I have still been skating and cycling, but having major problems finding any time to fit in weights.
Sunday: 3 hr derby practice
Monday: cycle commute
Tuesday: 2 hr derby practice
Thursday: 1.5 hour derby practice
Friday: cycle commute
Got 2 hr practice tomorrow and 3 hr on Sunday.
I have derby practice 3 times a week: Tues, Thurs, Sun. Plus Sat once or twice a month. I can't lift weights on the same day as practice as it would be too much and I also generally don't have time (e.g., on the weeknights, I get home from practice between 11:00 and 11:45).
I don't mind lifting weights on the same day as commuting on my bike. So that means I potentially have Mon, Wed, Fri, and some Sat for weights. However, my partner and I lift together and both have to be there so we can spot each other. And my partner works evenings on Wed, so that's out. That leaves Mon, Fri, and some Saturdays. Can't do Fri and Sat, so my free Sat basically would be good for weeks on which I can't do Fri for some reason. So that's 2 weights sessions per week max.
But with only two evenings per week free, generally, if I am ever to do anything else in my life other than work or derby, it will fall on Mon or Fri or Sat. For example, we are very soon going to start a six-week meditation course on Mon evenings. So then we are down to just Fridays.
That leaves us in a situation where it's really hard to be consistent and we sometimes go weeks without having an opportunity to lift. It's really frustrating.
OK, so that was just a little vent! I'm feeling a wee bit tired and maybe like I am getting a bit sick. Probably mostly tired, though...
