4:30 am: Wake up & head to the gym (either my apartment gym if I'm just running or the gym I teach at, Lifestyle Family Fitness, if I'm cross-training or lifting)
4:50 am-6:15 am: Run & workout
6:15 am: Back home getting ready for work
7:30 am: Work day begins (unless it's my week to go to the local fire station to put the firefighters through a workout in which case I don't have to be there until 8:30am....which means a longer workout!)
8:00 am-12:30 pm: Fitness testing firefighters & police officers; fitness testing includes body composition, VO2max testing on the treadmill with EKG interpretation, sit & reach, sit ups, chest press, and leg press
1:30-4:00 pm: Finishing out the work day with hopefully more fitness testing but some afternoons can be slow so it consists of making workouts for the firefighters I train (or sometimes workouts for myself), working on any projects or presentations we have coming up, making reminder appointment phone calls....or even reading a book, which is how I read so many books
4:00-5:30pm: On my way home from work, I'm usually running some sort of errand whether it's to the grocery store, the library to pick up books I have on reserve, or to waste lots of money at Target
5:30-6:30pm: Checking email, reading other blogs, making & eating dinner
6:30-9:30pm: Typically spent watching a couple of the many tv shows I have dvr'ed (I hate commercials and refuse to watch shows live, unless it's a sporting event), reading, getting stuff ready for the next day and talking to Todd before heading to bed
If Todd & I are hanging out during the week, my evening will be slightly altered depending on what we have planned (movies, going out to dinner, indoor rock climbing, hanging out with friends, wine tastings, etc). We usually try to eat dinner together though if we are hanging out.
And there you have it, the exciting life of an Exercise Physiologist!
