Reluctant Workout

Pre-Gym inner dialogue

If the parking lot is full, I am going home. Dammit, 5 open spaces. Fine I will go in. But....

If the treadmills are all taken, I am going home. Dammit, at least 6 open treadmills including my favorite one. Fine, I will get on, but ...

If I still feel like this after a mile, I am going home. If I run three miles then I will have an even 10 miles so far this week and it is only Tuesday. Dammit. Fine, I will do 3 miles, but...

If I don't finish the three miles at least 5 minutes before the class, I am not going to strength class. Dammit, 7 min to spare. Fine, I will go!

Exercise Log

Treadmill (30 min 33 sec)
Run 3 miles (10:11 min/mile)

Strength Class (30 minutes)
One of my favorite instructors. As long as I do not have to laugh, breathe, or do anything that requires the use of my abdominal muscles this week, I should be fine.

I really do feel better for going, but damn, it is hard to get in the door some days!

I'm sitting here, laughing at that fat cat who's wearing a headband. LOL. I needed that.
