one day it'll all make sense.

Clearing hurdles

My job is getting in the way of being me lately and it’s frustrating at times. I’ve run into some staff complications and now find myself having to work more hours than intended… Ah
well… Welcome to life as a general manager :-p. Today Ange and I had planned to go for a run in the a.m. Before work, but when I found myself actually still asleep when the alarm went off (totally weird for me!) and Ange was struggling to get in gear too, we made a pact with each other to workout after work. Like, for real. No excuses.

After a long day at work, and a long commute for me, it can be soooooo hard to find the get up and go to get my sweat on. Today, I was committed. Go home a bit earlier than usual. Scribbled down my plan of attack. All I had left to do was wait for my chick to get home so I could get this show on the road. My plan of attack:
Warm-up: 100 jump rope skips
+ 30 second plank hold
+ 20 walking lunges w/weights
+ 5 overhead presses
+ sprint 6 car lengths, walk back
+ 20 bench step-ups
— repeat sequence as many sets as possible for 20 minutes

I was pumped to do is little session, and even more excited cause I love working out with a buddy sometimes. So where does the hurdle come in? Ange got home tired and really not feeling into one of my crazy schemes. I felt like an ass pushing her to come along with me, but we did it 🙂 and at the end of it all, it felt great! Hope I’m not mistaken, but I think we both enjoyed it. Oh ya… completed a total of 7 sets. Amazing how the sets get faster as you get going. Especially when you pair up a couple of competitive nuts. :p
