Training "Sweet spot" =D

Monday, February 04, 2013

So I finally found my training "sweet spot" and I'm super excited about it!! emoticon
I wanted to get up early this morning and go out for a walk/jog, but of course I didnt. I am not a morning person I feel like when I try to get in a workout in the morning I'm just setting myself up to fail. But I didnt want to just say "too bad so sad" I still wanted to get my walk in. So... I went home during lunch, changed really quickly, and off I went to the park to walk. I ended up doing 2 miles in 30 minutes and I still had time to go home, shower, grab my salad, and get back to the office. I feel amazing!! I feel refreshed, happy, excited, motivated! It feels really good. So I'm going to stick to doing my training during my lunch hour.

I am so close to actually allowing myself to consider myself a "runner" I dont believe I have earned the title just yet, but I am so close to doing it. So I want to stick to this training and since its during my lunch break I dont have the excuse of missing my run because I have to go school or because I have some family event in the evening or unexpected company or a late dinner or anything! No excuses!!!! Noon is now my official training time!!! Woohooo!!

To make the process easier, I'm going to bring my running clothes with me to work and change here before lunch that way I can head straight to the park (or whereever I feel like running) and not have to waste time going home first. I am soooo excited about this new session in my efforts to live a healthy, more active life and I know that with this incorporation I am going to be able to reach my 30lb weigh loss in no time!!! and hopefully well before I actually turn 30.

    Woohoo! Yes, in a perfect world knocking your workout out in the morning is ideal. I have NEVER found that to work for me. I typically like either late afternoon or after dinner. I am actually awake and have calories in me to burn. :) Enjoy your run tomorrow! :)

    Do you live close enough to run home for lunch and back again?
