Although you have not heard from me as regularly lately, rest assured that I am in a happy, live-living, joy seeking and sweating-finding place. Also, I have taken a small step back from the blog in order to make more space in my life for my coaching clients, fiance, needy cat and myself. As always, I am thankful for your continued support and encouragement as I shift my way through life!
Days 135-137: I am still (seriously, I am in the running for the world record’s longest cold to inhabit a healthy body) fighting the funk and thought my body could use a few days of walking to recover.
On day 135 it was almost sixty degrees and I walked for over an hour from my neighborhood to Cherry Creek. I even ditched all of my outer layers a few minutes into the walk so that I could soak up the sun and sweat freely.
Heading into Friday a.m. Denver got about three inches of snow, but I decided to brave the cold and head out for a walk. Despite the strong winds, I have found that a great pair of Sorel boots will help out a walker in any temperature.
On Friday evening Mike and I went to the Colorado Mammoth lacrosse game with some friends. It ended up being the most fun night we have had in Denver and we did not get home until a little after 1 a.m. If you know me at all, that’s like saying we got home at 5 a.m. to a normal person. Needless to say, it threw off my workout schedule and left me with walking to work on Saturday as my only workout option. It takes me about an hour to get there, so I was ok with that being my daily sweat.
Day 138: Today Mike and I decided to try out the local 24 hour fitness to see if we might want to join. It was really nice to be back in a gym after over a month of just hitting up the outdoors and yoga studios. I ran on a treadmill for 25 minutes and then did the elliptical for 15, followed by a hefty amount of abdominal work. It was a nice refresher of what it feels like to have a gym routine- maybe some day too my gym commitment phobia will go away and I will actually join one!
