After taking yesterday off, I was determined to set a new record for myself at the gym.
Since arriving in Tennessee I have included more cardio in my workout. I am now riding the bike for 60 minutes, as well as running a mile.
With Jason and I hiking trails that are a little more difficult than the flatlands of Florida, I am pushing my body into better shape.
Today after doing more than 15 miles on the bike, I increased my run speed and ran my second fastest time. My body feels incredible … I can feel every muscle I worked.
I want to eventually increase my running miles again, but taking three weeks off I am taking it a little slow. I also want to find a trail I can run outside, which will only get me into shape faster.
I absolutely love the feeling, that natural high, I get after a workout. It puts me in a wonderful mood for the rest of the day.
This is another reason I run, it gives me the opportunity to reflect on my life, which I have to say is pretty incredible!
