Catch Up

I just keep falling further and further behind...  I feel like my favorite swimming drill, like I'm always playing "catch up."

Due to being overly tired and having a slight sore throat, today is a rest day (which is why I'm able to type this up at a "normal" hour).  As you saw in one of my previous blogs, my mornings are essentially wake up, gym, breakfast, go to work.  Then I don't get back until 9:30, I go back to the gym, make dinner, and sleep.  I decided to double up one of my workouts recently - I ran a 5k and then jumped in the pool - and I'm still trying to regain my energy loss. haha  Working outdoors 6+ hours a day can really make things interesting.

Aaaaaand as soon as I think I have a morning to stay home, catch up on the blog, relax, and what not, I get a call and I have to head out early for an errand.  haha  Oh life!

Here's a recap on my workouts this week.

I've got a few friends who have recently showed interest in coming to workout with me, mostly people who would like to go to the gym but simply have no done it in awhile.  So I'm excited to be able to help them get back into it.  Hopefully at least one of them will find something worth while to stick to. 

Until next time (hopefully soon), stay fit!  Stay healthy!
