True Story

OK so I DID make it to the gym early this morning and did some speed work and strength training. YES!!

Here is the crazy part of the story. It took me 20 minutes after my alarm went off before I actually moved out of the bed. I was awake just not wanting to get out of those comfty blankets..assessing my ears and throat and trying to find an excuse, but I really did feel better. So when I finally did move I quickly threw my clothes on and I was off. As I pulled into the parking lot I was thinking, "Awww it so nice to be back with familiar cars and faces that I know will be waiting inside". I don't KNOW any of those people but they are there every day at the same time. Girl in the turqoise tank, Man with the white turtle neck, sweet older gals, eliptical mama's with buns of steel...you know what I am talking about. OK, so anyways as I walked in the door to put my things in the cubby and a man (white hair head band man) said to me, "It has been quite a few days off hasn't it???". Wow he totally took me by surprise since no one talks to anyone it seems. WHAT????
I think I did some sad laugh and said, "Oh my schedule has changed". Which is true but I have missed more days that I would have liked and it has been HARD to get there mentally and logistically. Dude he was totally calling me out, and I didn't even know him. Do I need this "supervision"....it really may help. As I began to warm up I debated going over to him and giving him a more lengthy explanation...spring break, sick, etc., but I didn't.

I had a great workout and really appreciated someone caring...I think. So I am hopeful that I am out of my funk and can find some type of schedule again soon. Hard with hubby working LONG days and being gone BUT I am going to Keep on Keeping On! Still a in shock from this morning events...crazy!

Hope everyone find time to RUN, RUN this week!

Way to break out of your funk! Isn't it weird when someone's 'watching' you like that?

Glad your feeling better!
Wow someone is keeping you accountable!! Kind of nice! Good luck getting your schedule worked out! I know I am completely lost with out a schedule!


Thanks for letting me know how you get it done.

As for my legs, I teach a fitness class that incorporates lots of squats and lunges! I also played soccer for 15 years and was a Division 1 Shot putter and discus thrower, where we lifted like crazy. All of that has attributed to my crazy legs!
