“A wise man adapts himself to circumstances as water shapes itself to the vessel that contains it.”

Spartan Shape-Up, Day 47:

Oops. Yeah. No excuses, but the day just got away from me today. It was supposed to be Lifting Day, but somehow one thing led to another, and suddenly it's 9:30pm, and it didn't happen. Damn. I would lift now, but then I'll never sleep, and I have enough issues with that already!

However. This is just a learning opportunity. First lesson:
a) I should've prioritized a little bit better today. Going forward, planning a set time for a workout on a busy day is imperative.
b) Sometimes, things are going to happen. No need to stress. Just going to figure out how to squeeze in that workout tomorrow.

Plan for tomorrow. Tomorrow is officially Run Day. I need to begin my run a little bit earlier - I'm trying to get a little more mileage out of my current route. Literally. The last run was only 2.6mi. I'm thinking if I start running a bit earlier, I'll maybe stretch it to 3 mi. Definitely need to scout some more routes. Partially because in order to stretch out this route, I'm going to be running uphill for the first good portion of my workout. LOL. Awesome.

Then, when I get back from the run, I'm thinking I'll bang out set of complexes, so I get the lifting in. Probably I'll do one of the sets that aren't heavy on Squats, etc. as my legs will probably be done, but regardless, I'll get some weights in. I'm oddly interested to try to do Renegade Rows. I'm not sure I have the strength to execute very many of them, but you have to start somewhere! I'm aiming to do 3 good pushups (they're way harder with your elbows in like you need to be do to the rows), with the corresponding rows. SO. That's 6 rows, 3 pushups. I can do that.

So. Slight off-track today, but no-need to derail the whole train! Back to gettin' after it tomorrow!
