You know how they say, "If you want something done, give it to a busy person?" Yeah. Well, that totally applies in my case. Seems I need 100,000 things to do in a day, and if I have them, I make a list and check check check all day long until I get it all done. Mama might be tired, but I'm efficient and I get 'er done.
Then comes a rest week when I have like 10 extra hours on my hands... but it seems like WAY more than that and I suppose it is when you factor in time spent getting ready to train and time spent recovering from training... blah blah blah... my point is, I can be the Queen At Wasting Time sometimes. Interestingly, I don't think I even posted anything on FB today? Rest assured though, if you did, I read it.
I guess I did get a decent amount of work done today. But I don't know. It's like I'm not complete if I only did one short easy workout. I'm like a drug addict in rehab on rest weeks. Restless and just not satisfied.
In good news, I'm through the first two days of it already and I still have all my hair. And tomorrow I have a swim test that should seriously kick my ass so it's all good. Then I have a HR run test on Friday so while that will not be hard, I'm expecting to see some nice improvements. That is, if I can avoid stuffing my face with food this week. What is it about rest weeks that makes us want to EAT?
In other news, I solidified some awesome plans for next weekend that I'll tell you about later. Mama is excited about it though! Verymuchso. AND, I picked up another athlete to train for IMCdA and I'm quite excited about working with her. Verymuchso. Seems I have a very good crop of athletes to work with this year. Athletes who are hell bent on following instructions. Athletes who are extraordinarily dedicated... Like I'll walk 2.5 miles through snow and ice in the dark to make sure I get my swim in coach dedicated. Shoot. I'm not even sure *I* would go that far? Maybe I would if I was in the middle of the desperation induced by a rest week though.
