I keep having good intentions. And then life gets in the way. Life, in this case, was a cold/upper respiratory thing that crept in Saturday evening. (It can go away now. Whenever it wants!) Also, I find that if I don’t work out during my lunch hour, it probably isn’t going to happen after work.
Tuesday – Elliptical for 30 minutes.
Wednesday – Nothing. I had lunch with my co-workers.
Thursday – Discovered as I was leaving my office that I lost my iPod between my car and office door. It was just a Shuffle, so it was clipped on my purse, and I know it must have been knocked loose and probably fell near my car. After 4 trips back and forth (it’s not a long walk) I just knew it was gone and I was pretty bummed. I ran about 2.5 miles with only two songs on my iPhone. (Happy, being one of them. I was so over that song on Thursday.)
Friday – Took the day off as I had a busy work day and I needed to leave the office early to do some stuff in town.
Saturday – Ran 3.3(ish) miles. I downloaded a few more songs to my phone. I ran in my neighborhood (my car was having some work done) and it was a decent run.
Sunday – I couldn’t stop coughing Saturday night. This moved into Sunday and I was so bummed that I just couldn’t run when the sun finally came back out. We did take a 30-minute walk, so I wasn’t completely glued to my couch.
I felt like I was coming off of a pretty good week of working out, and I just slid back into laziness. Hoping this is temporary, but I don’t know. Do you prefer to exercise before or after work – or, like me, during your lunch hour?
I have a 10k coming up in less than two weeks. I’m hoping to get through it without walking! And then I hope to have a few more races lined up before my half marathon in June. June is going to be here before I know it!
