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!

    Way to go. We all seam to get lazy in the Spring. I have some WAH CD's that I start using at that time it seams to help. I remember the days when I could go anywhere from 5-10 miles. Now I am lucky with my knee if I can go 3 miles in one day. Plus being 68 going on 69 the body tells you when to slow down.

Remember the water when you go on that long hike.
