What do Good Intentions get you……. in the form of exercise….NOTHING.
The running joke in my house is that on the days I have 2 workouts (Tuesday and Thursday) I will actually get up and drag my sorry butt out of bed at 4:45am. I have good intentions. REALLY. I tell my family each time (accountability) that I am going to do this. They watch me set up my bike on the trainer in the garage the night before. Review my workout from coach. Mix my bottles and place them in the frig…music…you get the picture. All the while laughing at me.
Now it is Tuesday morning and I still have my two workouts to do AFTER WORK plus other family stuff so in a nutshell I will have a long afternoon/night.
10 minute warm-up (zone 1-2)
3 x 15 minute steady pace (zone 3) (3 minute recovery between each set)
10 minute cool down (zone 1-2)
Strength Training –
Not going to list each workout but I will point out that I am moving into a new phase. Going from 2 sets of 12 to 3 sets of 10 with a few workout changes. Excited about this! Plus did I mention that my son has been doing the routine with me each week. Makes it much more enjoyable plus he pushes me.
So now I am hopeful for Thursday A.M……… alright you better not be laughing!
