“That day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run. So I ran to the end of the road.”
I’ve alluded to this a few times already, but in case you missed it, I have taken up daily walking combined with little runs. Basically to the end of the road type runs, but multiple times over the 3.4 miles. I’m still building stamina to run. I hate running.
Except, I don’t hate the benefits of those short sprints. Stress? I love taking it out on these morning walks/runs. I love feeling strength creep back into my body. I’m at a place in life where I can take better care of myself. I’ve been walking a week and a half and I have already logged 33.3 miles. My knee is cussing me out, but I feel accomplished. I love arriving back to my porch after 45 minutes completely drenched in sweat. The endorphins are an amazing anti-depressant. I just gotta have my Rocky “No pain, No Pain” moment to get to the endorphin part.
Another no pain, no pain pep talk is getting to the end of the school year. We are almost there and I will be back to regularly joining all the linkies very soon! Thanks for your patience and still joining me here each week while I tie up loose ends!
Let’s see your week!
