… 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….
