Make the time

I think we all have those mornings when we hit the snooze, re-set the alarm to skip the gym, wish we didn't have to go to work. Sometimes mornings are soooo hard for me to get up & get to the gym. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE working out in the morning. Once I'm up. But getting there can be a challenge. I love feeling like I know my workout is done for the day, feeling healthy to start my day. I have a tough time actually dragging myself to the gym if I skip an AM workout. Today, I definately said "NO WAY" to my 5:07am alarm. However, I did make it to the gym tonight with my roomie! I did 15 min on the expresso bike & did my weight lifting for about 35 min, and boy did it feel good. My body was thanking me.

On the way home, we stopped at the store to pick up things for dinners. If I had a camera, I would have taken a picture because it was FABULOUS...
cod crusted with whole wheat panko breadcrumbs & baked
green beans with olive oil & garlic
diced potatoes roasted in the oven with a little olive oil & lipton onion soup mix

Tonight is Bachelor Pad night on the new TV. Bedtime & a 30 min run tomorrow. I'm hoping I can beat my awful run on saturday, although tomorrow will be an indoor run. Any ideas on getting my running endurance to improve? I've been doing a lot of intervals, and speed climbs. Not too many hills, which I do need to work on. Any suggestions would be much appreciated, thanks!

Nice job!
About the runs- can you move them outside? I find my indoor/outdoor endurance are not comparable. Also, they say it's better to go longer slower than faster so maybe slow down.
I use an interval timer on my iphone- it's an app and you can set it to any distance you want. I find I go faster on intervals knowing I will be walking (and some trainers, experts agree)

Im going to try for weekend outdoor runs.... i just dont want too much high impact with my foot and the treadmill has a little less. Im soo slow already! haha my outdoor was a 13:30ish pace. ridiculous to me, when I think I used to run half marathons at an 11ish pace!

oh well, will get better with time, right?
