turned out to be an awesome day. I got up in the morning and had breakfast immediately. Around 8 am I left for the gym and rode my bike over. I have not ridden my bike in a week or so and it was brutal. Brutal I tell you. But I made it to the gym and hit the treadmills. I started couch to 5k - again. So Week 1 Day 1 is 5 minute warm up, 60 second running/90 second walking 8 times. I started running at 5mph and every run interval cranked it up. My last run interval was 6.0mph and it wasn't that hard. Yes, it was only for 60 seconds, but for those 60 seconds I felt incredible. Then I headed down to the Bodypump class and did that. I powered through those moves even when it felt like my muscles were on fire. And, if that wasn't enough, I then hopped on my bike and rode over to Kailua to meet Hubby and head to Whole Foods. My legs were thrashed by the time I hooked up with Hubby. They felt like wet noodles. Awesome!!!! I spent the rest of the day taking it easy and worked on my thesis a little bit. But what a fabulous day. My arms this morning are feeling the workout yesterday. Woo Hoo!!!
A couple of things that occurred to me yesterday. First, I am much, much stronger then I give myself credit for. If I can run at 6mph at this weight, I am a runner. So I really am strong. Also, the best days are the days I do things. I rarely say I had a good day just sitting around the house. So I need to get out and do things.....
The bad part is I don't have a plan for today. Yikes.... I have been up for an hour already and don't know what I'm going to do today. I better go figure it out right now.
