Yes, I haven't run a lick since Saturday. I love to run. I just haven't. It doesn't fit in lately. To run, means I have to leave the house. To leave the house means I have to either bring both kids, or leave them home. I can only leave them home if there is another adult (my husband) there, and since baseball is back in season...that ain't happening. Both children squished into the bike carriage turned running stroller is certain disaster after 1 mile. So, we compromise.
I do like to exercise early in the morning. And, yesterday on Dr. Oz, he mentioned that the best time to exercise is in the morning. But, at the time I have to get outside, it's pitch dark and I get freaked out too easily running out there alone in the .... dark. Don't like it. Probably not too safe.
Sooo...I've started another round of INSANITY. I've been doing it off and on, just sort of picking through the videos which one I felt like doing that day on off running days. But, since most days lately are off running days, I've decided to just jump back in.
This means that I'm probably not going to be running that half in June. Kind of a bummer, but I don't think I'm one who can just run a half without training well before hand. Who knows though. I'm not counting it out completely, and I'm not quitting running. I'm just doing something else in it's place until I can get back on schedule.
I will say that mostly, I judge my fitness level on how I feel when I'm working out, and during the Pure Cardio yesterday, I was able to do the entire video up to the V-Pushups. I had to stop in the middle of those for a second to let my head boil back down from the brink of explosion, and to let my shoulders simma down. So this round of INSANITY is going to be an A&% kicker!! Love it!!
Anyway, I just wanted to update on the workout status...and mention that I'm not totally slacking off, just a change in plans.
I'll un-officially call the next segment 2 Things Tuesday because these 2 things make me smile.
|Jordi and Grammy made me a craft...stamps, stickers, the whole works. Love my Jordi Bear!!|
|D-Man, jamming to some MJ at the bowling party on Sunday for his friend at school. This is his "cool" face. Love!!|
How about you? What happens when you've got a change in schedule? How do you work around it? What's your all time favorite workout?
What makes you smile?
