Come 7 a.m., it felt like a nap was necessary. I went back to bed for a while and decided to get out of it, put on the running shoes and outfit and go for an easy 1-miler on the treadmill. Yes. That was the smartest thing I did today.
What I thought about while I was walking?
There had been so many times when I felt OK to put off the workout till later in the day and eventually, when 12 a.m. comes and I am way too tired to even change into my running shoes. There were also times when stepping on the treadmill at 9 p.m. worked really well. It all really depends.
I have learned to just commit. For example: This morning, I could have just napped. Instead, I committed myself to one mile. And that walk really woke me up and I felt energized instantaneously. A few nights ago, I was getting really lazy but I had to get a walk in since I didn't exercise the day before. I committed again to one mile.
Moral of the story?
Squeeze a workout in - however short it might be. You will feel better.
What's your "moral of the story" that you have learned?
What do you tell yourself to get yourself out the door/onto the treadmill in the morning/noon/evening?
