Not feeling the need for speed
Tuesday, March 11, 2014
So I'm 11 days into a personal commitment to go to the gym every day for 100 days. So far I have made it every day, and I'm swimming a lot more, which is important for the upcoming triathlon season. I'm actually enjoying it quite a bit now that I'm getting into the swim routine. Today, though, was supposed to be weight training and treadmill. I did great on the weight training--45 minutes of lifting. Then I looked at the treadmill and felt like I was going to throw up. I just could NOT make myself get on the thing. I walked around the gym for a few minutes, trying to psych myself up, but it was not happening. So I packed it in and left.
I just can't get enthusiastic about jogging/running. Which is kind of bad for triathloning. And I'm committed to a 5 MILE event with my daughter on Saturday. I expect that she will finish, then come back for me about 2 miles in and cheerlead me the rest of the way. I wish I could get enthused about running. I love to walk, and even jog outside. That treadmill, though. It's torture.
