Training Goals 10/26 – 11/1

I don’t have any.

I know – shocker! BUT – I am taking the rest of the month off – and honestly, most of November, too. And by off, I mean off of posting my training goals!

I am starting to feel bad having to write FAIL! after all my goals, and since last week, I did very little, I would have to write FAIL! after five of the seven days (I totally hit my rest day).

I am not recovering as quickly as I’d hoped from the marathon + the sick, and decided to just take it easy. That is not to say that I will not be exercising, I am just going to run when I feel like running and not run when I don’t. I am getting to the point, though, where I’m wondering if I feel like crap because I’m not exercising or if I’m not exercising because I feel like crap!

Some things I am willing to share for this upcoming week.

I totally plan to run at least twice. But just little runs.

I think I might go to yoga tonight at my new gym. Maybe.

I have a strength assessment tomorrow night at my new gym.

I am going to stick with my plan to ride my bike to work once a week throughout the winter. I pick that day based on the weather of course. As of now, I am planning on Wednesday!

This weekend is my third wedding anniversary. The architect & I will be taking a one night vacay to a B&B (the same B&B where we spent our honeymoon) and then come home for a romantic night of delicious dinner (thanks to the best menu consultant in the blogosphere – full menu to follow AFTER the festivities) and trick-or-treaters.

This week also marks the start of class #4 in my grad school adventure (still keeping those 4.0 dreams alive), so I imagine that will take up some time, as well!

So – to recap: I am going to do what seems best to me. I have a plan, I am just not sharing it with you. Not because I don’t love you, but because I love me!

And – a shout-out to blogless Christine for finishing her first marathon this weekend! Way to go Christine!

And – just to keep you coming back – this week we will have a product review (spoiler – it is delicious), maybe some new shoe porn, a 2009 garden wrap-up, a couple of brew reviews, and something else so super awesome that it was the whole reason I started this paragraph. And now that I decided to save the best for last, I can no longer remember this super awesome blog topic. But I will. Probably. And you will want to know what it is!

So come back!

Please.

  2. Happy anniversary.

    Hope you’re feeling back to normal soon!

  3. It’s all good girl. Do what’s best for you. If you need more time take it! Your body knows what it needs right now.

    Happy Anniversary!!

  4. Thank you Amy! I had the time of my life and realized that it really didn’t matter how long it took. That really surprised me because I’m so dang competitive.

    I wore my hippo/unicorn shirt to the expo and got several comments on it. I’ll have to send you a picture. 🙂

  5. As much as it sucks, sometimes you just have to listen to your body and slow down…

    Your B&B trip sounds awesome! Have fun!

  6. Happy Anniversary!
