Adjusting the "schedule"
I realized today that starting in a week, I will be taking summer classes!
Since I use my lunch hour (and then some) to do so, this means I won’t be having much free time to work out during the day.
I contemplated getting up early this morning to practice an a.m. run but it just didn’t happen. I’m still dealing with allergies and a cough, so mornings are the worst as far as how I feel. Since I still have a week to go, I’m hoping I’ll figure out how to adjust my “schedule” so that I can fit in workouts without feeling stressed.
Today, I went to the gym at lunch because I know that here lately, waiting until the end of the day has been dangerous. I’ve backed out of many a 4:00 workout the past couple of weeks. So 12:45 was a much safer bet!
I did 2 miles on the treadmill in 21:40 (a 10:50/mile pace) and I felt good. I stretched a lot afterwards then came back to work and ate a Larabar.
I figure for my new workout schedule, I have two options:
- Get up early and work out in the morning
- Work out after work or at night
I think it will end up being a combination of the two, depending on my schedule, how I’m feeling, the weather, etc. Speaking of weather, as it is getting warmer, these two times of day will be more ideal anyway. This week it is going to be 87 every day!
Hello, Summer 😉
What time of day do you prefer to work out? What factors does it depend upon?
