I did make it to the gym today with some intricate planning and some trickey wardrobe magic.
Treadmill progress: one minute walking then running intervals for ten minutes. After the first minute of running my leg started hurting and then got kind of gimpy but i did the whole ten minutes that way. Yay! It will be good to take a few days off and just bike around for a change.
Potential ways to talk myself out of keeping this up: I will reinjure myself.
Solution: Be brutally honest with myself. Go slow, make slow increases. Baby steps! (litterally.) I don't have enough time.
Solution: Make this a top priority. If I absolutely can't make it to the gym, do fast sprints on the bike. At least maintain on the weekends.I'm too tired.
Solution: I'm always tired. No excuse. Remind myself that running increases energy. Don't be afraid to drink coffee in the afternoon. Don't stay up late to hang out with you-know-who.
Good music for the treadmill today:

PS: think about adding more weight to lateral raises.
