
