As for the Idiot Mistake referenced in the title, you'll have to read on to see my blunder.
Holiday lights in Nichols Hills as seen on bike commute
Morning Swim: (was late to pool, only got 1000 in; 25:00)
Lunch Run (4.5 mi; 37:28; 7:30 min/mi)
Evening Bike (so dark and a little rainy. went slow out of self-preservation. 21 mi; 1:15; 16.7mph )
Bike Commute (17.3 mi; 1:07; 15.4 mph)
Soccer game (50 min)
Evening Run (7 mi; 1:01; 8:45 min/mi)
Lunch swim (36:00; 2000 yds)
Evening Treadmill Run (4 mi; 33:00; 8:14 min/mi)
Easy morning Run (8 mi; 1:10; 8:40 min/mi)
Well, I thought I was going to run in a 10k race today, but it turns out the race was on Saturday. What an idiot. Somewhere in my weekly planning, I thought the race was on Sunday. I never checked it for sure, and on Sunday morning, I spent a few minutes driving around looking for the start line. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Granted, I'm the same guy who once showed up to the airport a day late for a flight.
Decided to salvage an epic fail with a quick trail run.
Morning trail run: (37:38; 3.74 mi; 9:59 min/mi [I went slow, but I didn't realize that slow]
Swim (two workouts; 3000 yds; 1h)
Bike (two workouts; 38 mi; 2h 22 min)
Run (five workouts; 27.25 mi; 4h)
Total (eleven workouts; 7h 22 min + other workouts)
Thoughts: Having the soccer game in the middle of the week screwed the my weekly plan up in two respects. (1) my sleep pattern was off and (2) I was sore. Real sore. This week, I'll focus on getting morning workouts in.
Even bigger display of holiday lights in Nichols Hills (although blurry)
