More Running and Encouragement
Thursday, February 21, 2013
Tonight to warm-up for the cardio circuit class I tried running again. I did 5 minutes (our warm-up time) at 5.0 and felt like it was effortless. This is a really good sign that I may be able to get back to running more now. I was hesitant until my 12 week follow-up dr. visit, but now I feel I can safely do short bits with no trouble. My 12 week visit is next month and I know she'll say it's fine since I've healed so well and quickly...all thanks and glory to God for that!!
It was also nice tonight at the gym when a fellow BL competitor that I've come to know a bit kept telling me how "small" I looked. She is someone I've kinda befriended since we tend to hit similar classes and got along really well, though she's not on my team. I'm just so thankful God brought me encouragement through this new friend since I've been at a bit of a weight standstill that can be annoying when I know I'm doing all the right things 90% or more of the time. I also had another friend comment on how she can see how my face is thinner now which is SO nice since I have always felt I wear a lot of weight in my face. Just kind words at the right time...scripture says those words are like apples of gold and it's so right!
