The month of August was not my best month for working out. Vacation and very busy work weeks took their toll on my gym routine. I got in a grand total of four runs, and two of them were 20-minute sessions on the treadmill at the hotel fitness center this weekend. This week I also did a run-and-walk that was disappointing because my stamina seemed lacking, and I did a workout on the elliptical one day last week when I didn't have earphones for my iPod.
My lack of activity is showing. I feel like my middle is expanding, something that seems to occur when I don't have enough running to just shake and jiggle it all away. I'm going to need the discipline to get in as many workouts as I can while I have the chance, before Noel leaves for Toronto after Labor Day. Unfortunately, my schedule doesn't get any easier to deal with; working around Noel's and my travel will be very difficult, since the flexibility of my pre- and post-work hours disappears. If I become more airship-like in the next month, though, I have only myself to blame.
