When I was younger, I thought that Daylight Savings lasted all year. When we turned the clocks back in the fall and got an extra hour of sleep, I thought that we got an extra hour of sleep every night until we had to spring ahead… then we got one less hour in the day.
It was a total “duh” moment when I grew up and realized that a day was 24 hours long, no matter whether we sprung ahead or fell back. Regardless of daylight savings, we all have the same amount of time.
I’m constantly amazed when other triathletes like SwimBikeMom and IronRogue consistently get in killer workouts while juggling full-time jobs, kids and a million other things. There are no kids over here at Team TwoTri yet, however we always seem to struggle to “find time” to get our workouts in.
So what’s the secret? It’s quite simple actually.
In other words… Just Do It.
Don’t overanalyze it or waste time wondering how you’re going to find time to workout. Just Do It. Wake up earlier, stay up later, fit your workout in during your lunch break, keep your gym bag in the car, buy a new pair of sneakers, try a new class at the gym, sign up for a triathlon… do whatever it takes. The possibilities are endless.
The good news is that although we may not get an extra hour in the day today, Daylight Savings means more sun and warmer weather (finally!), and those things make taking action just a bit easier.
Don’t just dream it. Do it!
