yesterday to be exact. For starters, I went to bed later then usual the night before. When I woke up yesterday, I felt like an old women. All my bones and joints were hurting. I decided to take it easy. I was going to try to sneak in a run after work, but lo and behold it was raining
cats and dogs.
With that said, my streak was broken, and I gave my body a rest day.
However, I was up and at em this morning and I went for a run for about 1.32 miles. It was nice. Straight running. I run slooooooooooooooow, but I need to get consistent with just running, not so many walking breaks. I wanna be in it to win it. So, Im slowly building up my mileage.
Ive entered a challenge with BGR North Jersey. We are doing a 40 mile til the end of year challenge. I think I can do it! Maybe not, if Im focusing on straight running, but we shall see! Im sure run/walk intervals haven’t seen the last of me! I need to keep my body guessing.
My Raveler’s Nike + group is doing a Final Push 45 mile challenge from Dec 1st until Dec 31st. Not so sure I can meet that challenge either, but I’m always up for a challenge.
In other fitness news, NYSC Bayonne is opening tomorrow. Im stoked. Maybe I will finally learn how to swim. They have some 5:15 am cycling classes. Im REALLY interested in those, but not so interested in the timing. We shall see. Perhaps, I can go once or twice a week, and let that be my cross training.
I know I definitely need to get back in with the weights. Years ago when I lost all that weight, I lifted often and I lifted heavy. My body took on a whole new shape so to speak. I was looking good! So that’s something else that is in the front of my mind. Either way I just want to have fun getting fit!
