Another big week is in the books. This upcoming week will be quite a challenge as I am traveling most of the week, but I have already done my recon and found the local gym for spin classes and a 25 yard pool. Yes, I know, I am OCD.
I do have a confession to make though, these long Saturday workouts are starting to getting old. I started my bike ride in the dark (my hubby added a headlight and tailight) on Saturday and still had to cut my run short to make it to Andrew's first soccer game on time -- and it was at 1:00 p.m.!
All of the time in the saddle is paying off though as I was not even a touch sore from my nearly 6 hour workout. I did ride a bit slower than normal as I was riding with someone who rides a bit slower than me, but I appreciated the company and didn't mind saving my legs.
I have done 2 centuries in training that were not on the schedule, so I just added the time to the bike hours those weeks. This week, I feel guilty for cutting my brick run short to make it to Andrew's soccer game on time. If the schedule is so important, then why can I add to the workouts but not subtract a bit when I need to? I know it is not a big deal because I have been so consistent, but I still feel guilty. The good news is that I haven't lost sight of my priorities ...
