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.
