Happy Friday! Congratulations on making to the end of another week .
I haven’t been recapping my workouts on this here blog lately, partly because they just haven’t been very exciting. Up until my race last weekend I was mostly doing a lot of running and not a whole lot else. Now that I’ve done my race, I’m trying to figure out how I want my workout plan to look going forward.
Since my life has gotten a lot busier in the last little while, I’ve been struggling a bit to figure out how exactly working out fits in to my life. Not only do I have less time, I also have less energy, and I often my find myself exhausted at the end of the day feeling like the last thing that I want to do is work out. I know that if I force myself to get out the door I’ll actually feel more energized, it’s just a matter of getting my butt off of that comfortable couch and doing it. Having runs written in my calendar when I’m training for a race makes me much more likely to actually follow through and do them, so I think that making a plan and writing it down is one way that I can force myself to be accountable to my goals. Here are the things I’d like to incorporate fitness-wise on a weekly basis.
- At least two runs, with one of those runs over 5k
- At least one group fitness class
- At least one yoga session, either at home or at a class
- At least one workout before work or at lunch
I’m hoping that now that I’ve written those goals down I’ll be more likely to stick to them. And, of course, I have all of you to hold me accountable. I can’t disappoint the internet, now can I ?
How do you keep yourself accountable with working out when you’re not training for anything specific?
