This is what happens when I have to wake up at 5am for work and I still try to workout before leaving the apartment.

I really did NOT want to work out this morning. Not because of the workout itself, but because I had to wake up at 5AM this morning for an early shift at my day job. I was SO SLEEPY.

But I did it – DailyBurn True Beginner Day 5 – another Core 1 day. And do you know what? As I did it, I found myself looking forward to Core 2, because I know that workout will actually challenge me.

You read right. I actually WANT more of a workout. Because Core 1 is now TOO EASY.

It’s good to know that, despite my intermittent laziness, my overall strength and stamina is growing.

Which is a good thing, considering my trouble with Black Beauty this morning. When I was leaving for work, I did what I usually do before I take her out. I felt both her tires to make sure they were inflated. They both felt fine. It wasn’t until I was several blocks from my apartment that I realized that her front tire was going flat. As I pedaled harder and harder (trying to get a bike up a hill with a tire that’s going flat is a bitch!), I sought out a gas station to see if I could get the tire filled. Their air machine was broken. I stopped at another gas station. Their air machine was also broken.

GAS STATIONS OF NORTH HOLLYWOOD, FIX YOUR AIR MACHINES! THERE ARE TIRES THAT NEED FILLING!

So, it was a bit more of a slog than usual to bike to work (which I had to continue doing, despite the weak front tire, or I would’ve been super-late), but I did it, and got more of a workout in the process. (So, yay?) But I’ll likely be getting a ride from my boss back home, because she is a nice person and does not want me to walk my bike home.

So, yeah. that there’s my fitness report for the day. Woot. 🙂
