I have to say after getting back into working out full force last week and going hiking two days in a row, my workout today was pretty incredible.
Last week I ran and did the elliptical five days in a row and then went hiking Sunday and Monday with Jason. Every muscle in my legs felt the burn during our hike, especially my calves. There were times that Jason was way ahead of my on the trails and there were other times we were right behind each other.
Instead of taking today off, I pushed through and ran my best mile since starting again after taking more than a month off. I even increased my distance on the elliptical, as well as my time. I know my body needs a rest, but I’m loving all of this activity.
It’s time to get fit again, it’s time to be active all the time.
I love running because it’s a personal challenge. You can go at your own pace and accomplish your own goals. No matter if it was my best time, I still feel incredible when I finish for the simple reason that I laced up my shoes and attempted another run.
I’m so glad running is a part of my life again. I’m liking the elliptical too, to finish off a cardio workout with that, wow, really makes you feel like you did something.
Well my breaks over, now back to some freelance writing and editing.
