While working from home gives me the chance to rearrange my day as needed, it also means my day has more opportunities to get away from me. I have the ability to make my own hours, work early in the morning, late at night and on the weekends if needed. I still try to work out in the morning, like I did when I worked in an office but on days like yesterday when I have a lot of work to do and deadlines to meet, I push my workout to the side. I tell myself I can do it later and sometimes later never comes. Yesterday I worked hard all morning and into the early afternoon to meet a deadline. When I was finished I felt tired, even though I had sat at my desk all day. I knew what I needed was a good workout.
Since it was later in the afternoon, and to hot for running, I pulled on the spandex and went for an hour long ride. I did a 30 minute out and back ride and covered 16 miles in 1 hour and 2 minutes. My pace was 15.6 MPH and it felt so great to get my body moving.
