The $722 Haircut

Last night Drew asked me if I was going to go to the gym today or not. I told him that he should wake me up and then we could go together. When it came down to it this morning, he woke up super early and I said I'd just sleep for a couple more minutes. He claims that he's "waking up" while he's putzing around, but I just can't understand it. I wake up, grab a bar to eat, throw on some clothes and shoes and go. What else is there to do for 20 or 25 minutes?

Anyway, he came back upstairs (I was still asleep) and said that he was off to the gym and that he'd see me there. Except that I didn't wake up. Instead I had a dream about having a $722 haircut (although I woke up before I got to see the final result, so it was a bit disappointing!).

I haven't been feeling too bad about not going to the gym every day because that's not the plan I have set-up for myself right now. According to the half-marathon plan, I only have to run 4 days a week and that's what I've been doing. Except that pretty soon I'm going to have to start triathlon training and that will most likely be 6 days a week, so I think I need to start doing something on some of my off days now.

So, I'm going to proclaim it here in writing that in February I'm going to try to be more proactive on pre-triathlon training and actually working out the plan I'm going to be using. I'm going to give myself the rest of January to be a little bit lazier and then in February I'm really going to try to get back into the groove of 6 workout days a week. Even if it's just yoga or the spin bike at the gym, I think it'll be good just to have that mentality. And I'm pretty sure the cross training never really hurt anyone.

Oh, and I guess I have one more goal that has been hanging over my head. I (embarrassingly) never finished my 12 Week Weight Lifting Plan. I did 11 of the 12 weeks and that was it. So, as a result, I'd like to finish that up, just to say that I did it. Even though it wasn't according to plan, that seems to be how life goes sometimes.

  1. Glad I'm not the only one doing fewer workouts right now! Right now I'm not planning to start serious cycling or swimming till April, but I'm beginning to think I should work it in sooner. It's hard to fit it all into the day sometimes!
