The Early Bird


I got up this morning and got my workout clothes on.  The plan: to run for 30 minutes straight.  I hadn't done that in a long time.  I had allowed myself to slack in my running and just run 20 minutes.  Today, I ran for 30 minutes after a 5 minute warm up, and did a 5 minute cool down.  I then hopped on the spin cycle and did 20 minute cycling.  I felt strong and capable to take on the day. 

I have forgotten to challenge myself.  I need to push a bit past my comfort zone.  And I need to remember that it is all mind over matter.  My capable of more.  I just have to devote the time.  I don't want to rush through an exercise session.  I want to get all I need to get out of it. 

I have created a new schedule for the month: 4 days of running and 3 days of spinning; Strength training has to be fit in somewhere. 

Thank you to all the commenters who gave me such positive feedback.  I know that we are sometimes harder on ourselves, and can't see things as clearly as others do.


  1. Good job. Isn't it hard to fit everything in? I wonder if we didn't have all the chores, jobs etc of life if we would really work out more? Uhm...not so sure.....
    Great goals.

  2. Great job! It's hard to fit it all in AND push yourself to reach that next level, but it's worth it for how good it can make you feel.

  3. It sounds like you're on the right track!! Keep up the good work.
