It is one of those “I don’t want to write” mornings where I am just sitting here staring at my computer screen and trying to gather my thoughts to write a post. Every two minutes I run out to the garage to do another set of leg exercises then return to my blank mind sitting at the computer. It feels as if it’s going to be one of those “Low Energy” days but that could change of course at any time. The one thing I have learned about low energy days is that if I simply accept it and go with it I am better off. It could be my body or my mind that is calling for a slowdown period and that is OK.
I will take my low energy self through this morning strength training routine at a comfortable pace and actually take comfort in the fact that I can do this. There is no emergency and I have plenty of time to workout this morning so I am going to take this opportunity to actually enjoy LEG day.
I could have just as easily stayed in bed this morning and slept until it was time to go to work, but instead I made the effort to get up and workout. Sometimes it seams that I make the best gains on lazy days like today so I will give each routine I do the best I have to give. As rest comes between the sets while I am working I will work hard and explode with each rep in each set I do. The difference today is that I am taking longer than just 2 minutes between reps.
I predict that my work day will pretty much feel the same as this morning workout routine. The summer sun will shine down with it’s seasonal intensity and I will feel the distinct desire to be at the beach or even under the Boardwalk. My day will go by the same way my workout did this morning as I drive from job to job giving particular attention to each. I will complete each job to the best of my ability then simply drive away to the next one and do the same. Before you know it the day will end then “Hello 3 Day Weekend”!
