A wrench in the plan
See, we had a nice hike on the schedule and now we couldn't do it because we needed to be within 20-30 minutes of being back home due to the impending 5 HOUR ordeal we were going to have to endure. So I strapped on the heart rate monitor and said "let's walk the neighborhood!" I didn't need to burn much more for the week but I wanted at least 400 calories and that's what I got. I'm glad we got to fit that in because they were at the house from 6pm to 11pm. The guys were all nice enough...all four of them when all was said and done, but there was no way in Hell I was going to let this situation dictate whether or not I got scheduled exercise. If I had to start at 11pm with the tension migraine I developed, so be it. It was on the schedule, it was getting done.
When an unexpected situation pops up before you are able to get your workout in, how do you handle it? Do you skip it altogether, make it up later in the week or find a way to fit it in no matter what?
