Weekend Workout Plans

This weekend, I am working a track meet all day on Saturday. Because of this, I’ve had to adjust my workout plans. Typically, Saturdays are my heaviest workout days. I do a long run, and a long swim. Occasionally even a bike ride in there, though that’s not “required”. Since I’ll be working from 8am-at least 5pm, it’s not exactly feasible to do a long run AND a long swim that day unless I want to get up suuuuuper early. And I don’t :)

The good news is, I only have to work a couple hours today, so I have a little more time to do workouts in the morning than normal. Here’s what I plan to do this weekend:

This morning, I’m going to do my long run, instead of doing it on Saturday. I’m hoping it goes well, but I’m a little hesitant because I just had a hard run workout yesterday. I’ll take it slow. Also, I ran a marathon less than two weeks ago, so I only plan on going 10 miles. Immediately after I finish my run, I’ll need to hop on my bike to do my typical Friday 2 hr bike workout. Depending on how tired I am, I may cut it short. We’ll just have to see.

The reason why I have to cram in my run and bike back-to-back is because I have a chiropractor appointment scheduled for 12:45 (YAY!), so I want to get both workouts in before that. I try not to exercise the rest of the day after an adjustment because I’d be more prone to rotating back out immediately if I did. Also, I have to work from 2:30-4:30/5, so after I finish that, I don’t exactly want to do a 2 hour bike ride.

So that’s Friday.

Saturday, obviously I’m working most of the day. However, I hope to have enough energy at the end of the day to do a swim in the evening. I’m going to leave that as optional. My swimming has been going great, so if I have to “skip” one day, it won’t kill me.

This should put me back on track to do my typical Sunday long bike ride, and I’ll have gotten in all my workouts for the weekend!

Wish me luck! I’ll let you know how I do. :)

What are your plans for the weekend? Any exciting “extra curricular” activities? Any races? I’d love to hear your plans.
