I got my first run of 2013 in yesterday! A total of 2 miles, but it was outdoors (-5 C) and it felt great! I wish I hadn't "quit" running in the fall but life gets in the way sometimes.
Today I woke up a little sore and with a scratchy throat. I am hoping it doesn't turn into a full-blown cold, so I'm drinking water like crazy and going to bed early. More likely, this is just a bit of a set back getting into shape. I did 30 minutes of a new Pilates workout today which was medium-tough. I could do it, but some of the moves were too much.
I'm really pleased that my Pilates skills are improving. I read once that it takes a minimum of 5 sessions to "feel" a difference. Well, let me tell you, I am feeling it. My abdominals are tighter and I am moving just a tiny bit more everytime. Sadly, I can't see it in the mirror yet. I keep looking for that little bit of definition that I saw the last time I got "into" Pilates. I had a "2-pack" - you know, like 6 pack abs, but just 2 of them.... I'm hoping to work hard enough to get that 6 pack by the end of the year, but for now, I'd be thrilled with being able to hold a plank for more than 10 seconds.....
My goals are going awesome - cardio, salad, love to myself. Way to go me!
