For some reason I've been so exhausted today.
I didn't get to bed until close to midnight last night because JJ had a 7pm game, and had to pick the dogs up from his parents house. He got home around 11:30, and we had to move some furniture back. On the bright side, the carpets look fantastic! I love clean carpet.
So work was normal, but around 4pm, I was crashing hard. I was so close to skipping spinning, but I dug deep and went. I mustered up the energy to push through class, and boy was it hard! I had my endorphin high, and a burst of energy, but now I'm barely able to keep my eyes open!
I love when I feel like I've left it all there in the gym, pushed as hard as I could. For some reason, it's easier for me to do that in classes at the Y and not when I run on the weekends. I feel like I never give it 100% because I'm scared I won't make it to the end.
So whenever you work out, do you feel like you pushed it to 100% every time? Just certain workouts? Or only at races?
I know when I run races, I give it my all... except for the half marathon. I definitely wasn't pushing hard because I wanted to make it to the end, and had I tried to run faster from miles 1-10, I don't think I would have survived 11-13. However, when I run on the weekends, I don't feel like I'm running really hard and fast. I'll start out pushing my speed, but then towards the end I slow up a bit and feel like I'm on cruise control. When I do strength training, I always feel like I gave it my all, and leave with jelly-arms!
