This girl just wants to have fun!
These past few weeks, after finishing up a gruelling and tough 9 weeks of Metabolic Aftershock workouts, I concentrated on getting my food plan under control. And while I was doing that, I only walked for exercise.... it was enough, given the carb depleting I was doing... but on Sunday, yesterday, I finally got out for a run and it felt just great!
The Captain and I did an easy 4 km loop around the park and along the Strait. It was enough, after not having run at all for several weeks. It took 30 minutes. But that is okay. It was just so exhiliarating to get out in the late morning sunshine and brisk breeze and move!
Running for the love of it... for FUN... has always been my main motivation. In the past when I was in training for a particular event of some sort, running didn't feel like fun. It was an obligation. I had to do it. I had to keep to a schedule and get it done, whether I really wanted to or not, whether it was raining or windy... not fun for me and so I don't do it anymore.
And this week, starting today, I am back to doing some strength training, too. I have decided to use the 21 Day Fix workouts again for a while. I really enjoy the Upper Body Fix and the Dirty 30 routines so those will be my main focus... should get me through the holidays... that and running!
And of course walking... there is always walking. This city has so many wonderful places to walk! And with the holidays quickly approaching, there are so many lovely and festive displays to take in as well.
What makes fitness FUN for you?
