My Biceps Don’t Know It’s Rest Day: Upper Body + Abs Circuit

Y’all. I’m pretty sure I’m running on auto-pilot today. I got a grand total of four hours of sleep last night. It was fun times. I did, however, have the time and energy to work out tonight. So that’s a huge win, right? It was technically a rest day on my half marathon training plan, but I really don’t want to give up strength training, so I’m sneaking it in when I can. This workout was actually really, really tough for me. I just never know when I’m going to get a chance to do anything, so I try to torture myself every possible opportunity. Kidding. I’m not going to strength train on every single “Rest/Cross Train” day. Just when I feel like it.

Of course I made a themed picture of my workout. I mean, who doesn’t do that? ;) Anyway, now I’m pretty much a zombie, so I’ve got to crash immediately. If none of this post makes sense, if I misspelled everything on that image, and if somehow this doesn’t actually get posted… well, you know why.

PS: Tomorrow I’ll be at work from 7 to 7 for report card conferences. I also somehow have to find time to run a 5 mile tempo run. Should be pretty exciting. I’ll run in the morning if Maddux doesn’t stay up all night again. If that happens, I’ll try to run tomorrow night. Eek. That’s some spooky stuff, for real. I’ve got the coffee on deck either way, so it’s all good.

PPS: I know I complain about dumb things when other people have way bigger problems. I just really like sleep. I can’t help it. I know I’m lucky that finding the energy to work out is my biggest problem in life right now. Very lucky. Alright, now I really have to go force myself into a light coma. Yes, I realize it’s 8:15 pm. No shame.

      Good to know! I always feel weird hitting “post”… like who actually wants to read my thoughts written down? haha


  1. […] night, Maddux slept from 8 pm to 5 am. I needed that straight stretch of sleep so badly I would have paid for it. Unfortunately, toddlers aren’t really into money or bartering just […]
