Work has been so bananas that I haven’t taken a lunch break in the past two days and on Wednesday AM when my alarm went off I almost laughed out loud at the thought of getting up. And instead of working out after work I got a hair cut and ate Burger King.
I am sure it has to do with the post vacation lazies and the crazy work load this week but in addition to my lack of getting my workouts in, I also keep eating junk. I had Burger King in the middle of the week for cyring out loud. I usually save the fast food cravings for days that I’ve actually worked out.
Thus far I ran on Tuesday AM and Thursday AM. I’ll hopefully get to swim this evening, barring any rain and I’ll at least get my long run in tomorrow. I know that I need to be getting in more mileage and keep up my base before Miami training kicks in. I also know that I need to put the reigns on the craptacular eating binge I’ve been on.
I’m giving myself this week to be a sloth and next week I’ll be back to the grind. I know that I am hard on myself but come race days being my own toughest critic will be worth it.
I’m sorry I missed some of your blogs and am hoping to catch up on them this weekend. Happy Friday peeps. If you are racing – light it up!
slacker slacker ass cracker! that is all.
p.s. nyc girls gone wild resch for MCM marathon weekend. GET YER ASS UP HERE.
HA, I could have written this post(without the Burger King)…… I call it resting………..
Sounds like we both had some of the same issues… you will bounce back no prob I have faith!
I've been a blog slacker this week too. Oh well, it happens.
Here's hoping you get that swim in!
I have no doubt you will more than make up for your slackerness in the next 4-8 weeks. I'm watching you Focker (as i point fingers to eyes and back at you)!!
It must be something in the air! I've had lots of nights off this week with only 1 run and 1 bike. As much as I hate to admit it to myself….when the body wants rest, it will stop at nothing to get it! But like you said, next week is a new week!
Slacker binges every now and then are A-OK. I know you'll be back at it in no time!
I am eyeing the Miami Marathon too! I lived there for 10 years. I would love to go back. I was torn betw the beach half and the miami half but now that I am injured I may start up again on my marathon quest. Resetting is cool. You need that to light your fire. You'll start fresh tomorrow. Run/bike/swim is a lot! bike/swim is a lot for me right now! Happy Training! And don't eat that crap! ; )
