Not Even A Week

Well, I’m not even a week into my half marathon training plan, and I’ve already switched it up. I was supposed to run four miles tonight, but I took a class instead. I’ll run tomorrow on what was supposed to be a cross-training day. Hopefully. I am the worst.

Back to that class. Tonight I went to Barre. Y’all, I have missed that class so much. No one missed me and my uncoordinated poses, though. I need a quick lesson in all things eloquence if I’m going to keep attending. You’d think I’d get the hang of it, but I swear I never do.


Tomorrow I’ll run and hopefully continue getting my life back on track. I still have plans to actually schedule a NASM test date for June, but I’m trying to pick a good time. You can definitely wait longer to choose a date, but I think having it set in stone will motivate me to read more than a paragraph of information at a time.

PS: If you’re also studying to become a CPT through NASM, please check out this legit study guide Kim made. It’s so perfect and organized, it makes me want to marry it. Actually, for anything smart and informative, head to that blog. I’m serious. Go now.

Anyway, I better go shower since I’ve yet to do that all day today. Yep. Today was a dry shampoo and headband kind of day. Days like this make me thankful those two things were invented. Did I look good? Nope. But did I at least look like I tried a little bit? Maybe. Close enough for me.


My appearance is similar to everything else I do in life: mediocre at best. Just kidding. I actually try a lot of the time, okay? I swear.

See y’all later! I have a fun birthday-themed favorites post tomorrow. Fun for me anyway. Not so sure how entertaining it will be to everyone else. Have a great night!

  1. You’ve got me beat– I didn’t exercise at ALL today nor did I run a brush through my hair! ;-) Can’t win everyday!

  2. If it makes you feel any better, I rarely EVER try to look good on work days. I never wear eye make-up (and am always told I “look tired” as a result) and my hair always goes up into a bun. I just tell myself that I have nobody to impress and would rather spend an extra 15 minutes sleeping.

  3. You’ll get it! Training has to be adjusted sometimes due to schedules. Don’t be too hard on yourself! :)

  4. Never took a Barre class. Sounds fun, but I’m not cordinated either. Way to go studying for your NASM! I have ACE and I studied my butt off, but it’s worth it!

    • You should try one if you get the chance! I swear it makes muscles hurt that I didn’t even know I had. Congrats on ACE! :)

  5. I always switch up my training plan as long as you are running and getting in the mileage needed I say go for it.

    I live for dry shampoo, it’s the greatest invention ever for people who want to look mildly acceptable in public and work out.

    Good Luck with the NASM!

  6. I do the same thing with my training plans. I never stick to the actual plan and end up swapping days for different workouts. Oops. Oh wellll. It always seems to work out in the end.

    • Exactly! I know it’s totally fine but I just feel like it’s ridiculous that I can’t even go a few days without doing it, haha. Such a rebel.

  7. My gym is going to be offering barre classes starting in May and I CAN’T WAIT!

  8. I looove me some barre. I have a dream of opening my own studio someday and calling it The Mini Barre. Mostly because that just sounds cool…but it would also be sweet to own a studio. (I think??)

    Also, you are so cool and nice to mention me and my little study guide. Let me know how many embarrassing glaring errors you find in that thing!

  9. You are too hilarious. I love that you legit don’t care sometimes, and it’s awesome. You’re going to rock your next race, even if you don’t stick to that plan 100%! I’ve never tried Barre..but feel like I would make an uncoordinated fool of myself, but maybe not, could be fun??

  10. I love how you’re not afraid to switch it up if it works for you – thats awesome. Also, I really want to try barre, but I was never graceful and/or a ballerina… so theres that. I am going to put it on a to-do list for this summer!

  11. You should definitely try it! I promise that you won’t be worse than me.
