It’s a familiar pattern for me. Work gets busy. It’s cold outside. I’m working long hours. I’m tired. I try and get up early but even when I wake up, it’s hard to get out of bed. And I stop exercising.
I’ve blogged before about how if I don’t work out in the morning, I’m much more likely not to bother. I get hungry towards the end of the working day and then by the time I’ve cycled home I’m starving and don’t have the energy to train.
I did Freeletics once last week. And I swam once. I also cycled to work. But I try and do Freeletics four times. Yesterday I reset and said I’d definitely train four times this week. And now Monday has passed and I didn’t this morning.
So I guess this post is just saying: I’m finding it hard to get the motivation at the moment. But I’m also working fucking hard in other areas of my life. So maybe that’s okay.
Maybe two or three times a week is all I can do. Maybe only once. But I’ll commit to doing something. And for the time being, that will be okay.
