|Hubby gave me beautiful flowers on Monday to brighten my desk. I love the colors and they made me forget how dreary it was outside.|
Anyway, after work it was still about 85 degrees and fairly sticky, soooo off the gym I went.
I managed an hour on the treadmill, which is 6 miles for me. I just ran it easy pace. I wish I could say I got a great rhythm going, but I didn't, my goal was to stay in motion for an hour...I know that probably sounds fairly lame, but it's true.
I stretched quite a bit when I was done - I love holding those elongated stretches when I am warm. I did some incline sit-ups and back work in-between stretches. Twenty four minutes later I was suddenly feeling ravenous.
I stopped at Jimmy Johns and in freaky fast time I was scarfing down a seven grain veggie sandwich with baked chips. Ever notice how tasty stuff is when you are really hungry.
As soon as I arrived home, I washed my car. There is some construction work still going on in portions of our building and when I came in out of work my car was covered in a layer of dirt. I don't what they were blowing off the roof but it was gross.
|Car clean and I am ready to pedal :)|
Then I hopped on my bike and pedaled hard around the neighborhood.
Wouldn't it be cool if these were running splits instead of my bike ride?
I went into the house right before dark...vacuumed, washed dishes, threw in a load of towels and finally showered. It felt really good to get the grime off me. :)
I could have waited to run till about 7 p.m., the temp had dropped to comfortable by then, but I am sure I wouldn't have got as much done.
I am anxious to start logging some runs outside soon, sadly the temps, and daylight are still challenging me.
What's your favorite time to work out? Do you work out as soon as you get home from work?
