A short workout is better than none

Yesterday was another long day in the office. Then, I had my long drive home. I thought about stopping for a beer on the way home from work, but decided that I need to get in a workout instead. I need to start making better decisions - even if they are little - one at a time.

So, I got home at 6:45 last night. The sun was heading down. I changed clothes as quickly as I could and headed out for a run. It was a simple workout - a warm-up, one hard mile (hard is not the same as fast, regretfully), and then a cool-down. I was done in about 25 minutes.

But, more importantly, I ran instead of giving in to the desire to drink a couple beers and just sit on my butt for a while.

Tonight is a lifting night.

Big difference between you and me is that for me, it's not a "choice" : )

Lifts still running up there?

Jay, Sugarbush and K-Mart are still open. Sugarbush will be the next to go. Jay is making noise about May, but that's probably a stretch.

And yes, I appreciate that I have the choice to run or not, although as the years and recently, the pounds, add up, the choice to NOT do something seems easier and easier.
