I can't remember the last time I exercised five days in a row. I'm terribly surprised that I've managed to stick to my routine this long. And after five days at the gym I feel like I should earn an achievement or something.
Today I hit the treadmill again racking up very similar stats to Wednesday. 2.46 miles, 232 calories over 35 minutes.
Today, again, seemed like an easy day to skip out on. I started my morning with an interview for work. I spent thirty minutes grilling J. Allen Brack from Blizzard on the history of Warcraft (see a future issue of GamePro for the results of my interview).
As soon as I hung up the phone a couple of friends came over to play board games. We pushed bits around until six o'clock, leaving me only two hours to hit the gym before my scheduled get together with my guildies.
I planned ahead a little and made sure to eat a good lunch so that I wasn't too hungry to work out when the evening rolled around. That way, when the board games were put away I could walk my friends out the door and haul ass to the gym.
The run was good. Only a little bit of complaint from my left shin at the beginning of the run. I listened to Doomriders while I ran, which kept me pumped and angry.
I made it home with a half hour to spare, washed my face and logged into WoW. Our group ran Drak'Tharon one last time (finally finishing the quest where you-know-who shows up at the end) and ported back to Dalaran to do the Violet Hold instance. It's amazing how much you can get done in two hours now. Remember when instances took an entire evening? I love that you get in and out of two in just as much time.
