… because swimming, biking, and running have taken over my life. And I wouldn’t want it any other way. But let’s be real: The running, triathloning, and healthy living communities constantly surround me. After all, I go to practice and then head to work and help others discover this lifestyle too. With that being said, here’s how I spend my time when I’m not working or working out.
When I’m not training …
… I’m drinking coffee.
I am not a verb!
Please don’t tell me this surprises you. Early-morning wake-up calls demand pre-workout java, and there’s no way I can ride the subsequent endorphin high all day. However, I have discovered I can make it to 3:30 p.m. or so before crashing. (Which also means if there are evening plans on the agenda, then I need my second cup around this time.)
… I’m cooking and meal-prepping. Again, this shouldn’t be a surprise. Whenever I have 30-45 minutes at home, it’s likely broccoli, mushrooms, Brussels sprouts, and/or sweet potatoes are roasting.
… I’m watching Downton Abbey and/or Parks and Recreation.
Seriously two of the best TV shows ever. Speaking of, happy Galentine’s Day!
… I’m hanging out with coworkers, a.k.a. work friends.
Whether it’s watching them race, grabbing drinks on the weekend, or simply supporting their non-JRab endeavors, I’m so grateful to call them friends.
And eventually, I will write one of those “day in the life” posts.
How do you balance fitness with other activities? What do you do when you’re not working out?
