I'm a firm believer that in order to count something as a workout, I must sweat. I always sweat when I run, so it is always a workout. The ellipticle and biking....most of the time. Rec league volleyball....not so much.
I can remember when I was in college meeting up with some friends to play some volleyball one night. I had run beforehand and one of the girls that was playing said that she was counting volleyball as her workout for the day. I know if you play "real" volleyball, it truly is a workout. However, rec league, not really in my mind.
This weekend, I successfully completed 5 workouts, plus three games of rec league volleyball. Saturday's workouts - three of them - all involved running (9 miles total for the day). My middle one also involved lifting and other cardio. Today's workouts - two - involved running 12 miles in the morning and then biking and doing some other cardio work a little later prior to volleyball.
What does this mean? I am exhausted right now and am going to crawl into bed and sleep for a long time - or until 5:37 when my alarm goes off.
Tomorrow I'm also going to the endo....which always makes me nervous. I have constantly reminded myself this weekend that I like my endo and there is nothing to be afraid of. I am hoping to raise my A1C (yes, you just read that correctly). I think I am the only type 1 who hopes this.
Hope your weekend was wonderful!!
