Car in the shop; put my exercise miles to work!

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

Wow it was about 25 degrees today with wind and snow and sleet... my DH dropped the car off around 9:30 to be repaired, but the supplier sent the wrong part... so my car won't be ready until tomorrow. I didn't know this when he dropped me off at my second job at 8:30 AM.... I had an appointment back across town at 1 so I had to leave my second job and walk all the way over there... and then leave there and go to a second appointment and then walk home. It was SO cold and I only had on little exercise capris, big sloppy t-shirt, sneakers and my Columbia jacket (long enough that it covers my backside). Walking wasn't fast enough so I ended up doing a walk/ jog/ walk/ jog all the way across town. I didn't go too fast but I was definitely able to keep the pace for some time. Which tells me I should be able to get back to the gym tomorrow. I've still got sinusitis, but I think I can do ok if I don't push myself too hard (who me?!). Anyway, with a little motivation (freezing cold weather) I was pretty impressed with my endurance and ability to hustle across town at a fast walk/ slow steady jog. I haven't exercised in three weeks but wow, I'm so impressed. I can't wait to get back to the gym as I know now fully well what I can do on the pavement. I haven't lost what I built up so I can't wait to get back in there! woo hoo! SO encouraging!

    Nothing like a good brisk walk. It eases the mind and soul from stress.
