today was scheduled as a run day. when i got up though, i was not feeling a run. i was however feeling a bike. i hopped on and did an easy 4 miles on the bike while reading. this was a first. i thought it would be difficult and i would lose my place in my book, but surprisingly i didnt! it made the time pass much quicker too!
i fixed lunch, read some more, and decided that i really needed to get my run in today. if i didn't, it wouldnt happen tomorrow or friday either bc of my swimmers competing in their regional swim meet and me being gone all day.
i was scheduled for 25 minutes. walk 4, run 1. it felt really good. i haven't run in a week and a half so i was a little nervous as to how it would feel to get back on, but surprisingly it was a really good run. so glad i made myself go on and do it. i even pushed up the speed on the last 4 minute run and ended up running through the last one minute walk.
this double workout made me feel a little less guilty for not working out yesterday. hopefully it will ease my conscience for not working out tomorrow too. i think i might be able to get in a bike ride on saturday morning before we leave, just depends.
Any of you read while working out on the treadmill or bike?
