Weekly Workouts April 29 – May 4

I have worked out or done some sort of exercise 6 of the last 7 days. I cannot remember the last time that happened. And it feels good. Being sore all day Thursday felt good. It felt great actually.

And so I really, really enjoyed that day off. I didn’t feel guilty, I didn’t agonize over what was or wasn’t happening to my body, what I was or wasn’t doing to it. Because I had worked hard, I had made a change. I deserved a reward and deserved some rest. So I watched too much tv, baked a layer cake and played with makeup. I enjoyed my day off, because I knew it was just one day. I’d be back at the grind soon enough.

Even this morning, after a restless night and after hitting snooze three times, I still got up to go for a run. A slow, agonizing run – but a run nonetheless. I got up. And I’ll keep getting up, getting through my workouts. Enjoying my workouts.
