I know my big problem is that I'm a night owl. I tend to stay up until midnight (sometimes later) and get up around 6:00 a.m. I would love to get up early and try to get my workout done. I know it is doable. I did it this summer with Annette. The early morning workout will be my best option if I want to meet my goals for the year.
They say it takes 30 days to create a habit. I need a good habit. My goal is to get up at 5:00 a.m. and work out. Luckily my husband wants to do it too. We are going to fix up our 3rd car garage stall, add some equipment to go along with the nice weight bench already in there. It will take some organizing and paint but it has potential to be nice. I'm excited to take on this project with my honey.
Oh, a friend gave me a Garmin to try out. (310?) It will be interesting to see how I like it. I need to get ready for heart rate training with our Ironfit book. I'm excited to try it. People LOVE their garmins!
To be honest, I have been really disappointed with my 2011 work out season. I have skipped races and have been pretty unmotivated. In the first part of the year, it was b/c I burnt out from Ironman. The second part of the year, I found excuse after excuse not to do things. 2012 has to be better right? I did a 2011 overview and wrote some goals for 2012. I'm sure I'll be expanding on these goals in the next couple of weeks.
