I’ve been thinking a lot about getupnow’s post about the C25K program & what she said really resonated with me, especially the slump I was experiencing before this trip. I was actually hating running last week cause I felt like I was able to run 2 miles, so any time I couldn’t repeat it, I felt like a failure. Now I’m back to running for that feeling of blissful accomplishment: what I run is good, provided I push myself to do more.
So Friday’s run was a lot of fun & I didn’t even mind the hard, non-moving earth beneath my feet for a change. & it got me off to a good start this trip: my goal is to hit 10,000 steps before noon every day & I’ve managed that quite nicely so far. After the run Friday, mom & I took a couple of short walks around her condo complex & then we took my nephew to the beach to fly a kite & walked main street Hyannis before dinner (19508 steps for that day). Yesterday my brother joined me for part of a 5-mile walk & I made a point to move throughout the cookout & walk a bit at the ball park where nephew’s team won runner-up for the district (steps=17989). Today a 5 1/2 mile walk so far.
Boring post…sorry, and now it looks like we’re on the move again!
