I am exhausted... but happy...

Friday, May 10, 2013

Oh am I tired! I didn't do all that much more than I did on Wednesday, but for some reason I am totally wiped out. I will take the dog for a short walk this evening, but other than that I am going to put my feet up and relax. I made myself a cup of tea, put on some Mozart and was just sitting in my recliner listening to the music and the rain. I totally wanted to just waste the day today, but made myself go to the gym and run. I ran, then pedaled, then ran some more at a steeper incline. And then I did ST. Add in dog walks and some light house cleaning and I am exhausted. I think I will be over 100 miles tracked this week, so I think I have earned two active recovery days this weekend. I have decided that I can't really call them "rest days" since I generally walk ten miles every day. Some days it is a little less, but in general 10 miles is my goal for walking mileage. I am going to have to take an actual rest day one of these days, but not right now. I am on Day 598 of my fitness streak, and I want to keep it going for at least until September 20th. So, I am pretty wiped out, but feeling really good. I definitely don't regret working out today, despite the struggle I had convincing myself to go do it. Silly me!!

I got a new pair of hiking sandals today. I can wear them in the water, so I can wear them when we go kayaking. I got them so that I can go hiking up at Arkwright Falls. You have to walk in the creek part of the way, so sneakers would be uncomfortable for the return hike. I haven't been up to the falls for years, and I am excited to get up there again.

    Awesome plans! I agree that walking out in nature hardly feels like exercise although it obviously still counts! Funny how doing the things we love is so easy right?

Keep up the good work!

    you are such a beacon of hope to those of us who have struggled with mental wellness and an inspiration to those of us who struggle daily to just put one foot in front of the other-- enjoy your active rest days- put your feet up- read a book
