Tomorrow's Gonna Hurt! Poor body of mine...

Saturday, January 26, 2013

So...this was me today!

I have been reading this blog by Katie called Runs for Cookies. She was the one who started the 10 person relay with people who have lost 100lbs or more and even included Ada from BL. Today was her birthday. She decided to do a virtual 5k and anyone could have signed up on her website. You would do the 5k on your own, around the neighborhood, at your gym, etc.

Well...I signed up a few days ago and was very excited! Last night, I slept terribly. My Fitbit showed that I really only got about an hour and a half of sleep. Needless to say, I was up most of the night...I think I had insomnia due to stress (my day job is not covering my bills each month and they keep paying us late). I go to Zumba tonight and figured I would do the 5k afterwards. Well, we had a sub and he was FABULOUS! However, I was dripping at the end of the first song! He beat the heck out of us...I debated not going to do the 5k afterwards...But then...I thought, "Kristi, you always flake out on yourself. Look, you signed up for Katies 5k, you are going to follow through, even if it takes you an hour!"

So guess what? I did! I did it in 45:10, not my best time...but pretty good for being wiped out and not jogging for almost 3 months. My body hurts all over and I have my WI tomorrow morning. I am hoping that I don't gain because of water retention in my muscles. But if I do, oh well. I know I am doing my body good!

Zumba's gonna hurt in tomorrow morning's class before WI! Despite that, I'm going!

    I'm so proud of you! I hope that every time you move and feel that soreness today, you feel proud of yourself for keeping the promise you made to yourself.
