No Excuses!


Wednesday, February 06, 2013

I planned to go to the gym last night after 7:30 when the crowd starts to thin. After dinner my husband and I watched Hawaii 5-O that we had recorded. I was chilly and curled up with a blanket then our lab curled up next to me. A great end to a hectic day!

That's a bad move when you plan to go to the gym! I had just posted on Facebook to another fitness challenge "no excuses Tuesday". Not even sure where that came from, just popped out.

After Hawaii 5-O, I drug myself off the couch, pulled a sweatshirt over my tank top and put jeans and boots on so I would be warm and dry for the drive home.

I got to the gym and noticed they still hadn't corrected the hot and humid temp in there they messed up last week. UGH! I told myself to suck it up, good practice for the Warrior Dash I am registered for in the summer.

I noticed in the locker room that I forgot my workout pants. ARGH! I thought 'I'm skipping this, I'm tired anyway!' Then I remembered my Facebook post, "no excuses Tuesday". Grrrr! Blast my stupid Pollyanna attitude!

So I went home, got the pants and went back to the gym. Running back and forth through the cold parking lot woke me up.

i decided I'd only run a mile but actually I had a good 3 1/2 mile run. A little bit of walking to catch my breath for 30 seconds here and there but then I pushed myself to hit 6.0 and 6.2 for speed which is unheard of for me. A few times when I knocked the speed down to 5.0 it felt slow! SHUT UP! SO COOL!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, some of my best workouts happened when I thought I was too tired or conditions were not quite to my standards!

I have to remember my "no excuses" post each day!

    LOVE THIS! Good for you for breaking out of the warm couch! That really is something to be proud of all on it's own. But then you overcome obstacles and had an even better than planned work out! This is the best kind of exercise. It's makes you strong on the inside!

That happens to me, too! (having the best workout when I've had to push past tiredness or lack of motivation to work out)
