Getting Back in the Groove After a Rough Week


Last week was rough. I only worked out twice and didn’t run at all. I had to work late a few times, the weather was bad, not feeling motivated, just all kinds of excuses. And to be completely honest, that all they were, excuses. What I needed to get back to it this…

This is becoming my decision-making process.

Yesterday I had a good workout. A lot of new exercises to learn. I love variety. Protein with BCAAs afterward kept me feeling good. Another one before bed helped my legs, especially my quads, feel a lot less tired when I wake up.

I decided to up my short run mileage to 4 which is what I was going to be at this week anyway.

28 May 13 Run

The pace was where I was shooting for but it was too easy. I will try a little faster on the next one. I was a nice cool day and very enjoyable.

This might be the last cool day for a while. It is supposed to be close to 90 on my next run day, which is hot for here and much hotter than it’s been since last year. I’ll definitely be bringing water.
