The Determinator

About 3-4 times a year I have a week where I am working longer hours and am on my feet running around helping to put on a conference.

Those days are actually super fun for me, but the long hours (12+) make it hard to want to workout afterwards, or even think about getting your training run in.

But alas, I dubbed myself The Determinator and knew with that title it could be done.


Because I was determined to do it all.

So the rock star that I am, worked a 12 hour day, played a few rounds of Bunco with the ladies, and then proceeded to run a 5k at the gym.

Yeah so, it was around 11pm when I arrived home.


It was still the sweetest feeling of victory. πŸ™‚

And I was super proud of the fact that I worked up a sweat!


And I even foam rolled the heck out of my legs at the gym before I left. I don’t own one, so I try to roll at the gym if I can.

Needless to say, I had the best sleep I’ve had in a loooooooong time.

It just goes to show me, that there are 24 useable hours in every day. LOL – Okay that line is from my favorite movie. Any guesses?

I should add in there, that some of those unusable hours are for sleeping. πŸ™‚

Okay Empire Records fans, I hope you got that reference. πŸ™‚


When do you prefer to run? Early morning, late at night?

If I could run around 3 pm every day, I would be the happiest girl in the world. But that is usually not the case due to my job, so I run after work like most of the world and fight for my treadmill.

Okay, off to the conference. Your regularly scheduled Wedding Wednesday Series will resume next week.

  1. Wow Linzi, you definitely are the determinator! I’m sure I would never run after such a long day of work.

    I prefer to run in the morning, especially in Summer when it’s sometimes too hot to run after work. But it depends on the distance I have to run. On Wednesday I have to do longer runs and I do those after work but before dinner. The shorter ones I do early in the morning before work.

  2. i still have not listened to your Vlog. i dont have sound on my comp at work, so i have to do it at home, but by the time i get in, workout, make dinner and eat it, i am exhausted. but will do it soon.

    yay for u,linzi. u r a true rock star. i prefer to wake up at 5am and workout instead of working out at night. i am very proud of ur gym time.

    have a great conference!

  3. You are a rockstar for hitting the treadmill so late after a long day! WAY TO GO!

    I LOOOOOOOOOOVE Empire Records! That reminds me, I haven’t watched it in AGES!

  4. Yay! I love hearing this, because when I have busy days, I just want to crash. I need a super cool name like that.

    I prefer to run in the am. But I take what I can get πŸ˜‰
