I lost all my momentum and gym mojo from the previous week, but while away in Puerto Rico I did manage to get to the hotel gym for two runs. Coming back to the deep chill that greeted me here in Boston this week (combined with an onslaught of work) provided two excuses rock-solid enough to prevent me from getting to the gym with the exception of my date today with my trainer.
How are you doing with your personal fitness? Are you making time for yourself by going to the gym?
Sunday - December 5th I ran today for the first time since last Tuesday. The past few days have been spent travelling and overindulging to say the least so today's run was not pretty. In fits and gasps I was able to run 3 miles in 0:32:30 *yuck*
Monday - December 6th Today (my 2nd consecutive day of running on vacation) I managed a slightly faster time despite the run remaining equally ugly. I finished the 3 mile run in 0:31:15. I'm still dripping with sweat while I write this and am anxious to get off to return to my poolside chaise and start sipping another of those frozen rum drinks which seem to go down oh so easily.
Friday - December 10th Today I had a somewhat abbreviated workout with my trainer, Stu. Abbreviated because I had to get back to work and was training during the day. However, we focussed on my chest and was able to squeeze in a few reps for my triceps as well. I'm fairly certain I'll feel sore tomorrow as I benched a new personal high of 215 pounds.
