Excuses

A little over a week ago I did the Shore Run 5K and while I have wanted to I haven't run since. Life has just been getting in my way this month.  Today I looked up the race photo's and these two are the best of the few that were snapped of me. In the second one I actually think that both feet might be off the ground at the same time.

 


This week I had ever intention of running 3x after work, but then Monday we were surprised with a business trip for my husband. I skipped my run Monday to hang with him as he had to fly out early, like before the sun was up on Tuesday. Excuse #1!  I have a little mommy guilt about putting my little booger in the gym daycare after she has been in preschool all day while I work, so no running on Tuesday. Excuse #2! The hubs will fly home late tonight so no running tonight. Excuse #3! All I hear is excuses!

My goal is to get up in the morning and run before work since my hubs should be home and snoozing.   I wonder if my declaration to run in the AM will actually happen. I mean I declared Wednesday Yoga day and it hasn't happened YET- but I do have it planned to do Yoga tonight after I put the little one to bed.

In other fun news I pick up my first CSA box tonight! So excited. I also bought a Living Social deal for 20 Kickboxing Class for only $20 - the gym is really close to my house and for $20 I couldn't pass it up, now I just have to work it into my schedule.

Have you ever purchased any deals fitness related deals from a discount site like Living Social or Groupon?

  1. I love pics that catch me off the ground :) I've had a ton of excuses lately, too. I'm not sure how some people get so much done.

  2. ummmm...I bought a sampler pack of beers from the local brewery for my husband on Groupon. Does that count as fitness related? :)

  4. Healthystrides has bought several fitness Groupons and had the BEST luck with them. She has done yoga and had day passes to a gym (maybe 2 different gyms???). Can't wait to hear about how your experience is.

    As far as excuses - you know, I've often thought that I might have found a new career - I'm thinking about opening up a phone line for people to call (guess I could do it over the internet too) for people to call (or log onto) and I would provide them with an excuse not to run or workout for the day. Seriously - I can find the MOST reasons NOT to run . . . and usually they seem so valid to me (particularly at the time). No worries- life happens. A week of no running or running less isn't going to make or your break your Olympic trials - it's suppose to be fun and if you feel pressured to fit it in or to put your daughter in day care or to cut your time with your hubby short, then it's not going to be fun!! No worries - there's plenty of time for running (and yoga). Good luck!

  7. Yes I have purchased a kickboxing class and belly dancing lessons. But have I cashed them in yet is the better question? No, I haven't... but I will let you know how it goes when I finally do. I think you will love the kickboxing. It's one of my favorite workouts!
