Work It: The Return

Workout: 3 mile treadmill run in 28:15 minutes
Calories: 2000

Woof, woof, woof!

For those of you that may not know what that is, I'm channeling Arsenio here! I know, the geezer indicator is going off the charts here!

Today's treadmill workout:


Even more awesome: close to 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep!

It’s amazing how getting a good night’s rest reenergizes you. That’s why I have to take advantage of those days when I have enough energy to work it out!

For a while I’d been locked down on getting an hour of exercise a day. I would feel bad if I only got 30 or 40, worse if it was only 20 minutes.

I think I’m getting past it and accepting that the circumstances have changed and I just have to adapt. I may not be able to do an hour of cardio followed by yoga (because sleep is of greater value), but it almost just makes the time that I do work it out so much sweeter. Plus, it pushes me a little bit harder.

Plus, plus and even more of a plus: I get an extra half-hour of sleep!!!

How about you, does sleep trump workouts?

t-2 days til the weekend :)
