The hardest thing for me is not the work-out itself, but the days in which I do the work-out. For instance, I was scheduled to run 3 mi on Tues....I ran it Wednesday instead. To me that's not that big of a deal, as long as I get it done. Sometimes in life we can't control everything.
I'm learning that it is OK if I don't get my work-out in/ finish in the time planned, because such is life! It is not perfect. more important things come up than working out sometimes.
However....that should not be used as an excuse! :)
Here's some of my favorite things this week!
did anyone see the men's 5000 meter race?! 5000 meters= 3.1 miles. The guy in the black finished the race in 13 mins and change....13 minutes. I do 1 mile in about 10:30 if I'm lucky....i think i need to start training with this guy.
2. Cross-training: Swimming
I think I've found my new favorite cross-training activity! I've always been a fish in the water, but have found a new love and respect for swimming for excercise. If you have never swam laps...i mean real laps..., it's a total body work-out. and the most stress-free excerice you can do with your body. Plus you don't have to deal with sweat. and it's refreashing in this heat wave.
