So I've been finding new ways to try and make exercise more appealing. Today's trick was the 'challenge of the 5s'. I decided that the only way to get my exercise done today was to get it over with quickly. So here's what I did:
- Cycle to the Park as fast as I could = 5 miles
- Run around the Park as fast as I could = 5 miles
- Cycle home as fast as I could (or as fast as traffic would allow me to by this time) = 5 miles
Result = 90 minutes of exercise focusing on the clock and not the rain.
Job done - time to stay dry for the rest of the day.
Moral of the story. If there's something putting you off exercising today, find an easy way to distract yourself and then just get on with it.
