This week was completely chaotic. I anticipated that but was obviously ill-prepared. I am used to chaos, but this was on a whole different level. I was obviously not fully prepared for how little time would be left for things like showering, eating and sleeping…let alone getting my workouts in. I also didn’t fully understand how exhausted I would be when it was all said and done.
I know I should give myself a break.
I was extremely productive if you look at it from the standpoint that I managed to pack my old apartment and move into my new apartment on top of a full work schedule and school schedule- including having a midterm. However, if you look at my workout schedule, it was very low on the productivity scale. I am not happy about it. I know that I juggle a lot of balls in the air and sometimes these balls drop. I know that no matter if my training schedule had started 3 months ago or was starting in 3 days, this week still would have happened.
I need to give myself a break.
In the end I decided to skip my swim, nix one of the bike workouts and cut all my runs short. It wasn’t ideal and I certainly didn’t like having to do it. But sometimes life gets in the way. All I can do is look forward to more productive weeks in the future and keep a positive outlook. I know not every week will be great and I know they won’t always be this bad.
I have to give myself a break.
