I think I've found my motivation!
Saturday, April 16, 2011
So, Thursday my boyfriend started questioning our relationship. I think he just got scared because he seems fine now. One reason he mentioned (besides our distance) is the impending summer. He's very active biking & hiking all summer while I'm not the most active. The majority of things to do where he lives are outdoors, whereas the majority around me are indoors. He was worried that we'd get frustrated with each other this summer because of my fitness level. He didn't tell me this to hurt me & I understand that, which is why it motivated me to go to the gym. I went yesterday with the intention of just walking 3 miles on the treadmill. Well, that didn't go as planned. About 3/4 of a mile in an old ankle injury flared up. I toughed it out until I got to 1.5 miles. After that I went to the stationary bike for 25 min. I ended up doing another 5.5 miles on the bike. Today I wanted to do 8 miles and ended up doing 9.5, 2 on the treadmill & 7.5 on the stationary bike. It feels really good to do so much. Hopefully I'll enjoy tomorrow's workout as much as today's. :)
