Two Short Weeks & Training Schedule

The next two weeks are going to be short with having Friday and Monday off for Easter, but that doesn't mean that it's going to be smooth sailing around here.

Just for my sanity, I need to do a run-down of what's going on this week:
  • Today I have an early morning assessment results meeting, a mid-morning bi-weekly building check-in meeting, a follow-up intervention meeting after school and then my ever-so-needed hair cut and color (I may post before and after pics later).
  • Tuesday morning I have swim practice, my building rep meeting at the end of the school day, and then my CEC class until 730pm
  • Wednesday is somewhat normal (I may see the end in sight)
  • Thursday evening is the committee meeting for the Fargo Youth Run (part of the Fargo marathon). It's going to be a whirlwind
  • Friday - OFF. breathe.

I thought I would warn y'all - I may be posting on a consistent basis over the next couple of weeks, but my comments may be quite sporadic. I apologize ahead of time!

Now, let's take a look back on this past week's training. In black is what I wanted to accomplish, in red is what I did do:

3 runs with one 5-6 miler - 3 runs but not a 5-6 miler (3.1 mi, 3.25 mi, 4.65 mi)
2 bikes (one short and one long) - NADA
2 swims -
2 swims (4000 Yds total)
1 bodypump class - 1 class
1 hour of yoga - NADA
1 hour of pilates - NADA

But, I did get in a couple good days of my TriPower and tons of stretching. I am constantly struggling to balance everything. It seems like one week things will be all good and the next week something will suffer whether it's biking, running, or swimming. grrr! This week will be better!

Here's the plan for week 9:
3 runs with one 5-6 miler
1 bike
2 swims
1 bodypump
3-4 TriPower routines
1 hour of yoga

Not too different from last week but we'll see how things go!

Have a great week, y'all!

You do have yourself a full plate. I hope you get all your training in this week. :-)

I sometimes find we pay for those shorter work weeks by doubling up on the work days that do exist. Your upcoming weeks seem to follow that pattern. Good luck with that!

Looks like a good workout plan :)
I know what you mean about busy weeks lately. I took Friday off but we don't get any time off for Easter :( Instead of complaining about it this year I decided to just take the day off haha
