Day 152 - 165.0 That's what 4 months of working out will do

So yesterday was nuts. I didn't get to the gym before picking up the kids like I try to do most nights, and I was fried from a long work day, and I forgot to bring the toddler's diaper bag with me, and I didn't change into my workout clothes before leaving work to get the kids, and I really needed to do a Target and grocery store run because the cupboards are bare. And you'd think all this combined would keep me from my workout.

Well, think again!

I went anyway. I asked Luke's sitter for two diapers, picked up Sophie from day camp, swung through McDonald's drive thru (I know, I know--I'm ruining their health with nuggets and fries; I'm sure they'll tell Oprah someday), and I was on that treadmill at 6:30 p.m.

I did 3.26 miles in 40 minutes, including my 2 mile run, and got home by 7:30. It was a late night for us all, but I felt great afterwards and so glad I didn't let the excuses get in the way of taking care of myself.

great workout and way to persevere and fit it into a busy day. I say, why put off to the evening the workout I can do at 4:45am. (oh, wait, that's just my psychotic side talking!)

mmmm. french fries. mmmm.

Good for you for getting on the treadmill! I'm also training for a 5k, and skipping days has been my downfall. Right now it's 6pm, and I STILL haven't done my daily run...fortunately, it's still light for another 3 hours. Anyhoo, congrats to you. Is there a marathon in your future?
