Seriously. I was a sweaty, smelly, exhausted mess after this, but I NEEDED this workout. Like, whoa.
I was grumpy (needlessly)
I was annoyed (again, for no real reason).
I was snippy (I hate when I get that way, especially for no real reason).
I was energized.
I was renewed.
I felt like me again.
…just a sweatier, smellier, more exhausted version. 😉
So my advice to you — if you’re ever whacked by the grumpy stick out of the blue like I was last night: run intervals. Preferably like the ones I did last night (a throwback from last winter’s stash of interval runs).
I say it again: Intervals: FTW!
(that’s all I got today, nothing more profound than that lol)
OOOH. I hear you telling me to GO RUN THE GRUMPS OFF!!!
Go run, lift, kick, punch the grumps off in whatever shape or form that movement takes. Just sweat. It always works. Always.
The hardest thing is actually getting my butt off the couch when I’m grumpy. But when I do I feel great!!!!!!!!!
Exactly. Scott literally had to ‘tough love’ me off my butt to get on the treadmill. He knew it would make me feel better even though all I wanted to do was crawl into a hole and stay there for awhile. haha. I love sweat!!
My workouts always make me feel great! 🙂
intervals make me feel bad ass 😉 Nicely done sis!
I haven’t done them in SO LONG that it felt good to sweat that way — SO badass 😉
Wacked by the grumpy stick, lol. The first few min of a workout when you are not in the mood blow, but I couldn’t agree more that it’s the best way to get back in the groove. Intervals are the best kind of pain:)
Seriously, grumpy stick whacks hurt!! LOL.
You’re right, the first few minutes of my run the other night were not fun but once I started to sweat, I got really into the workout and felt about a million times better!
Nice work and glad the intervals did the trick!
I am too 🙂
haha, i can relate. The snippy part. It’s just not US. Intervals save the day!
Right?? Snippy is NOT us at all. I was so annoyed with myself. Intervals FTW 😉
Ok, I will 🙂
Seriously though, I know exactly what you mean—I did a spinning class that was all intervals and I felt euphoric after. My grouchiness went right out the window!
so true! If you don’t have anything to do at teh gym.. get on the treadmill and go go go! they are the best workouts and they make time go by so fast because you are always changing them up!
Sometimes the only thing that will fix a case of the grumpies is an asskicking run
africkinmen to that sista!
I’m an interval girl all the way! They always make me feel great. I did my first interval run on Wednesday and it felt amazing…it’s like my version of crack! Makes me feel so good! I’m so glad you felt better my friend!
YES, it IS like crack!! Intervals are the best!
