And obviously we all know how this turned out...
It was great! It was 3 miles of jogging (with a few walks here and there while I found another good running song) and I was so proud of myself after. Saturday my legs were sore and it made me even happier that I pushed myself and could feel the results of that. I was back to the stationary bike yesterday but today I went another 3 miles and while it didn't feel as good as Friday it still was doable and I know it was good for me.
I guess before I used school or work or anything as an excuse to not "have" to push myself. I figured I was still going to the gym and still doing 60 minutes of some form of cardio and that was enough. I know this sounds so naive, especially since I was an athlete all through highschool and know better, but it really is the only reason I can think of. I can't wait to implement more challenging workouts into my work week and see how it improves my mind as well as my body. It obviously is never to late to make a change and the best time to start doesn't have to be anytime in particular! I just decided as I was driving to the gym that I was going to run and then bam, handled.
Well that was my pseudo-inspirational post. I'm off to go run some errands before it's back to the office grind tomorrow!
