Hard work paying dividends....

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

Well it had been about 38 days of 2 hrs. a day plus of fitness work and my body was tired. Yesterday I skipped my morning 70 minute walk and only did 37 mins last night in a walk, that was it all day. I needed the rest. So this morning I was feeling kinda bummed because the last 4 days has yielded nothing in weight loss and I'm seeing my goal slip away. Oh well big guy, bite the bullet. I eye balled my old Fila walking shoes and my new uber duber NB running shoes and the choice was easy.

I set out and started my technical low impact shuffle jog (lmao) and before I knew it I was half way on my route with only stopping once briefly and a splash of water at the school, then comes the 3% avg. upgrade back up the 3.25 mile route. Could I do it I asked? Headphones blasting I was willing to try. One short break 1/2 way up the hill and one mandatory when heart rate hit 95% near the top.

I gotta tell ya this felt good. Not many run up this grade and they are definitely in shape the ones that do. I felt like Rocky Balboa !

I've decided what the hell, timed miles every Sunday, Junior is going down......... emoticon

    AWESOME - way to go! Sometimes you need to listen to your body and when it's time, it's time. There are days I don't like to do the activities, but after I've done them, it feels GREAT! I believe I have such a high expectency of myself and like you, I have a guilt trip, then I 'make up' the time another day or do a complete different exercise.

    You are doing great John!!
