Speed Walker without knowing it!
Wednesday, August 26, 2009
I've been getting a lot stronger through cardio & strength training. My stamina has definitely improved over the past 3 months. There are things that I find that I'm doing without even knowing it!
Today, my co-workers and I were walking to lunch. It's a hot day here in Hawai'i but I was enjoying the cool breeze passing through. Before I knew it, I noticed that I no longer heard the normal chatter next to me that normally happens on our short daily walk.
I turned around & noticed that my co-workers were about 50 feet behind me. I hadn't even noticed but apparently, I was walking a lot faster than everyone else! I didn't feel like I was tearing up the sidewalk (in high heels no less)! But there I was, staring back at them.
I turned around & headed toward them; This time, more aware of my pace. Yeah! Now that I think about it, I do propel myself forward with a lot more force...quicker & stronger.
I thought to myself, "Isn't that something?!"
Yeah, it IS something.
Something that filled my soul better than sweating over shedding 1lb has ever done. It's the confidence; It's the SWAG that was never there before.
Way to go me. Today, I pat myself on the back for a job well done. Here's to life's little, unexpected victories.
