I just couldn’t help myself. I had to go old school with this one, but this post doesn’t have anything to do with the unsyncable Milli Vanilli. So what am I Blaming on the Rain? An awesome run, my People! Freaking Euphoria, my friends!
Yesterday, I decided to switch up my work out schedule. I found myself literally rolling out of bed and onto the floor at 6 a.m. My body said, “Hey, chica, I need another hour of sleep, you can do this workout thing after work, you know.” I agreed. I think the main problem with my workout schedule is not that it’s too grueling or tiring, but it’s becoming repetitive. I’m bored with it and although I’m seeing results, I wanted to shift things around a little so I decided to try night-running. Last night I did my 30 Day-Shred, Level 3 session with Jillian Michaels and then grabbed my keys and phone and headed out the door only to find the sky crying. Yep, it was raining. For a split second my instinct was to phone it in and just shower, watch a movie, and do the sleep thang, but the idea of not taking advantage of this precious moment did not sit well with me. I said, “(Bleep) it, I’m going in.” I took off down the road like a mad woman and didn’t look back until the deed was done and oh, what an experience. I miss running in the rain, feeling connected to nature, and feeling focused. I know some of the drivers passing me by thought I was insane, but who cares. I didn’t want rain or anything to stop me from committing to my GetFitB4Thirty goal.
I even had a Gene Kelly moment last night. A little “Singing In the Rain” isn’t too bad for the soul. Now let’s pray that I don’t catch a cold.
