A week ago, I decided to freeze my membership at Snap Fitness until the end of October, and I have to say it was a great idea. I got into a funk and wasn’t going as much as I liked, so needless to say it was time to change my exercise routine up.
Why not enjoy exercising outdoors while the weather is still nice?
I wake up every morning eager to tie my running shoes and hit the path. My favorite part is hearing how excited Lucy gets when we park in the parking lot of the Greenbelt. I can never gather everything fast enough. It warms my heart that Lucy becomes that excited.
Lucy, my puppy and I, went running on the Kingsport Greenbelt 5 days this week for a total of 10.1 miles. (We also walked and hiked 5+ miles with Jason this week. Lucy and I only took one day off!! I have to admit I feel amazing!!)
Although we take the same route everyday, I absolutly love running outdoors instead of on a treadmill.
Whenever I ran at the gym I would have my earphones in listening to music. When Lucy and I go for a run, the music is never turned on. My music is the outdoors and the exchange of good morning to those who pass us. I really enjoy listening to the sounds of nature.
I am beyond proud of Lucy and I! I absolutely love having this little 8 – month old puppy as an exercise budy!
Her stamina amazes me and her pace keeps me going while my legs start to get tired. The best part is she makes everyone smile as we pass them by.
10.1 miles, yippy!
My goal is to add another 2 miles next week to our total. I love setting exercise goals and surpassing them. Incredible feeling.
