Now that I have exposed myself - I have to let you all know what I have been up to! I have committed to working out 5 days out of 7 this week. I met that goal!!! Yippee! I went to the Y and worked out inside on those rainy days. Friday I met a friend and instead of hooking up for dinner, we went for a walk. We walked a path on a nearby lake - ended up going around the lake - 4.5 miles! Longest walk I have taken this year outside! Sure was glad to see the car. My knee was really tired and I was limping a bit when I finished - BUT I FINISHED!!!
Sunday took my bike on the trail. Plan was for an hour bike ride. Got on the trail, the wind in my face, the sun on my back felt so good. Pedaled about 9 miles and started to hit that wall. Felt fatigued. My mind said, turn around and head back - its a long ride home! I pulled off the trail, drank some water and reasoned that the next town was only 3 more miles. I got this. Pedaled on. Blew by that town and went a few more miles, looked at my watch and already had my hour in!!! Turned around and headed home. It felt good. Smiled at everyone I passed - I was having fun and feeling accomplished. I couldn't keep pace with the serious bikers - but pulled in the parking lot not far behind them. There is nothing like the feeling of proving that negative voice in my head wrong!
Feeling rejuvenated! Maybe I have broken through one of the walls on this path too!!!
