Work and Working Out

I had a pretty good workout at Crossfit tonight, and I'll post more details about it with numbers and stats on Saturday, along with the rest of my exercises from this week.

I told one of my coaches that I'm planning to run a 10K in August, and he gave me two exercises that'll help me strengthen my hamstrings. They're the kind of exercise that seem so simple at first glance: "Oh, all I need to do is just lay down, straighten out my legs, and then lift up! That's easy!" But of course, it's never quite that easy. The hamstring exercises are definitely pushing me out of my comfort zone, but that's exactly what I need if I want to do this training the right way.

Before going to Crossfit, I spent a few hours this morning at school, meeting with some other teachers who are part of our school's technology committee. Believe me, I'm in no rush for the new school year to begin, but going back today got me thinking about my work/life balance again. I've been able to increase my physical activity over the past couple of weeks because I haven't had to work, and as much as I want to keep this momentum going through the fall, I'm afraid that once school begins again, I'll end up putting my workouts on the back burner.

How do you balance work and working out?
