You know when you see commercials of people running in Central Park or down the street and they look so put together? Don't let that fool ya, it isn't true!
What you don't see is the snot dripping out my nose and the sweat pouring down my scalp. It truly amazing how this exercise wipes all stress away. I might have been thinking or worrying about something at work beforehand, but it has completely disappeared.
I love the fact I am in true form here, there is not a hair style here, there is no lipstick its me giving all I got for fitness and health. This is me without my glasses on after a 3.1 mile run in 21 degree temperature.
Look got my new watch! I love how true the numbers are since it knew my exact heart rate the entire time. I didn't even know the heart strap was wrapped around my chest! That right there is a miracle in itself. The last time I wore one of these it barely fit around my chest. My husband had to make the strap as wide as it goes to get it around me and it was so tight I couldn't get through the workout without wanting it off. Just another reason why I am so happy to have gotten my weight off!
My husband said I should be above 140 pulse during my workouts, so last night I definitely made that goal!
I let the watch keep ticking after the run because I wanted to see how quickly my pulse went back to normal, so my time isn't right. I completed my run in 35:10 that is important for a runner, why I don't know except you want to always have a good time. That gets on my nerves too why I am like that, I would prefer not caring how long it took me. Any ideas how to do that?
My Hoka One One's I love them so much! No pain in these neuropathy feet because of these shoes!
Last, but not least here's where it all starts, my drive way. Today is 13 degrees and it won't be getting any higher, so I am glad its my rest day.
Whatever you do, give it your all don't rip yourself off and do a half-a** workout.
Have any pure workouts lately? If so, I'd love to hear about them!
