But when I started training for a triathlon this summer, I was forced into two-a-day workouts, which meant that I needed to get to the gym before work. After much trial-and-error, I settled into a system that actually makes me look forward to mornings workouts (usually), and collected a few items that makes it easier for me to simply grab my gym bag and go. For those of us trying to get back into an exercise routine for the new year (and stick to it this time!), I hope these are helpful.
All of my fun rhyme/cultural reference options for this post title were lame.
