Monday, Monday, Monday.
I had an 8am meeting, so no morning workout. Then my aunt came into town for the night. She works as a manager for a traveling health clinic and occasionally crashes with us. She was already at my house when I got home from work, so no evening workout either. Then couple that with going out for dinner and drinks at a local bar and my day was kaput. Very fun, love spending time with my aunt, but not conducive to training. C’est la vie.
Tuesday morning was tough to get up for. My body was not excited for a morning workout. Not at all.
I walked into the gym with a “just do something to sweat out the booze” mentality.
Ended up doing a 2 mile run that included an easy first mile and a high intensity sprint filled second mile that was almost a full two minutes faster. Followed that up with squats and planks for my Junebug’s challenge and that was all I had in me for the morning. But as always, I made it to spinning, so there’s that. Love me some two-a-days workouts.
This morning I redid my lactic threshold time trial for running and am finally all set on that. I’m thinking of doing my first heart rate zone run tomorrow on the indoor track.
The gym is starting to see an upswing in activity as well lately. When I first show up a bit after 6am it’s the same handful of people as always, but by the time I leave I’m noticing it’s much busier than usual. The perk of working out on a college campus that is primarily closed to the public means very few, if any, resolutioners after New Years. But that’s because it’s generally a delayed influx that is seen more when the students get back on campus from their winter break. The first few kids are starting to trickle back onto campus and I suspect next week when they’re all back that the gym will be quite busy. At least until they get busy with school, although the 6am crowd is always the first to fall away. I will have to be diligent about calling ahead for spinning to reserve a bike though.
Also, a big thank you to everyone who has been commenting, leaving me yummy meal ideas and jeans brand recommendations. Sometimes I’m really good about responding to comments and other times not so much. But I really appreciate the love.
