.... and a 1, no 2, no 3, no 4 mile walk!

Not only did I get in my Kenpo exercise this AM but I decided about 5PM that I would take my 8 month old Arabian colt for a little walk down the road. He's usually such a handful that I don't get very far before I have to turn around and head home. He started right off prancing, shaking his head and hopping around like usual but I guess he's finally learning because after about 5 minutes he settled down quite a bit. Since he was behaving so well, I thought, hmmmm let's try a mile. He had his moments but was behaving so much better than I expected, I decided to go two miles, then three. I was planning on turning around and heading home but it was so nice, I was working up a sweat and he wasn't yanking my arm off, soooo, yup, you guessed it. We walked 4 miles together! He got a wonderful training session and I got a wonderful second workout for the day!
It's funny how the more I exercise, the more I want to. Oh yeah, remember that morning workout that I felt I couldn't push myself hard enough to make it feel like work? Well, I may have underestimated my efforts and the results. I'm feeling it in my legs, glutes and arms tonight and that was before my walk. It's a great feeling! I'm really looking forward to tomorrow's workout. This is an incredible feeling. I LOVE the feeling of motivation!
