I used to run…not so much from the cops or mall security (anymore) more so for-fun athletic, race-type things.
Running is very zen/meditative for me, you’re pushing yourself along letting your mind wander as you start to get into a rhythym and your breath gets used to a sped up steady pace.
When B. got us a gym membership about a month ago, I carved out some space in my work day to go with her.
It’s reminded me of how much fun the gym is!
I can’t run yet, given the broken foot, but I’m doing laps in the pool, workouts on the elliptical machines and getting lost in my daydreams, 😀
But wow, the next day, after a bunch of lunges, does my ass hurt.
B and I are happily hobbling around and soothing our sore muscles, delighted we’re getting back into better shape.
Sometimes I feel every month of my approaching 34 years but a sit in the hot tub, and I work out all the knots.
Still, can’t wait til my glutes stop yelling at me!
What do you like to do with your body? For fun or fitness?
