The Plan


Workout – “Better than Nothing workout” Pretty self explanatory.  email me if you need an explanation.  but here’s a hint – it was better than doing nothing.   OUTSIDE run (yay for no treadmill today!), hilly,  5 miles – 34 min. 

The plan is to make a plan.  for training.  Like I’ve said before, this is new territory for me.  not so much a planner.  great procrastinator.  in all things I do.  basically my life revolves around my kids.  and my husband.  and then my running, and me.  I gave up 99% of my freedom (not in a bad way.  I don’t think;)) when I had my first child.  then came 2, then came 3.  So I’m probably at 99.9% freedom-less by now.  I don’t sleep when I want to sleep.  I don’t eat when I want to eat.  I don’t go to the bathroom by myself. I rarely take a peaceful shower without a child breaking into the bathroom, or jumping in the shower with me.  Naturally, I don’t always get the run/workouts in when and how I want to get them in.  Then add the hubs.  He wants to run too.  The nerve.  really.    

The best way to fix this, in my mind, is to actually make a plan for once.  novel ideas.  I might have an allergic reaction to this at first, but I think my body and mind will get used to it if I can stick with it.  So that instead of doing this in the evening,

one for each hand. super healthy snack choice.

I will be doing a little bit more of this

not making weird hand signals. running.

So that’s what I am going to try to do this week.  Make the plan.  I will work on sticking to it sometime in the future.  If there is to be a plan, procrastination will surely find it’s way in there somehow.  maybe I should make a plan to not procrastinate.  that’s way to much planning going on.  lets stick with training plan.  more effective.  I’ll let you know what I come up with.  It’s gonna be great.  Really great:)

And then I found this little guy on my back….I can’t seem to get him off.  He won’t leave me alone.  He must really like me or something.  maybe because I gave him a little thing called LIFE. 

he's a little green goblin. watch out. he'll wake you up at 4:45 and eat you alive. that super-sized forehead will eat you alive too.

Any good plans for the week??

I am a 29 year old stay at home, hardworking mom to my three little loves! My oldest little darling is 5, little sis is 4 and baby brother is almost 2. I have been married to my Mr. Wonderful for almost 7 years (ahhh!). My faith and my family is my rock, and I have a newfound LOVE for running. Maybe it's more of a necessity at this point - to maintain household peace and my own sanity, but whatever it is, it's working for me and I'm loving the racing. The vegan world has been calling my name, so I am testing out those waters as well! That's a tough one with three little picky eaters at home, but I am having fun coming up with new recipes and trying out new things. Follow along as I chronicle this crazy running life, and ALL the craziness that goes with it!

  1. Loving your blog!! Looking forward to future posts.:). As for my plans for the week, hoping to be cooked for, get two Pilates classes in and start a 5k training program (baby steps). I’m turning 34 this week and am hoping I can start off my 35th year with a week that goes accordingly! Wish me luck.:)

    • Thanks, Alethia! I’m finding it’s a great little creative outlet and great way to track my training. Cooked for??? Who’s doing the cooking? I keep talking about doing pilates. I do a lot of talking and not a lot of doing;) And I know that I knew, but totally forgot it’s your bday – HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! celebrate all week:) 5k is a great place to start.
