Back to walking
Sunday, July 07, 2013
The last few months have been a little slow for me. I tend to lose my workout mojo in the spring for some reason. I started to feel a little lazy, then skipped one workout, then two. I told myself that as long as I wasn't gaining any weight it was ok to take a little break.
I went on vacation at the end of May and I gained 3 pounds. Boy, was I motivated to get back on it after that! I started walking again. I usually walk 2-3 miles at a time, but it's been awhile since I've been out since it's been so hot lately. Well, I walked 6 miles on the 4th! And another 5 yesterday. I have plans later today that I'm walking to, so I'll be doing at least another 4. The best part is: I'm not even sore this morning. My body feels really good which is amazing.
I kind of wish that I hadn't been so lazy earlier this year, but at the same time, I'm so happy that I've found my groove again. I look forward to going out and walking on the Greenbelt. (It also does wonders for my peace of mind.) And I'm so happy that my body can walk 5-6 miles at a time and feel like it can keep going. Next weekend I want to do a longer walk, maybe 10 miles. I'm going to pack a lunch and start walking and just see where it takes me. Hopefully, I'll have my new phone by then and can take pictures and post how it goes!
