What a difference in attitude and energy exercising makes. Yesterday I was off. Unmotivated and well depressed. I didn't even finish getting my spark points until after 11. Anyone who knows me knows that isn't me. I had PT at 8:30 this morning. I got up and had my swimsuit under my clothes not 100% sure I was going to go to the pool. I am not sure if I have a UTI or just going a lot because of the water but that is TMI. After PT I felt good, so I headed for the pool saying I would put in at least 1/2 hour. Once I started going, I didn't stop. i was there for over 1 hour. I grabbed a noodle and I was going on that stepper and I was going fast. 15 minutes. I said I was going for 10 and I felt good after 10 so kept going. There was a lady there who was actually cheering me on. By the time I got done, I had an audience of 3 who told me good job. I was so proud of myself, it felt good. I felt like I really accomplished something. Then I was cross skiing with the noodle. After doing the stepper I could only do 8 minutes, I couldn't do no more. Good thing I had my water by the pool side. I drained it and the life guard actually came over and asked if I wanted her to fill it up for me. I said yes, please. I wonder if I looked funny, like I was gonna pass out or something. After that I just walked the pool, 4x forward, 3x sideways and 1x backward.
I came home, hung out my suit, jumped on spark, and there is nothing on the fitness tracker that even resembles what I did in the water. I entered it on user entered. I have no idea how many calories I burned. I don't really care, because I know how energized and pumped up I feel now. I took a shower and washed my hair to get that awful chlorine out of it. Note to self, CUT YOUR HAIR SHORT!!! My hair almost touches my butt and now that I go to the pool I have to cut it.
I am now ready to face the day. I feel like going to the park and walking. I don't know if I should though because I don't want to overdo it. Tomorrow I won't be able to move. I just feel so full of energy and I want to do something. Does anyone else feel like this after a really good workout? I have felt energized after workouts before, but not like this. It is almost like hyper. I am confused as to what I am feeling. Please tell me of your experiences.
