This past week was a bit of an off week for me, but I’m not also not officially training anything right now. I’ve been struggling with working out after work, now that is practically dark when I get home. Plus this past week I was working 10+ hour days each day. It usually takes me a few weeks to adjust to the earlier sunset. By mid-November I’ll be following a loose training plan to do some base training. That will get me back into a rhythm, which should help!
Tuesday- 10 minute core work
Thursday- 10 minute core work
Friday- 4 mile run with Kim at our usual spot! Kim recently returned to running after baby #2 and I’m so glad to be getting back out there with her. It was a perfect day for running, too!
Saturday- Cross training: Jillian Michaels ‘No More Trouble Zones’ workout DVD and 10 minute core work. I’m still sore and probably will be through most of this week.
I also gave the dogs baths (which is a workout for my back) in the afternoon and then handed out candy to the beggars!
Sunday- Rest. I drove nearly 8 hours to and from West Virginia to celebrate my Nana’s 90th birthday with her and our family. I had considered doing a short run or workout when I got home, but I was pretty sleepy so I decided to just take another rest day and regroup this week.
My goals this week are to run more and get in some quality cross training workouts. No more than two complete rest days!
Do you struggle with your workout routine with the limited daylight hours? How do you deal with that?
