Wednesday Triple

Just like Tuesday Triple, but... Wednesday. :)

Today was my 8th work day in a row working out in the morning - I've been to the gym every day, except yesterday when I ran instead. Keeping the streak alive! As much as I love hitting snooze and snuggling up in the blankets for "just a few more minutes", it feels fantastic to start my day with exercise. Most days I'm not doing much - just 30 minutes of moderate cardio (combo of elliptical, bike and/or stair climber), but it's a 30 minutes more than I've ever done in the morning so that counts for something.

Today's triple went as follows:

AM: gym - 30 minutes cardio (elliptical and bike)

LUNCH: ran 8K at steady/moderate pace

PM: gym - 1h Spin class

I did it! I had to push really hard to get through the last 15 minutes of Spin class and I am completely exhausted at this point.

Back to the gym tomorrow morning...
