I finally feel somewhat less stressed about ending the semester. I handed in my 5th out of 6 papers due in the past week last night and it felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. I have one final paper, though immensely less stress inducing than the previous 5, due tomorrow and then it’s just studying hard for finals. I have a feeling the next few nights will be spent like this:
Plain white rice doused in soy sauce is surprisingly tasty after nine straight hours of paper writing and studying.
Luckily, last night I was able to relax a little after my night class because I don’t have classes Wednesday and therefore no studying or paper writing was immediately necessary. I took advantage of my day off by sleeping in a little to catch up on some lost z’s.
Despite the hectic schedule, I have managed to get to the gym for some good workouts. No matter how little time I have in the day, I never feel like exercising is a waste of time. Monday I completed a 30 minute interval workout on the elliptical followed by strength and stretching, and yesterday I had a quick but effective 35 minute tempo speed run.
Today’s agenda looks like it will include laundry, a trip to the gym, and of course that final paper… How exciting.
Question: Does your workout schedule seem to change when life gets busier and how do you adjust? Or do you more or less stick to the same routine?
