Ever have one of those days…

…where you feel like you could workout all day?

Uh yeah, me neither. πŸ˜‰

But seriously, I’m having one of those days where I’d love to just spend it working out more and more and more. Call it early-Cathe RT fever, or call it antsy-pants after sitting in my office all day glued to my desk.

Whatever “it” is (and I have a few sneaking suspicions!), I am definitely antsy, feeling like I have loads of energy to burn off and no outlet to do so. I already did a whammy of a workout this morning – went back to Power today (for a little change of pace, plus with the long weekend, my time to fit in weight training ala STS was a little bit limited – only so many days in the week, right?) followed by Ride. That back-to-back combo is a doozy, and a total sweat-fest which I LOVED every minute of.

I’ve obviously more than done my workout for the day – though I’ve been neglecting those abs again – must get back on track there asap. So why the extra energy lurking? I’m thinking after spending MOST of the weekend outside, by the lake, in the lake, running in the early-AM cool before the heat settled in for the day, etc.,Β  and being chained to my desk has been a little bit shocking, in a way,Β  after feeling so “free” all weekend. The good news is that the work week is FLYING by (not necessarily a good thing with lots of deadlines looming!) and I’ll soon be outside enjoying the summer air once again. And – as my hubby so kindly pointed out last night, just seven working days until I’m back in Maine on vacation for the week!

Which brings me to my next (rambling) point – I’d LOVE a few guest blogger volunteers for the week I’ll be on vacation (week of July 19). Ideally, I’m thinking a handful of guest posts for that week will keep things chugging along nicely in my absence (no Internet whatsoever at the camp in Maine!) so if you’d like to guest blog for me, leave me a comment or shoot me an email. I’d love to have ya!

I have lots of other bloggy thoughts stored up from my weekend in Maine (mostly some revelations around running and body image – not necessarily interrelated, per se) which I’ll share with you tomorrow. For now, I leave you with a few rambles and a request for guest bloggers. That’s all I got. πŸ˜‰

  1. Glad someone is a bundle of energy. LOL. Those hill repeats this morning killed my legs. Get those abs done you nut! Sounds like the Maine trip has given you much-needed boost of happiness and energy. Such a great feeling isn’t it.

    • YES, Maine was exactly what the doctor ordered…but now I’m an addict and want more, more, MORE!!!

      PS. Can you puhleeeze send me some abs motivation?? I don’t know why it is SO hard for me to just buckle down and do them, I wish I had YOUR abs…total body envy going on over here, don’t mind me πŸ˜‰

      • Maybe you need some different ab workouts that don’t seem so much like work? I found a standing ab workout that was fun from OnDemand so maybe something like that or something like hip hop abs even? I really don’t mind doing ab work at all. It’s never bothered me. I’d rather do abs all day over pushups!

  2. the title and first line totally sucked me in! …then you fooled me! LOL Actually, the last time I felt like “one of those days” was last Thanksgiving – 3 hrs at the gym before the big meal! Have fun on vacay – I’m off for one myself this Friday!

  3. Hi Jessica, would love to send you a guest post in the week you’re off (jealous!!). How about describing my favourite running trail in Munich/Germany and inviting others to describe their’s? Could be great and kind of exotic to see where people from all around the world are running. What do you say? PS: Maine looks like paradise!!

  4. Oh my gosh….MAINE! I want to go there SO badly. My parents went a few years ago and their pictures are just breathtaking. Promise to post lots of pics?!

    I’ll actually be on vacation that week, too! Hopefully we’ll both come back fully recharged and refreshed. Although I know both of us will miss our jobs so much, won’t we? (COUGH COUGH) πŸ˜‰

    • Anytime you wanna come to the lake in Maine for a visit, you’re more than welcome πŸ˜‰ Bummer that you won’t be around for a guest post, I was hoping for one from you!!

      LOL re: *cough cough* – no comment??
