“Wow. I really regret that workout.” – said no one ever
Here’s the thing. I’m allergic to working out.
No really. I break out in a sweat, I get red in the face, I can’t breathe…it’s a mess.
But sometimes you just have to push through it. Like today, for example. I usually go down to the gym in our office, do a half hour on the elliptical and then use the app Sworkit to get in some strength training. I prefer the elliptical because it’s easier on my ankles – I know, I sound like an old woman. 25 and weak ankles. And Sworkit is awesome. It’s a circuit training app that lets you do five, ten minutes, etc.
But today I got down there and just couldn’t get into the cardio. It probably didn’t help that a version of “Ring My Bell” that was about 10,000 minutes long came on. Okay, more like 10, but it felt like. Lots of cow bell. I decided to do 15 minutes of yoga from Sworkit instead (another awesome feature of the app!).
And while I don’t feel as awesome as I usually do after a full half hour of cardio, I still got 15 minutes in and rocked it.
So, moral of the story. Push through it and love it.
