So ... it's no surprise that I haven't exactly been motivated to work out. Once it became clear that I wouldn't be able to run the half marathon I had planned for in October, I couldn't stop asking myself what the point of running was. I mean running was always my go-to for exercise but without a race scheduled all motivation gets thrown out the window.
Last week I decided to take matters into my own hands and signed up for 40 days of yoga for $40 at Orlando Power Yoga. If running wasn't going to motivate me then maybe yoga would. So far I've gone to 1 yoga class. Good thing I have over 30 days left in my pass. Hopefully I'll get to a couple of classes this week.
I've also taken a liking to cycling in the gym. Sitting down and watching TV while working out? What's not to love? Monday I managed to cycle for 22 minutes, 7:36 miles, all while chatting on my phone with Julie. Yesterday I decided to up the mileage (and effort) and in 25 minutes cycled 10:05 miles. Much faster pace and definitely more sweat (gross, I know).
Although I'm viewing the past 2 days of work outs as "lazy" I have to remind myself that it's still better than not doing anything at all. Hopefully the fall weather will bring out the running bug again.
