So last week was so fabulous I could hardly believe it. This week? Not so much. I've been under a lot of pressure this week for some school work, both in the classes I teach and the classes I take, and I just haven't worked out. The good news here is that I have the next 5 days off so I can turn that around right now. And I will!! As soon as I'm done with this post I'm off to strength train. Then I'm going to do some school work and run a couple of errands and around 2 I'm going for a run. It will be like this for the next 5 days.
I like working out twice a day for a number of reasons. It's very hard to shake the mindset that I have to work out for at least an hour. That number, 60 minutes, is so firmly embedded in my head no matter how hard I try that's the yardstick I use for all workouts. So, by working out twice a day I don't have the pressure of getting 60 minutes in one workout. This allows me to do a 30 minute workout in the morning - which is all I have time for - and get my running in at night. Also, by splitting it up I get my strength training and my cardio done in short bursts rather then a marathon session. Plus, I actually workout more then 60 minutes by doing it this way. So it's a win-win all the way around. So that's what I'm going to do.
I have 5 days off, then back to school for 3 weeks, then 3 weeks off. I love this teaching gig!! Really love it. But that means I have a 10k in a little over a month and there is no way I am ready for that. I have got to get serious and consistent about the workouts. So my goal for the next 5 days is to get my twice a day workouts in. I will strength train in the morning and run in the evening. On the off days I will either do yoga or the elliptical.
As soon as school is done we are having the Winter Ball. I have agreed to chaperon it but that means I have to get a dress and some new shoes. I was looking at some Christian Louboutin shoes. They are gorgeous but I don't know how practical they are for a school teacher. We'll see. I do have about three weeks to get something. How exciting. I never went to my school dance :)
