What Was Planned vs What Happened
Monday 02/11/19: 2 mile run | 2 mile run + stretching
I decided to do a few hill repeats on this run, since I’ve been doing nothing but flat treadmill runs for months. It was a new challenge, and felt great.
Tuesday 02/12/19: Yoga | Yoga
Penelope came over and we did Yoga With Adriene’s videos for Hips and Lower Back and Neck, Shoulders, and Upper Back. It was a lovely full-body stretch.
Wednesday 02/13/19: 1.5 mile run | 1.5 mile run + hip strength + stretching
I wasn’t feeling this run AT ALL, but I got it done.
Thursday 02/14/19: Strength | Rest
I was feeling super worn out and like I might be coming down with something, so I rested.
Friday 02/15/19: 2 mile run | Rest
I still wasn’t feeling it, so I rested again.
Saturday 02/16/19: 2.5 mile run | Rest
Yup, more of the same.
Sunday 02/17/19: Rest | Rest
Nailed it, haha!
Weekly Mileage: 3.5 miles
Total 2019 Mileage: 64
As you can see, this wasn’t a great week for working out, but I have been feeling so incredibly worn down, I know I needed the rest. Between being a new mom, rehearsals for my show, and trying to get back to regular exercise, I think I’ve been overdoing it a bit lately. While I don’t regret being in this show, I definitely think it was the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back.
Luckily, the show is this coming Sunday, and after that I can just focus on momming and exercise for a while. I don’t think I’ll be auditioning for another show any time soon. The travel and the staying up late are just too much right now. I need to focus on taking care of myself first; there will be plenty of opportunities to do theatre when I’m not so freaking tired.
When is the last time you took a nice long break from working out?

It seems like I’m on a 2 week running break. Though I’m doing other things, I’m just not motivated to run! I think I need to start planning out my weeks again!
Sometimes a break is just what you need to get rested and find your motivation again!
It’s been a few years since I’ve taken a few months off. I’ve found it’s easier to keep a base level of fitness, ,even a really low one, than starting all over again.
I agree, but I’ve taken a lot of longer breaks over the years due to pure laziness 😂
unfortunately I take a break when injured. Sad but true.Then again, you do what you need to do. Next week will be better, I’m sure of it.
I hope all your rest and ART get you back out on the roads soon!
You and me both.
