On Not Bailing

I left work around 6:45 last night. Already hungry, tired and knowing I had a 30 min drive ahead, I started to debate whether or not to go to the gym. In a text with Scott, I told him I was headed home, and he asked if I was headed to the gym. Well then - if I bail now, the guilt factor goes up bc someone KNOWS I bailed. It's easier to justify a no show if no one thought you were going. 

I had clothes and shoes in my car, but had to dig around the clean laundry to find the items I needed. After rustling around for a few minutes, I almost gave up on the notion that I might have a pair of yoga pants and was about to pass on the gym. But - You can't get to the parking lot of the gym and legitimately find a reason to leave, especially if you KNOW the pants are in the car. 

In I went. 1.5 miles on the treadmill (I upped it to 5.2 but wasn't feeling the full 2mi) and then 1.5 on the elliptical. Not an intense work out but better than not working out! 

Run: 3.5 mi 
Ellip: 1.5 mi

running goals - Feb.

my goal this month is to run 5-8 miles per week. I started the week off well with 2 mi in 24 min at the gym. I didn't feel tired or like it was that hard, so I clearly need to up the speed on that this week!! 

miles complete : 2
Time: 24 min
Speed: 5.0
