Back At It!
Wednesday, March 16, 2011
After realizing that my excuses not to run outside were adding up, I finally signed up for the gym!
I haven't been in the gym since June 2010. I was still working out after then, but the occurences became less and less when it became too cold out. I love running outdoors, but sometimes it's way too cold in Boston to run (personally).
By the time I signed up for the gym last night, they were about to close. I was able to run 2 miles at least. I left with a red face lol. I felt good though. I felt like I was getting back on track.
I woke up this morning at 5:30AM to workout. THIS IS HUGE FOR ME. I always struggled to wake up early to workout. It helped that my boyfriend was motivating me to get up. We headed to the gym bright & early. I ran 2 miles and did some upper body/core exercises. Oh yea, I really don't like the dreadmill :(
I have an appointment with a personal trainer next week. That will be interesting. My goals are to: tone up, prepare for half marathon & work on my core strength.
