Every now and so often I teach project management intro sessions for Multimedia and Web Development at UBC Continuing Studies. Currently I am in such a gig that runs over 4 Monday evenings from 6:30 until 9:30. Of course that means that I am not home until 10-ish and best case scenario am ready to sleep some time after 11.
Yesterday that was exactly the case. I also figured since this is a recovery week I take the car to the pool and don't have to put much gear together in the evening -- don't need much and what I need I can grab in the morning.
The thing with teaching for me is that I cannot do that sitting down. So I am standing and pacing for the three hours. And with Sunday's surprise tempo in the legs still, I was really feeling it. Especially when I woke up shortly after midnight! Oh brother! My legs were killing me. Like I just ran a 10k PB.
At that time I think I started already flirting with the idea to bail on swimming... In any case, when the alarm went off at 4:45 AM and I went to the washroom, it was pretty much decided that I'd go straight back to bed. And that's what I did.
But now I do feel somewhat guilty! I know Macca says that guilt is the triathlete's worst enemy (paraphrasing here) but I can milk that only so much and I already missed Saturday's swim practice without feeling too guilty.
Anyway, I may go for an hour after strength training tomorrow and before work. Or I may go Friday morning with the Dolphins or both.
So, off now to The Right Shoe for our Tuesday run. Today is fartlek on the program I reckon.
"I can milk that only so much and I already missed Saturday's swim practice without feeling too guilty." That's bad. Not having that guilt means losing the excitement to train.ReplyDelete
