Still plugging along
Thursday, March 26, 2015
Hello Sparkland! I hope everyone is having a great day! It is a beautiful day in my neck of the woods, and I have the next 2 days off!
I am still having a tough time running... but I managed to get in 3 miles (walked 1/2 of it) the other day. I hope to do 4 miles, with 2.5 of that running, tomorrow, then if the hubs works Saturday morning I will try to get out again for 4ish miles. My 12k is coming up quick and I need to get back to my long runs after a couple of tough weeks!
I need to find a way to get my butt in gear in the mornings. Even 15 minutes could be a game changer. But, like today, I wound up 15 minutes late to work, not the reverse! I realize that my best shot at quicker weight loss will be HIIT workouts. But I'm having a hard time dedicating myself. I also need to make sure the dog gets out for more walks, but I have yet to do that.
3.5 weeks... I need to get on track so that I recover faster after surgery and can get back to life. I need to push, push, push until surgery... then I can have a few days of rest. No time to waste!
What kinds of tricks do you use to get yourself to wake up early or workout after a 11+ hr day at work??
