Happy Friday! My days have all been mixed up this week – starting work on Wednesday makes today actually feel like Wednesday…
I’m starting to realize how much my days have been blurring together: work, coaching, commuting, dinner and sleeping. I’ve accepted the fact that I’m fully immersed in the “tired as all hell” mode during the Whole30, as in, I could barely keep my eyes open during dinner and I was in bed by 9:15 p.m.
This morning was pretty intense waking up – my whole body ached and I had a massive headache. Bleehh. Fridaaaaay. Sugar hangover. Can you tell I’m looking forward to snapping out of this?
What’s really keeping me going are my scheduled workouts – I decided that I need to map out my activities during the month of January to simply keep my mind occupied (and not daydream about chocolate).
I’ll admit, this is a pretty aggressive schedule, but without planning ahead I know that I’ll simply skip workouts hear and there – plus there’s something magical about crossing off days in the calendar – especially when there’s goals involved.
Of note, I’ve realized I need to mix in more endurance and mobility workouts into my schedule. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some WODs, but I want to kick start the year with new habits (and hopefully regain my love of running)…Balance is the theme of 2013. Work hard, play hard – whatever you want to call it: take full advantage of life. It’s short.
Today’s WOD is going to be another fast moving chuck of time:
- EMOM for 15 min
- 10 deadlifts @ 95#
- 10 push-ups
Let’s be real – I don’t think I can manage 150 “big girl” push-ups in 15 minutes, but I’ll do my best to hang in there and drop to knees when needed. Surprisingly, I’m looking forward to those deadlifts because I need to seriously get the cobwebs out…
Do you plan out your workouts? What’s your success rate when you do? Do you skip workouts when you’re sore?
I leave you with a snappy little mash-up from Madeon. Have a great weekend, everyone!
