Have you picked that working out during rainy days or cold weather is just NOT fun. LAZY kicks in hard. For those who don’t know, the previous week was a hectically rainy one- in Johannesburg and most parts in South Africa.
Having a rainy week will mess up my training week if I don’t apply certain “systems” to stay motivated. All I think off was hot chocolate, blankets and a good series. OH, even vetkoeks crosses my mind a couple of times!
So like, LOL I just want to laugh at myself for a minute. I was a splashing victim last week, not once but TWICE. I bet you drivers splash people on purpose.
LIKE DUDE!!! Don’t you see the pool of water where you are driving???
The first incident happened on Monday, I was by the entrance of the apartment.
SPLASH!!!! (That’s all I heard)
My eyes became teary, my hair was dripping…such an embarrassing moment
Tuesday was the second incident, I was doing my LISS (low intensity steady state cardio) training, for LISS I take a 30-45-minute walk outside.
I just stood there, not embarrassed at all. Just laughed!!
Now back to rainy workouts
Like I said, I keep myself going during rainy days by applying certain systems. Here are the 3 basic systems I apply :
- I wear the right gear for the weather- socks, beanie, gloves- the lot. Especially for LISS days-where I’ll be outdoors. I basically layer up as much as I can and have an umbrella ready.
- I refresh my memory on my fitness goals- I do this every time when I feel like making a lame excuse to not workout
- I stick to working out in the mornings before work, with having so many things to do in the evenings I just know I will not work out should I amend my training schedule to the evenings.
So, what do you do to overcome the lazy that comes with working out during rainy days?
