Better Decisions

Yesterday, I was scheduled for a guitar lesson from 5-6. And, I had to drop my son off at his keyboard lesson at 4:30.

So, I got to work by 7:00 and worked straight through until just after 4:00. I dropped off my son, went to my lesson, and then headed straight to the gym. I did four miles on the treadmill, including six slow quarter mile intervals. The hamstring is a bit sore today, but not too bad. I may try the same workout, only a bit faster, while it's pouring on Saturday.

So, I could have claimed a busy day and skipped my workout. Instead. I got home in time to cook dinner and eat with the family. After dinner, I read a little bit rather than watching the World Series, so I knew I'd get to sleep at a reasonable time. This morning, I was up early and into the office early.

That means that later today, I'll have time to stop at the gym for an hour or so on the way home for a lifting workout.

I have to get back to managing my time better so I don't create excuses to skip workouts.

Oh yeah, the intervals, as slow as they were, were the fastest running I've done since I hurt my hamstring.

Good work on the scheduling. We get busy and the workouts are the first thing to go. We need to rethink those priorities somehow. :)
