As usual I didn't have any interest in hitting the gym tonight. Getting to the gym for me is hard every single time but especially on Monday's after a long day at work, the last thing I want to do is exercise. I texted my good friend, she's awesome and hates exercise too so whenever I don't want to go to the gym I text her with a ridiculous reason and she completely agrees with me. Well today I texted her but had no good reason, I mean I didn't even make a workout on the weekend what with all the sleeping and shopping and visiting I was doing so I figured even she wouldn't have a good excuse...
She said that I was wise to text her with my dilemma you see a few friends of hers had come down with Norfolk or Norwalk or some sort of "NOR" virus and that it's going around and I should just come home to be safe from all the germs.. I love her, she's too funny and I almost, almost bought into it.
In all honesty while I didn't want to go I also felt like a complete slug so as I drove home, the usual thoughts racing through my head I just told myself to STFU and get on with it, which I did. I had a decent run. Next week I'm going to bump the time to 45 minutes, I think I may even be fitter than a 30 minute run, go figure. Wednesday I have bike/run which I am looking forward to. I don't do near the miles or time that my cool twitter buddies do so I can enjoy getting off the bike and running for a bit, for me it's all about variety. I also desperately need a new playlist for running.
So on that note here are my stats to catch up from last week.
Thurs - Bike 45m calories burned 308 (and oh god my ass hurt!)
Friday - 60 minutes of weight circuits with my trainer 485 calories burned
Monday - 32 minute run, 329 calories burned
Calories burned in 2010: 2772 (this definitely needs to get HIGHER!)
