This morning's workout was exhillerating! I hit the pavement for some cardio as soon as I awoke. The weather was absoultely perfect, a slightly cool breeze stirring up a sunny, much drier day. I encountered so many people while I was out walking, and I will tell you that the people in Green Bay are the friendliest lot I've ever been around. People were so happy and pleasant as I passed by them, it just made my morning. I tried to keep things at a moderate pace, to try and burn more fat than calories, but some songs just amp me up and I had to keep reminding myself to slow it down a little. I originally thought I would go for a run this weekend, but I think I might just switch my 5k registration to this month rather than waiting for July's run. I think I am ready. I am not planning on making running a lifelong thing, it is too high an intensity for me since I want to maintain and even add muscle to my physique, but it will make me feel really great to complete a 5k. Running is a little too hard on my body. Last week's 3 mile run made my legs, back, and hips sore for the better part of the week. The ibuprophen I took before the run helped my knees not feel too bad, but having to take ibuprophen before doing something is a good sign that it's something I probably shouldn't be doing long-term. And I'm OK with that. Running isn't a passion, just a test of my fitness level. I can't outwit my age.
I'm happy I didn't back out of my weekend workouts this weekend. It proved to me that there is a roadblock there, but also that there is an answer to that problem.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
