Days Eighteen & Nineteen - Running and Working

Work kept me from updating yesterday, and kept me from the gym today. I had an early meeting that required preparation, so I decided to just get up and come to work extra-early. Still, it would have been nice to have the early-rise habit so ingrained that rising even earlier would have been as easy as flicking on(off?) a switch. Alas, I'm not there yet.

Yesterday, I made it for a morning run. The new gym shoes are working out great. I ended up working late, missing a company happy our(open bar!). I completely forgot about updating the blog in a haze of work.

So, at the end of (almost) two weeks, the results are mixed. Through nineteen days, I was successful fifteen times. Not bad, but not my goal. Perhaps I was aiming too high.

With that in mind, I have a new goal, of going five straight days next week. A step down from four consecutive weeks, but considering the last two weeks I went four then three days, that's where I'm at right now. If I'm successful next week, I'll try for another.

No new gym bag yet.


  1. i used to workout no less than 3 days each week - lots of running, stretching, and an hour+ in the weight room.

    classes were always something to work around, but now i have an internship and two jobs that suck up all my energy. it's a struggle now to make it to the weight room; after an hour on the treadmill and elliptical i'm DONE.

    keep it up. have to admire a guy with goals, healthy ones at that!

  2. Thanks for the kind words :)

    Between two jobs and an internship, I'm not sure you should expect yourself to make it to the weight room. Sounds exhausting! I know I'd struggle with it.
