However ... last night I got my sweat on! At first it sucked a big one. I was hot, itchy, sweaty, lethargic and just so did not want to work out. Being off sick for a week and a half left me feeling so badly out of shape. I know it will come back quickly, but fighting your way back is just hard.
I knew that no matter how much I didn't want to work out - I HAD to! I just could not leave it one more day. As we all know, one day, turns to two, turns to three, turns to 4 years - and I'm not willing to go down that road.
I started off with a little warm-up and some strength moves (push-ups, curls, squats, abs - etc.) Then I did a 1 mile run on the treadmill. I repeated this 3 times, each time pushing myself faster on the runs and lifting more weights and/or more reps on the strength.
At the end I could feel my old self returning and I was reminded of how awesome a good workout is. It may have only been 3 miles, which for me is a short run, but it was perfect.
While I've gotten a late start for the month of July, I want the last half to be great and I want to stay active. I'm not aiming for a particular mileage goal this month, will just do what I can. But I will commit to 19 Days of Activity in July (commencing July 13th - that's every day!). I think this is key for me.
