This new addiction that I have, working out, is becoming contagious. Last week The Husband decided to join me on this adventure.
Three evenings a week we load up the kids, and their bikes, and drive 5 blocks to the other side of town. (Yes, my town is about 5 blocks wide. And maybe 10 blocks long. With a population of about 800. Jealous?) The softball field has become our “running spot”. The kids play in the dirt part (what is that called? Where the bases are?) on their bikes while The Husband and I do Couch to 5k (C25K) around the entire field. The kids think it is great fun. They occasionally run/walk with us, and think it’s funny when they can catch us. This exercise thing is becoming a family thing. I think I like it.
When I first started C25K I really enjoyed it, but my ankles and knees hurt so bad for the first few weeks. I’m happy to say that I am now pretty much pain free. I am so glad I did not let it stop me from working out. Instead it made me push harder to build those muscles/tendons up. I’m finding that my endurance is building, my strength is building, I am feeling so much better. I can’t see any results, though. I haven’t lost any inches. I don’t look any different. It is very discouraging. But I guess that as long as I feel it, I will keep it up.
Anyway, that’s where I’m at right now. Hanging on by a thread with the motivation, but having enough willpower to keep going. I think that since The Husband has started as well, I may have him guest post once in a while… what do you all think?
Smile and have a great day!
OH! And I forgot to mention, starting next week I will be doing a fun Pinterest Post Party for the next month. On Tasty Tuesday and Thirsty Thursday I will be trying a recipe that I find on Pinterest, and posting about it. A bunch of people are doing it. Want to join in? Read more info about it at Our Front Door. Also, if you have a pin on Pinterest you would like me to do, please mention it below or send it to me. Thanks!
