From Workout to Work

By Hblack79

Good Morning friends!  I went to Java Jog this morning for the second time in a row and it’s quickly becoming a highlight of my week!  I love the burst of energy I get from a good morning run, running with others keeps me motivated to push myself farther than I would if I ran alone, and the cup of free coffee afterwards is just the cherry on top!

I have to be at work at 7:30am each morning and the jog is at 6:30am.  As you can imagine, that doesn’t give me much time to freshen up before work and when I live on the other side of town, well there is no hope for a shower.  I’ve compiled various items that are absolutely necessary when going from a workout to work.  It’s proven to work for myself and I remain fresh throughout the day even though I’m unable to get a good shower after being gross & sweaty.  Luckily, my work is fairly close to the run, so I get to work a few minutes before everyone else and I can change & freshen up in the bathroom.


1 // Deodorant

2 // Body Wipes

3 // Razor, just in case (not a necessity)

4 // bobby pins (I don’t typically wear my hair down on this day, bobby pins help tame the mess)

5 // Face Wipes

6 // Baby Powder (helps absorb the sweat quicker & gives you a fresh feeling)

7 // Dry Shampoo (helps eliminate the appearance of greasy/sweaty hair)

8 // Make Up Bag

9 // Body Mist


I was quickly able to wipe off, throw some dry shampoo in my hair and toss it in a bun, change into my dress for the day, apply some lotion & a touch of makeup and be on my way.  I may not want to workout before work and get ready in the bathroom every day, but this routine makes it easy to do a couple times a week if necessary.  The coffee at Sneaky Beans was extremely hot when I got it to.  By the time I was dressed and at my desk to start work, it was the perfect temperature for drinking!  I’m looking forward to this being a weekly part of my schedule!



Questions of the Day:

  • Do you have any morning group runs in your area that you participate in?
  • What are your gym bag essentials?  What did I leave off that you use on the regular?
