A Friday Free for All for Me

Note: I am not a regular blogger/updater. I just don't have the time and patience to be as dedicated to blogs as some people. I really admire women who are able to devote a great deal of time and energy to this online community. I just don't have it in me at this point in the game, so I'll be around to update when I see fit.

Today was a free for all. I got up earlier than I would have liked and it took me a while to get in the swing of things. I made Goose an amazing veggie and ground turkey omelet this morning though.

I did some serious Yoga and my legs were burning from it. Probably because yesterday was a heavy leg day in the gym
[Squats: 3x8, 70lbs Walking Lunges: 3x15, 25lb dbs
Split Leg Good Mornings: 3x8, 55lbs Kickbacks: 2x10eachleg, 20lb db]

Needless to say, it didn't take much for my legs to burn.

Here comes the fail part and the serious free for all: I didn't do my speedwork today. I just didn't make it out there. My LAME excuses are as follows; it was raining, my legs were hella sore, I did other things.

The point is, I didn't get to it. I'm not super stressed about it and I'm not beating myself up. However, I am thinking about how to avoid this in the future.

So, my new and very scary plan of attack...maybe, possibly....

I'm going to attempt morning runs.

Now, by morning we're talking 9 or 10. Lets face it, I am NOT a morning person. I work from 3-7, my grad school classes are at night. I just, get up later and stay up later than the average jane. But, I'm also very busy and my day quickly gets away from me.

Sunday will be our first morning run. My sites are all dialed in on my 5.5route beginning at 9am. Please wish me luck and keep your fingers crossed. I might love it, who knows?!

We have a saying in the Goose household though; "You don't know unless you go"
