… I got to the gym just in time yesterday. The girl on the good treadmill was finishing up when I walked in at 5:15 AM. Victory!
But it’s possible that the real question in this scenario is, “what time did you get here and why are you so crazy???”
I still haven’t entered crazy zone (which I define as being up before 5:00 to go to the gym- I’m holding on to that 5:05 wakeup call for dear life).
Of course it’s not being ruled out (longer mid-week runs are heading my way), but right now I just can’t get myself to do it!
My point after all that rambling is that I got the desired treadmill without any issues. Whew! Until yesterday, Wednesdays have been just a 3-mile run and strength. But we’re getting further into training and when I created the training plan, I decided throwing 4-milers into the mix at this point would be a good idea.
Good idea? It’s much too early to tell at this point. But I did it. 4 miles at 8:32 pace.
And just like Monday, because I refuse to get up any earlier, I waited until after work to fit in The Shred as my strength training.
Ok- scratch that. I skipped out on hanging out with Jillian Michaels last night. As luck would have it, I was just wiped.
However, attempts to make up for it were made through push ups and a few free weight exercises. Possibly during commercial breaks. Take it or leave it…
As luck would have it, I was able to enjoy the rest of my spicy peanut sauce pasta over lunch yesterday.A lovely lunch was had by finding a window seat and pretending I’m getting an adequate amount of vitamin D while reading up on Chicago’s aging population. I sure know how to have one hell of an exciting lunch…
Oh sunshine. I just wish I could actually feel you again.
Yet another reason I’m counting down days until my Vegas vacation…
And yes, I do read Crain’s (Chicago Business) along with my favorite Chelsea Handler books. It’s important to be well-rounded like that.
By the way, thanks for all the comments on yesterday’s post. Madeline and Leah both commented on how they think their whole existence is an “oops” moment. I laughed out loud. Then realized I qualify for that classification, too.
As luck would have it, today is my rest day. Judging from my lack of energy to finish up the strength training last night, it’s safe to say I might need it.
Enjoy the day, everyone- I’ll be lounging at home tonight watching my Thursday night lineup. Ahhhh….
