Today is my last day in my current job and I almost overslept this morning. I didn’t even go to bed too late last night… I just couldn’t seem to wake myself up.
Despite almost missing my chance to workout before leaving for work, I ended up having one of the best workouts that I’ve had in weeks. I pushed hard for the entire workout and was really pleased with myself once I finished. I did intervals today… I spent 10 minutes warming up and then changed then increased the resistance every 2 minutes: 16, 17, 18, 19, and then 20. Then I went back and started over again with 2 minutes at 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, and 21. I kept repeating this and adding a higher resistance level at the end. With the last set, I actually worked backwards so that I’d be able to work that set right into my cool down.
I’ll definitely have to remember to repeat this workout next week! It was a lot of fun… I am still not totally clear on what hours I’ll be working in my new job so I am not sure how much more I’ll be able to sleep in or where my newly found free time will go. But, I was thinking that I’d like to spend more time on strength training over the coming months. And, I’d also like to try and get outside running once a week. I’ll probably hold off on making too many changes until I’ve been in my new job for a week or two.
Well, off to finish up those last few remaining things…
