The weather is heating up here in Virginia Beach, shewh. So that means the end of running season for me, a little running hiatus til cooler temperatures arrive (September). I'm not going to stay cooped up in the house....it's walking season.
This week's fitness challenge for the Motivators Team was to walk for at least 15 minutes per day, no problem....We CAN DO it !!!! There was a great article on Spark this morning about walking....
Walking is what originally started the weight to fall right off me at the beginning of my journey, I would walk every day and I would walk everywhere....to the store, to lunch, etc.
Some people may think this is a step down from what I am used to since I have been running for three years, but I don't see it that way. I see it as giving my body a little break, while still keeping active...moving and a grooving, and a little speed walking can give you a great cardio workout.
I will still run on nice weather days and I have a couple 5K's that I will be doing with some new runners (I love the excitement of newbies), but I think this may be good for me for a change. It will give me some quiet time to contemplate what I am going to do next with my life, I'm at a crossroads....my baby was just married last month, so the nest is empty of my little chickadee, so now what to do with this next phase of life...I want to focus some on "me" - getting more fit, carving out some muscles, but what exactly do I really want???? I'm hoping to have an "ah-ha moment" on one of my walks, lol.
Some quotes I ran across this morning on google:
And lastly, I'm going to remember this one...Walk away from the frig, hahahaha. Have a sparktastic day.
