Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning workouts = DEMOLISHED.
When I moved to a new place this past weekend I lost my free apartment gym, and my ability to do HIIT workouts in my room (because I’m on the third floor and my building is 1,000 years old). I was left with only one choice: RUN. (Or try to)
So, I did! And have been.
I’m loving my new morning routine. Like, a lot. I feel like I have a new life. This apartment has already brought me so much joy. Here’s what’s been going down in the new casa de runnaroundd!
6AM: Get jolted awake by my alarm and snooze it for 10 more minutes.
6:10: Scroll through Insta, eventually get up and dressed.
6:25ish: Out the door (hopefully). Start out walking for a bit. Jam to Backstreet Boys.
6:50: Pass old teammates running on Bayshore. Cry a little.
7:00ish: Run/walk to the stairs in downtown and run up and down them a few times. Throw some tricep dips in there for fun, maybe a few high knees.
7:35ish: Get home. Take pictures of my stupid outfit. Sweat everywhere. Drink all the fluids and suck on ice cubes. Florida humidity SUCKS. Lay on my floor, plank for five minutes (I’m getting good!), shower, watch the news (now that I have cable !!!!), post an insta pic because I’m damn proud of myself for getting out there and because MANATEES.
8:00: Put together breakfast (I’m on an eggs/spinach/salsa bender), pack lunch and snacks for the day. Pick out clothes that are still in suitcases and boxes. Oops. Pretend like I have a makeup routine. Give up after mascara.
8:20: Head to work.
8:35-5:30PM: Meetings. Get ish done. Melt brain.
6:00: Get home (sometimes earlier, sometimes later). Throw on gym clothes and head out to Bayshore for another walk/run in the gorgeous sunshine.
6-7something: Use the little gym areas on Bayshore to do burpees and sit-ups and push-ups. People stare. I sweat. Think how much I love working out outside.
7:30-9:30ish: Shower, eat dinner while making it because I’m an animal, slather this nut butter on everything and devour, veg in front of the TV (my favorite), finish up some more work. Read in bed until I fall asleep.
It’s not perfect, but so far it’s working out really well. And I can’t wait to rot my brain with more TV tonight.
Happy workout-ing. What was yours today (or what’s it going to be later)? What part of your day do you look forward to the most?
