Back after a short break ...

Monday, September 10, 2012

Metabolism reset? Muscles "get used to" routine? Fact or myth? I'm going to find out for myself because I'm back moving after a break.

It's interesting that my pace, and distance are the same as before. But 7 miles felt sooooooo much longer to finish. It's in my head! My log showed I was even faster by a few seconds than when I was moving in July. But it felt like I was on the road for more time. It's definitely in my head.

Confidence and persistence are built on practice and repetition. That's a fact.

Stopping a healthy routine is way easier than maintaining one, or starting one. Fact.

    Glad you're back, and yes, I found that when I hadn't been walking for a while it seemed much further than it seems when I'm doing it regularly!

    You and I never agree on this stuff, as you know. I think it's fact...

    Welcome back by the way. Spark has been lonely and desolate without you.

    Good to have you back!

    I find my walks to be the same way . . . some days it just feels longer timewise and it definitely IS in the mind!

    Good luck and glad you're back!
