Since I began this training plan, I've missed 4 workouts. That's not bad for 7 weeks. Well, except that 3 of those workouts were in the last week.
What happened? Last week we were in Lake Tahoe on Sunday which is the day I normally map out my training sessions on my weekly calendar. I traveled directly from Tahoe to work at my LA office on Monday and Tuesday. That meant I never got around to scheduling my training sessions until Wednesday.
Considering that I worked for Day-Timers and have read every time management book on the planet, I sure suck at managing my calendar. My work requires that I spend a lot of time in meetings. If I don't block out time then every morning, lunch and evening will be filled by an appointment. If I want to have 2 consecutive hours available to train I need to protect that time. Duh. This isn't quantum mechanics.
Lesson learned. Training happens when schedule it. It doesn't miraculously fit into may day. As much as I hate schedules, I need to plan.
