Even though I decided not to beat myself up over this lack of progress, I still remain a little disappointed that I have lost one complete week of training. While I did have a lot going on , there were still opportunities to get in some workouts. In order to avoid repeating the same scenario and getting the same feelings of disappointment in the future, I should come up with a better gameplan as far as making sure that my workout schedule meshes well with the other things that I need to do. A good example is... Saturday, Sunday, and Monday... my dad did not need my help until about 9am. I could have gotten up a little earlier and had a good run on any one of these days, but I chose to sleep in an extra hour.
It is time to get back into gear. The 10K is far away... so far that I can not see it. So, I am going to sign up for a 3M or a 5K in July so that I have something in the near future that I can see. It should motivate me to get myself on track, in theory. I will sign up for the next race before my next post. I will let you know which one it is then. Since my stomach is still a little off, I am not going to run today. Instead I will walk for about a mile or so. And then I will pick up where I left off tomorrow...
Gameplan for the next three days:
- Friday = Upper-body workout
- Saturday = One mile run at 8:00 pace
- Sunday = Two mile run at 9:00 pace
