Um, yeah....about that....
Monday - planned: 2000 swim + 40 min run
actual: Nada, zip, zilch - on the couch sick as a dog
Tuesday - planned: 30 min run + 60 min bike
actual: 0 run + 60 min bike
Wednesday - planned: 1500 swim
actual: 2250 swim (feeling motivated!)
Thursday - planned: 60 min long run
actual: 60 min bike (massive right calf cramp during Wed's swim - did NOT want to run)
Friday - planned: 1450 swim + 45 min bike
actual: nothing whatsoever - day was spent trying to make our way to and from work through the massive NW storm. Thank the lawd for mass transit!
Saturday - planned: off
actual: 60 min run (too much cabin fever so 6 miles on the dreadmill it was - then a few bottles of bud as a treat for getting my butt out in the cold and doing something at least)
Sunday - planned: 90 min bike
actual: 2 mile trek through the ICE to Target for rations!!!
|Convenient path (though totally iced over) to Target....life saver!|
|And inch of this nasty stuff sitting right on top of our 7" of beautiful, powdery snow...stupid ice.|
|Darn stuff encapsulated everything....even the rocks!|
Needless to say, my training last week was sabotaged by all the nasty weather we got. Now, 7" of snow for most of you is but a drop in the bucket. And during my 5 years living in Omaha, NE I would agree with you. Portland however, is not at all prepared for this kind of weather so basically the city shut down for 3 days. As a matter of fact I am writing today's (yesterday's) post from home because the 1/2 of ice that blanketed our 7" of snow has yet to melt and our local neighborhood roads are a mess.
This week is a new week though - I do have a 40 min run and swim scheduled for today, but of course the pool is closed, so no water time for me. **update** Never got around to running either....oh bother.
Where, oh where has my motivation gone.......oh where, oh where can it be?
Suck it up, buttercup - 3 weeks of HIM training down, only 17 more to go!! Crap on a cracker, I better get moving!
Anyone else experience weather related training breakdowns?
How do you move past it?!
