Monday, I wore my workout clothes all day.
Well, I slept in (I needed it!) and knew I would have to squeeze in my hill workout when I could find the time. Having my workout gear on meant I would be ready to go when that time came. But the time kept on slipping away, as Steve Miller would say.
I wore my workout clothes on my errands, to play with T Junior and, eventually, I found myself cooking dinner in my running skirt and technical t-shirt with an apron on to protect them. And, yes, my running shoes had been on all day, too.
Finally, after dinner, after dishes and dinner clean-up, after T Junior was all tucked in and Mr. T was home from work, I snuck out the door to run some hills. On the schedule — 4 miles with 8×200 of that being hill repeats. (See workout HERE.)
I hate to say “hi” then “bye” to my husband when he gets home, which is why I normally get up early to exercise, but sometimes a day doesn’t go according to plan. (And, as it turns out, me slipping out for a bit gave him time for a treadmill workout of his own.)
Exercising — whether it’s running, walking, riding your bike, hiking or doing a Jillian video — is not always easy to make time for.
But sometimes you just have to make it happen.
What did you make happen today?
