I've been working out a lot lately. Today was my sixth workout n the last 8 days; that's pretty much the frequency I want to exercise -- and think I should exercise. But I rarely exercise that often. Also, my last few workouts have been more intense and longer than usual. Which is great! But I'm worried I'm going to burn out.
Or maybe I'm already starting to. I went for a run today, and I was just not feeling it. I wanted to do an intense, 30-minute, interval run, but instead, I did a 20 minute run/walk thing. It could be because I didn't eat anything before the workout or because my body is tired from the last week of intense workouts, but I just couldn't get into it! That's a terrible excuse, right? It shouldn't matter -- I should have done it anyway.
At least I got out for the run. Next time I think there's a chance I don't feel motivated during the run (which I saw coming, because it was hard to get my butt out the door to begin with), I should plan out the run, in terms of directions, intervals, length, etc, instead of just going with the vague idea of a tough run.
I guess I should be proud of my exercise in the last week -- I've probably done 3 intense gym circuits, 2 light gym circuits, and 1 light run. Much more than usual for me. Now to get my eating habits to that level...
