I am a nerd and I am completely convinced that the first day of school sets up what is going to happen the rest of the year.
Last night after watching at least 5 episodes of 30 Rock trying to fall asleep at 9:30 when I am used to my 1 a.m. summer bedtime, I thought there was no way in heck I was going to get up at 5 to go to the gym.
But guess who did?
Um, yeah sorry about the flash….I was already sacrificing washing my hair because I was already late, I did not have the time to retake my sweaty picture.
Yep. I amazed myself. The creepiest part is that when my alarm clock went off I wasn’t even tired…..must be from all the excitement that I have of spending the next 9 months of my life teaching teenagers important life skills (that I am still learning myself).
My shin splints have been acting up a teeny tiny bit again and so I have decided to take this week off from running and so I did 45 minutes on the eliptical, 15 minutes on the stairclimber of death and 20 minutes on the stationary bike so I could finish reading, ‘The Violet of March’ (such a good book… it took me two days to read it because I was HOOKED).
What was/is your workout today?
Are you a fan of the stairclimber? Does it make you sweat like crazy/breath heavy and have a heart rate of 200 bpm like it does for me?
