Two days in a row

I shouldn’t be this excited considering I worked out first thing in the morning for . . . oh . . . about 14 years of my life.  But considering I don’t have a single workout partner or any form of external influence to “encourage” me to do so nowadays I’m significantly proud that I once more got up early and worked out BEFORE work.

It is fantastic to come home after work and have the evening completely free and not have to force yourself to muster the mental energy to get out the door and workout.

Here’s all what I did before the sun came up today:

I’m feeling really strong on the pushups.  This workout for example only called for 50 reps in the last set.  Did 57.  No ‘pike’ resting either.  I took one or two quick breathing breaks in the plank position but for the most part just knocked them out.  Solid.

Wasn’t feeling really strong for this run.  Could have been the time of morning.  Could have been the cycling the previous day (always hard on the legs).  Really just wanted to slog through at a slow trot, but I scrolled through the custom workouts on my Garmin and decided to knock out this 30s hard/30s easy run.  It was not fun.

    1. That’s because you stayed in too long. You got institutionalized, like Brooks Hadlin in the Shawshank Redemption. You’re just lucky you got out when you did. A little bit longer and you’d only be able to eat MRE’s for the rest of your life.
