While this weekend was picture perfect, we have had our share of storms enough to offer some solid indoor training. This is what we did on those rainy days:
Over the past two weeks we’ve been absolutely blessed with two days of nasty thunderstorms: rain, lightning, hail, etc. One was a Saturday morning, the other was a Tuesday morning. Both afforded the opportunity to make it to the www.pureaustin.com gym as soon as they opened and make a beeline for the stepmills. Never been on one, don’t know what it is??!! You’re in for a treat. (Thanks, Shan, for the long ago intro!)
The Saturday morning saw the Mrs. and me knocking out a 45 minute stepmill session (Mer 50min), followed by 2 miles of brisk running on the treadmills, another 45 minute stepmill session (Mer an hour), and a final 2 miles on the treadmill. Four bottles of water later, we made it home for lunch!
The Tuesday morning saw my www.roguerunning.com workout being wisely postponed due to lightning, so again I hit the stepmill for 45 minutes followed by 2 x 2 miles on the treadmill. Good, solid work.
Then. finally, I got to run outside and it was glorious. All of it done even before the sun came up. Coffee and breakfast at Whole Foods, and then a return to the gym for some stretching, strength work, and a quick session in the sauna before heading to work…
This was a great reminder of: “No Excuses. Do The Work!”
