You Go Girl!

Thursday, September 16, 2010

Okay, so two weeks ago I announced that I was back on the wagon. I weighed back in at Weight Watchers and started back up on the C25K plan. Yesterday my daughter and I went out for a day2 week four work out. I decided that instead of running circles around the track that I would run the sidewalks of our neighborhood. While running a lady, a little bigger than me, rolled down her window and yelled out "You Go Girl!' and gave me the thumbs up. This was the second to last run, so I was pretty pooped, panting and red in the face at this time. I must admit, that it was a big boost to me. On my last run segment we ran pass our marathon running neighbor and he shouted out some encouraging words. I was just thinking that it really did give me the extra umph to have those folks cheering me on. I am looking forward to seeing the next "not so fit" jogger out so I too can roll down MY window and shout...You Go Girl (or Boy)!

    It's great to get that positive feeling especially right at the end of a hard workout. Good for you for doing the work out and getting back on the wagon. Maybe you'll be shouting at another Sparker sometime :)
