Preparation is Key

The snow is finally over! Hooray!! Now come the chores of digging out and carefully navigating the roads. Most businesses and offices were closed yesterday ... including the gym. So how did that affect my training? It didn't! :)

The snow started late Tuesday afternoon, so when I found out the gym was closing at 6 pm, I left work a couple hours early so I could get my workout and cardio done before it closed. I had a good workout session, and zipped through my cardio. Wednesday (yesterday) was a cardio-only day, so I stayed at my boyfriend's place and used his treadmill to get both my morning and evening cardio done. Since we were snowed in at his place (much to my chagrin - I missed my kitties at my place!), I stayed there again last night and did my cardio on his treadmill again this morning. The gym is closing at 6 pm again today, so we're gonna head there in a little while to get my workout and cardio done early. Thank goodness for his treadmill - it literally saved my training schedule!!

How did being snowed in affect my diet? It didn't! :) Because I planned ahead. Jerry picked up food for me on Tuesday morning just so we could make sure I had enough to get me through a couple days. We cooked some food yesterday morning, so I had plenty of food for all my meals yesterday and a couple today.

I'm finally back at home this afternoon (kitties were very happy to see me!), and right on track with my training.

What's the whole point of my ramblings? If you prepare and plan, you won't be thrown off track by unexpected events. Preparation is key.

What if Jerry didn't have a treadmill? I would've put my boots on, bundled up, and trekked around in the snow for an hour. Prolly not the smartest thing to do, but the most important show of my career thus far is right around the corner, and I'm willing to do what I need to do in order to bring my best conditioning to the stage.
