I am the first to admit that in the past I have been known to skip work outs, then panic and do like 3 work outs the next day to make up for it. Well when I skipped the Kenpo X on Saturday for the 9 mile run I had that same panic. I was thinking “Ok well I will do it on Monday, along with Core Synergistics and my run”. Then that stressed me out.
I was thinking of nutrition and how I was going to eat. Normally I eat breakfast after I have worked out. When I do 2 work outs that are longer than 30 minutes each I eat something small like a banana in between, then eat breakfast. But this 2 hour and 40 minute work out session really had me thinking crazy “I will run, then eat a banana, then do kenpo X, then recovery drink, then wait 20 minutes, then do Core Synergistics”. I was seriously out of my mind. Plus I have some other scheduling conflicts for the rest of the week.
I woke up this morning and clear headed I thought, “A run, and Core Synergistics sounds perfect!” I went with it, and you know what? I don’t feel
that guilty! Woot! Ok so I finished my run in about 35 minutes and it was 3.25 miles. I should probably take another look at that Novice 2 Program I say I am following. I think the mileage should have been 4, but hey it’s ok. I also did Core Synergistics. It was awesome. I did the prison cell pushups all the way through with out stopping. Woot go me! So with that out of the way on to bigger and better things!
Tomorrow is Valentine’s day and Hubs and I both got the day off. Wow this is a first. So we have plans, and they don’t include working out. So that’s another day I have to add to another day. (am I making sense?). I was thinking maybe I could squeeze in a run? I just don’t think it’s a good idea to take “me time” on a day that’s supposed to be shared with your significat other. I really want to make the day about “us”. It’s important to take the time for eachother.
I have a great Valentine’s Day gift for the Hubs. I am going to write him a love letter and frame it, so I can hang it over the bed on his side. Maybe he will be inspired to do the same for me? Probably not, but worse case scenario I’ll buy two frames and figure out something for my side later. I think it’s romantic.
Do you ever panic when you skip a work out?
What are you Valentine’s Day plans?
