I couldn’t believe it when I looked at the 6-month workout schedule. My training was already behind!
“Egads,” I told myself.
Exactly how far behind was I? By week 2 in the 6 month training schedule, I’m supposed to be doing 77 minute sessions. Umm…I’m not exactly slacking but I’m not at that many minutes per day.
As it was running day, I was off. But not before wolfing down a #2 at In-and-Out Burger with a chocolate/vanilla milkshake. I was hoping to test out my guts to see how they handled a heavy meal and then a decent run. Good thing my body didn’t disappoint me! The entire run went smoothly and I made it to the 101 at Tamarack State Beach and back home in 78 minutes.
This means tomorrow will be a tire tow session of at least 77 minutes. I need to investigate if this schedule is recommended as an average over a week. The idea is to do shorter workouts during the week and then put in a much longer weekend to balance it out.
Really, that won’t work. It’s not like that’s how Antarctica is going to be. That’s how the teams this past season suffered, trying to put in crazy distances at the end. They made it but not without misery.
Falling behind here means ultimate failure later on when it really counts. I’ve got to download and install the Weight Watchers app to check my calorie intake against my workout schedule. For as much as I’m eating and still being hungry, I have no idea how I’m going to gain weight.
Butter and bacon – here I come!
