A friend of mine who works at the Combined Federal Campaign in South Puget Sound (shout out to Melanie and Maxwell the Pig!) showed me this blog post when I first told her in February that I was considering starting a Masters program. I highly recommend reading it, even if you're not considering a Masters program. It's freakin' hilarious.
I'd say that I definitely deserve a Delusional Masters Barbie (TM). I'm working full time (honestly, I'm working two jobs right now until I hire my assistant), I'm taking a complete MBA class schedule, and I've signed up for another half marathon in the end of November, which means that my training for that will start in early September. Can I do all of that and still maintain a social life? Probably not. But that's the way I work and I thrive on packed schedules.
My schedule today was packed to the gills. I started and ended my day with big meetings, announced my fundraising goal to my campaign cabinet so we could set our complete goal, and started finalizing the charity catalog for my upcoming campaign. Busy day! And, since I knew that I wouldn't have time to workout tonight between work and class, I worked out this morning! Seriously, who is this person?? I rarely workout early in the morning. I didn't think I'd be good at it, and I'm always distracted and worried during a morning workout that I won't have enough time to get everything done and be at work on time.
I think that this morning I proved myself wrong. Here's how I scheduled it out last night so I'd be ready and (relatively) worry-free this morning:
Here's my most common treadmill interval workout (which I did this morning):
Here is the circuit workout I did:
One of my main concerns, aside from the time crunch, was that I would end up extremely tired or dehydrated after the workout since I didn't have much time to eat and digest before I began my cardio. How'd I solve this problem? I guzzled a lot of water last night and I did a mini carbo-load: crackers, hummus and red wine. I ate this at about 8:30 or 9:00, before heading to bed at 10:00. I'd say that it worked out pretty well! Who doesn't like a good excuse to drink wine? In fact, I had my little carb snack outside on my balcony in the beautiful August air with all of my festive lights on :)
