Your Body Is A Gift

It was like I had a major light bulb moment. I mean for the last 6 years, weight loss has always been a goal along with getting more physically fit and stronger. And I've heard people say that you only have one body, and you need to take care of it blah blah blah...

But it's like I felt this on a personal level - like WAKE UP GIRL! You have ONE BODY. It's YOUR responsibility to take care of the GIFT that you have been given. I experienced this while I was in bed with pain in both of my feet. My right foot was throbbing from the arthritis, and my left foot was in as much pain from my plantar fasciitis.

Hot and Humid 10 Mile Run

I ran with a friend this morning. I'm glad we decided to start an hour earlier. It was hot before Sunrise today, along with lots of humidity.

This run wasn't pretty, but it was completed. The goal for today was distance. We had to switch to a run/walk at about a couple of miles in to help with her breathing. And honestly, this is much harder for me. And my goal for today was to get in a good workout, and that was definitely accomplished. By 5 miles, if I'd known someone on the road, I think I would have had them pick me up and take me back to the car. Yep, between the heat, the sun, and my legs who were protesting, the last 5 miles were a struggle for me.

But, we did it. And she wanted to keep it under a 12:00 average pace which we also did.

Tomorrow is a REST day!

I'm pleased with my 26 miles this week.
