After all that rah rah talk about getting started on my journey to aerobic fitness, I suffered a setback over the weekend and couldn’t get out to do my long runs. Nothing physical – just some scheduling conflicts. Yeah. Unfortunately life has a way of getting in the way sometimes.
This week has also had it share of schedule challenges. Here was my planned schedule:
- Monday: Rest
- Tuesday: 4 easy
- Wednesday: 4 easy
- Thursday: 4 easy
- Friday: Rest
- Saturday: 10 trail
- Sunday 8 trail
- Total: 30 miles
But, to top it off, my job search had me running around Wednesday, and I will be doing so today (Thursday) as well, so those two runs aren’t happening. To top it off now, the weatherman* is forecasting rain Friday night and Saturday, which means my beloved trails will be closed this weekend. If that’s the case, I may end up breaking out the rowing machine. After all, a man has to eat!
* I use the term “weatherman” loosely. There are several female weatherpersons on TV in L.A. A couple appear to be keeping plastic surgeons in business…
