Peer Pressure Works

Posted Jul 14 2010 7:42pm

My morning workout didn’t happen this morning. After staying up until 12:15am doing work last night I needed every bit of sleep possible.

Therefore, the snooze button may have been hit four times this morning and my lazy butt didn’t get out of bed until 7:30. It was glorious! Do you ever find that some days your body is just screaming for an extra hour of sleep?

But, Bo and I have really mastered the team work thing lately when it comes to working out. We try to both do either morning or evening. That way, at 5am there is someone to yank you out of bed or at 7pm there is a motivating voice telling you to get to the gym instead of coming home and being a couch warrior.

Tonight the plan worked! I called Bo at 7 telling him I had a headache and was tired. All I wanted was 30 Rock and a date with the sofa. He said he’d meet me at the gym for a 30 minute workout. Peer pressuring for the gym works. There was no way I was going to come home while he pounded out a great workout.

Workout: 3.2 miles on the treadmill (6.2 pace)

10 minutes of abs and back strength workout

5 minutes of stretching and foam rolling

Do you have an accountability partner who helps you get in that workout?
