So this is what happens to me….. I skip a workout, then something happens where I get sick or physically injured and can’t do ANY workouts, and it’s my skipping-workout karma coming back to bite me.
It’s the “ahh, well I only planned on running 2x this week… miiiight as well be Wed/Fri so I’ll just sleep Monday….”
Famous last words.
How often does “stuff come up” during the week, and you end up skipping a lot more than one little Monday morning run….
If you can do it once, you can do it twice.
If you can do it twice, it can become a habit.
Now that can apply towards good and bad actions. Making it a habit to take the stairs and walk in between offices instead of sending emails, those are good habits. Getting fast food because you didn’t bring a healthy lunch, bad habit!
Skipping my Monday morning run and subsequently spraining my big toe in that evenings flag football game, I have been unable to do much of my usual activities. Like running.
The irony is not lost on me.
It has been three days.
RICE: Rest Ice Compression Elevation
Today I go back to my strength & conditioning gym Atomic Athlete and I CANNOT WAIT to get back in the gym. I haven’t done much besides yoga and walking lately and I’m feeling antsy. Janky toe be damned, there are always modifications. I should do some PsycheTruth videos with exercises for people with injuries and arthritis…..
What type of injuries keep you from working out?
