I got up early today on New Year’s Eve and drove to my gym (LA Fitness) as I usually do to find that they weren’t open yet. The gym is opening two hours later for some reason. I’m not sure what that reason is since tomorrow (not today) is a non-working holiday for the US and many other countries, plus we as a planet (for the most part) will celebrate this evening not this morning.
Anyway, now that I’m off my soap box… I drove back home and was a little ticked since I had this plan to do two-a-day workouts all week and I am off to a bad start already. I hope there’s warmer weather for a run or two on Wednesday!
So I decided to whip out the Insanity DVDs and see what kind of damage I could do. First, I did the Cardio Abs video that’s about 16 minutes long. I forgot what kind of workout Shaun T can put you through given 16 minutes. Holy moly my abs burn! Then since I wasn’t sure if LA Fitness would be open later today I doubled up and did the Cardio Recovery video that’s 32+ minutes long to get a little more abdominal work and a good stretch.
I could have hit the showers and called the whole thing a wash allowing myself to be ticked off enough to let it ruin my day…or worse my workout! We’ve all been there right? Something blows our mind, we’re off schedule and we just say to heck with our workout as a result.
Even if I had half the time I would have still done the abdominal work because there’s always time for something…
Happy Training & Happy New Year!
