I have to admit that I've enjoyed these past few days where I can go out and exercise any time I've wanted to. Even though I have some flexibility with my work, on the first day back from Christmas holiday ... attendance was 'mandatory'! This meant that any exercise would be done late in the day, and in the dark!
Even though I got home mid-afternoon in daylight, I ended up going for a run in the dark! WHY I ask myself?!? Don't have a good answer for that one ... so let's move swiftly along!!
Did an hour's run ... so about 6-plus miles. Again, it was at a good steady pace thanks to AudioFuel's music! I do have to admit though ... rather sheepishly ... that I stopped at the 40-minute mark to sign up for that gym membership at Riptide gym that I've been generously offered! Thanks Matt! I'm determined to use the gym regularly and defy all those 'New Year's Resolutioners' who generally last less than a month before giving up. My 'problem' is fitting the gym sessions in with the swims, the bike rides and the runs!! Yet, now with the janathon competition, I've got more incentive to get exercising each and every day ... for at least January!
I do think it's time to 'get a schedule' and get more focused with what I do and when I do it, rather than the rather 'laissez-faire' approach I've been doing lately! Doing the Blenheim Tri in June will provide a good focus to get focused!
I can give myself a pat on the back for the exercise today ... but what do I do about the bottle of wine and pizza I had at dinner with a friend!?!
