I got up at 3:15 a.m. and headed out to the gym. Today was my cardio day, so I got on the treadmill and cranked out a nice HIIT session with 1 minute intervals. I did that for 30 minutes and then went to work. I had a jam packed morning followed by a meeting filled afternoon.
After my afternoon meeting, I headed to the gym for HIIT session #2 for the day. It felt great to be consistent and get to the gym as scheduled. I had alot of energy during the workouts. I am looking forward to more deadlifting tomorrow, but for today, the cardio work will suffice.
I spent some time in the car today listening to the new Led Zeppelin station on XM and thinking about what it means to be consistent. I am not talking about the obvious meanings, I'm talking about the deeper meanings. Consistency means so many different things. The following are some quotations I found on the matter:
“A consistent man believes in destiny, a capricious man in chance.” — Benjamin Disraeli
“Without consistency there is no moral strength.” — Owen
To me, being consistent means doing things regularly. It means not missing a workout as best you can. It means working hard constantly. Consistency is what brings you to the gym to do your workouts.
