Last week was big snowfalls, a few missed days at work, extra sleep, crazily cramming to get everything done at work after a few missed days, and vacillating mood changes.
I confess I had more dark chocolate meltdowns than normal. I was not feeling motivated, but I feel like I salvaged the week okay.
What can I say, adjusting to not running is tough stuff. 23 days now...
I lost my work out partner too. Hubby is sick with some kind of super plague, he's been coughing enough to hack up a lung.
I am not sure if walking is the best thing for my foot, however it does lift my mood immensely. I forgot how much I enjoy walking. I can still enjoy sunsets and a little solitude.
Saturday, the weather was decent enough to get outside, so I took my bike to the state park. A few roads were still snow covered, so my ride was a little limited, but I was able to accomplish my two hour goal. My feet were numb by the end. It was so chilly, but I intend to try to get outside and get a longer work out in when weather permits.
The state park is much hillier than my neighborhood, so it is a better workout than I get biking around my neighborhood. I was afraid to ride on the streets anyway, with the snow still piled everywhere.
I am grateful that my gym cycle has lots of different courses and difficulty levels, but there is nothing like being outside.
I just can't stay on it much more than an hour.
Now, if I can just hang on for about 98 more days this way...
Right now it is dragging, and even though this year is not starting out like I expected, I am trying to adapt and hang in there.
Did January go like you expected?
When is the last time you laced up and just took a walk?
I hope you have a great week!
