Why? Well other than liking the idea of sharing good news on my blog it also effects my workout schedule pretty significantly. In the past I was able to work out on my lunch breaks, which meant running with co-workers, teaching classes like Cycle Pump and Tabata Circuit and having lots of time for the rest of my life once the day as over.
Needless to say, lunchtime workouts were a huge bonus in my life.
Now, due to a heavy meeting schedule, I can't fit it in during the day, which leaves me with two options: Get up early or find the motivation (and time) to go after work.
Lately after work is winning because I deeply value the extra sleep but depending on the day (or what cool stuff is happening in the evening) I may make a few pre-work trips to the gym too.
What isn't changing is that fact that I am going to go the gym. No. I will go. And you will make me. Do we have a deal??
It also means a change to my rest day(s). Since I clearly have more time to sweat it out on the weekend now I am no longer planning to rest on Saturdays. Instead I will do biking or spinning (like today) and rest Friday when I am wiped from a long week at work and not wanting to hit the gym at the end of the day.
Change happens. I'm rolling with it.
Speaking of change, I decided to give myself a little makeover:
People are always telling me to lighten up...they meant my hair right??
I thought so too.
You know what's not changing but should? This heat wave! I hate to be the girl that complains about summer but c'mon! There's hot and then there is this. I am not down for this.
Heat? Humidity? Doesn't Mother Nature know I am training for a marathon?? Gimme a break would ya!
And to think there are people who are all "I love this weather...summer rocks!"
Some people's interests are so self-motivated. Sheeesh! *wink*
So tell me, what's the best change you've made recently? Do you hate the extreme heat or are you weird and actually enjoying it?
