I Know Better..

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

I have never been able to get my butt up early to exercise. I know that about myself. This morning, was no different. The alarms went off this morning and i was supposed to hit the pavement. That didnt happen. So now, I gotta make sure that even after my long day at work (50 patients and the doc wont get there until 1:30pm - insane) I will have to be extra motivated and get myself to run. My plan? pack my clothes in the car and change at work once i get back to the office, pack an extra "KIND" bar and eat that then go run before i head home. Then tonight after i get home (may be 9pm!) i will eat my dinner then brush my teeth. Tuesday nights are always my temptation times because tuesday work days are always beyond stressful for me. They are always long and late and my eating is always thrown off. I dont have time to eat because this doctor i work with on tues and thurs is very demanding and wants patients every second so i cant take a break. Anyway, after i brush my teeth, i am going to tweak my running schedule so that tuesdays are rest days i think. Anyway, i hope you all have a wonderful day! Love you guys.

    Tweaking the schedule so your busy work day can be your rest day is brilliant!

    Watch out Palm Springs!!

    Sounds like a plan changing your running schedule to a less busy day! I moved my off day to a Monday in order to spend more time with DH. I can't seem to get up and exercise in the morning either.

    Sounds like a good plan: rest day on your most stressful work day!

    It all starts with the plan. Hopefully today will be better than expected and you will fly through your run!

    I had the same problem this morning. Stayed in bed for 45 minutes longer instead of running. Now I regret it but at the time it felt good. Hubby is going to help me with ST again tonight and then a walk. Better than nothing. Tomorrow morning, I RUN!!!!

    wo what a day for you. It is good to see that you know there are issues with Tuesdays and are planning accordingly. That is the cure for the battle. You know what you need to do so go for it.

    Juggling work stress and training can be a pain you know where.
    The human body is an incredible thing. It can adjust to almost anything. Even us night people can crawl out of bed at 3:10am to get a good 10 miler in before work. But one must sacrifice. Ohhhhhhhhh, not that dang alarm again. Plan a reasonable schedule and stick to it. Early morning runs have advantages. Nothing out here except me, a few deer, and maybe a skunk or two. If your body needs Tuesday off, then make it a rest day. Give your new schedule some time for your body to adjust but it will. Yessssssssssss

    Shoo, that is quite the plan! I know you can do anything when you set your mind to it. Just do it! :0)

    this is great that you realize your weak points and are trying to find a way to make your hectic schedule work with your workout schedule, as an early riser I don't struggle with this too much but I understand how tough it can be to workout when you don't want too

    I am so opposite you. I'm a morning person. I was up @ 5:45 so that i can spin at home before taking my son to his first day of school (10th grader!) & to meet a friend at 9:15 for coffee. Night time, I'm too tired. I'm usually in bed by 10:00. Kuddos to you though, for bringing your gear w/ you and just DOING IT!!
