What does a week off do to you ?

I have not exercised (besides snow tubing) since thursday of last week. I don't feel so bad about it b/c it was planned. I wanted to enjoy vacation and not feel the pressure of putting a run, bike or swim in. Tomorrow however it is back to the gym and I have to start off with a bang. I have my tri class at 6.30am. I don't even want to think about how much I will HATE getting up in the dark with the freezing cold and all the darn snow to jump in the pool. But I will do it. I want to get back to it, my body needs it, my head needs it.

I usually dread getting back into workout after some time away b/c I feel like I can't go hard and get tired easily BUT in the same breath there are plenty of times when I get back to it and feel super duper. The point is, I am not going to FEAR it, and I am not going to take it easy. I am going to push the same as if I had been in the gym everyday.

How do you deal with the time off ?


  1. The hard part is getting out the door. After that, it's cake...

  2. I think once you're there tomorrow am, you're gonna feel pretty excited about getting back into it. so when you hit the alarm at 6am tomorrow, know it'll feel good once you're up and there;-)

  3. Time off? What's that? I hate my alarm clock, but once I'm up I'm ok. Seriously, it's always hard getting started, but I'd say that is true of anything, not just training.

    Besides, early morning and training is the only time I get to be alone! (oh, and the shower)

  4. I have a hard time getting back into the swing of things after 2 days in a row of no working out... but I just plan to do something easy... easing back into things. :)


what are you triing
