It Always Feels Better

Fridays are always hard when school is back in session. I am exhausted and the last thing I want to do is exercise at the end of my day.

Going home to workout is even worse, but I had begged boyfriend to run with me yesterday, so I had to go home. I slowly put on my exercise clothes while trying so hard to just not collapse in my bed.

I turned on my Garmin and tried not to sit down. Finally, boyfriend was ready and off we went. The first mile was painful. The second mile was okay and by the third mile all of my energy had returned.

I am almost certain that my splits were positive. But that doesn't matter. What matters is that I actually got my butt outside and ran when I really, really didn't want to. It helped that I was much faster than boyfriend.

After our run, I had the energy to do my shoulder routine and even some ab work. It's amazing how, once you get started, your energy comes back. The hardest part of a workout is getting into your workout clothes and out the door. Once you do that, you're golden.

Now I am going to crawl into bed at 7pm because my energy is gone again. And I have school bright and early. On a Saturday. I hope everyone's Friday was awesome!


  1. Have a great day at school!!!!
