Today was supposed to be my rest day……….you know where this is going, I am sure.
I brought my workout clothes to work today, just in case I felt like doing something in the gym, not necessarily running. So lunchtime comes around and I don’t feel like doing anything, so I didn’t. My legs were a little stiff from doing 3 miles, 2 days in a row already, so I decided that today was going to be a total rest day. No cross training or anything……….
So 4:00PM comes around and it’s storming outside. I went to the restroom before leaving for the day, which is right next to the gym door. When I came out of the restroom, it was lightning and the trees were blowing and it was raining really hard. I didn’t feel like getting soaked while running to my truck…………so……….. I figured……….if I am going to get wet anyways one way or another, I might as well be wet with sweat. I turned around and pushed open the gym door. One hour later, W9D1 was done and it went well despite my lack of enthusiasm earlier. I was showered and changed into clean clothes, and better yet, the rain had stopped. So not only did I get to leave work without getting wet from the rain, but the earlier rain dropped the temperature outside, so I didn’t sweat all the way home either. Things were good today.
So I have had 3 very successful day, running around 3 miles each day, and wanting to run more. They were all indoors, in the AC, with the fan blowing on me, but still. I keep thinking about Week 1, where 60 seconds gave me a hard time. Now I’m doing 28 to 30 minutes and feeling like I could keep going. I’m loving it. What will tomorrow bring? I don’t know, but I am packing my gym clothes to bring to work for sure.
