Exercise and Productivity

After a several-day hiatus from running, Curt and I mustered the strength and energy to brave the cold and go for a late evening run last night. With the cold weather and the soon-to-be time change upon us, evening runs are getting harder to do together. So, we did a circuit-type workout last night. Curt ran hard on our 1-mile loop around the corner while I stayed home with Danae. When he returned, I headed out on the same loop. While waiting for the other person to return, the at-home person did our usual sets of sit-ups. Then, when I returned, Curt headed out for a second mile, and vice versa. When we were both home, the leg lift exercises began, along with push-ups (not my favorite). Boy, it's definitely hard to get back into the groove after a few days off. Plus, I've been feeling rather fatigued lately, so that definitely didn't help. (To answer the question that is now gaining strength in your head...no, I am NOT pregnant.) :o)
In the end, it was a much-needed workout that led to better sleep and more productivity the next day. Now THAT'S what I needed!

Speaking of productivity, today is...

Tackle It Tuesday Meme
So far, Danae and I have tackled breakfast and painting, followed by hand, floor, and face-cleaning. :o) Now I think I'll go and organize our television/living room that seems to have blown up with toys and Cheerios. Welcome to life with a two year old!

i was about to ask....are you pregnant? isn't funny if you mention the word "tired" or "exhausted" that's exactly what people think.
you are so motivated.....i get out to walk about 5x a week, but running is so hard for me....i always love the feeling after a good run, but lack the motivation.
