Morning Exercise Challenge
I know that I’ve bemoaned it many a time on the blog, but to say that I am not a morning person would be a gross understatement.
I am a night person. I have not gone to sleep before 11pm, since I was 12 years old. When I was little (like under 5), my parents would dress me in the morning while I lay in bed, a bunch of dead weight.
Anyway, I have decided to challenge myself to start doing morning exercise. Since we are busy with the dog and enjoying each other’s company (like Friday night date night), it’s hard to find time in the evenings to get to the gym. I know that by going in the morning, I am essentially freeing up my evenings to perhaps clean my house (it’s seriously disgusting), work on wedding projects, or just snuggle with Matt.
Therefore I am challenging myself to go to the gym every weekday morning (except Wednesdays, since I have my trainer Wednesday evenings) for the next three weeks! What’s at the end of those three weeks? Why, my second dress fitting of course! (Ah, there’s the real motivation!) When I told Matt this, he scoffed and gave me a skeptical face. So now I’m doing it to prove him wrong. If I complete my challenge, he will give me lots of hugs. If I don’t, I still get hugs.
So what did I do this morning? Well remember my goals for 2011? One is to run a 5k in 30 minutes. I did W1D1 of C25K with my walking at 3.8mph, and my running at 6.2mph. I made it! HA!
