This was a hodgepodge of walking, indoor cardio exercise, landscaping and on the very last day….A RUN!!!! It was a test run – to see how my foot would handle it. I was like a rearing, wild thoroughbred at the gate – ready for take-off… It was raining, but that added to the adrenaline of being back out, running again!! It was difficult to stop, but I had to honor my foot.
Michael and I truly enjoy exercising together to Body Project’s low-impact, high cardio videos! Click here to try one!! The videos are free – on YouTube, and are intense workouts!! Especially the standing abdominal and squat sets!!!
It has been a LONG two months of not running. Running is the one activity where I truly face myself – push myself – and overcome my mind that wants to stop running, or my body that wants to stop (when my physical health isn’t an issue) from fatigue. I push through the thoughts and fatigue, to strive towards my goal!
Starting back, I’m going to pace myself. I’ll start with a minimum 1km morning run, every second day, adding a bit more distance each time. I’m so excited!!!
