I Like to Work Out

    I wasn't going to go to kickboxing tonight.

    I was feeling a wee bit ornery about short- and long-term projects on my list which is a sure sign for a much-needed workout. I pulled up my big girl panties, changed and went to the last class available for the night. I'm glad I did. Our instructor smiled the entire time and...

    Working Out After Work.... Can Be a Bad Idea

    I went to work out after a 12 hour night shift at work. I was exhausted but I needed to get it out of the way because I was not going to wake up in enough time to do it before work. I drank an energy drink and got on the treadmill. I was doing just fine but twenty minutes into my...

    Working out keeps me healthy,

    increases my metabolism, and makes my life force feel stronger. It makes me feel good, makes my heart, lungs, and muscles stronger, and is a great way to procrastinate evil econ homework! I like working out, which is something I never thought I would say a month ago.

    I rode my 45-mile ride today

    I did a Map My Ride of yesterday's bike ride.

    ..45+ miles with a backpack. I'm feeling it today, but I feel good about the mileage I covered. I also had the chance to get more of a feel of where my bike needs to be tuned up during shifting. I have a window of opportunity to bring her in before my duathlon at the end of April...
