Learning to be flexible
Wednesday, December 10, 2014
I had every intention of going to the gym this evening, but my workout buddies told me this morning that they weren't going. I'm not doing any strength training right this moment (I know, I need to focus on ST more), but I was going to hit the treadmill at the gym to work towards my goal of being able to do a 5K by my birthday in February. Well, Bear and Maggie came up to me SUPER excited JUST before it was time to change for the gym. I can't say I blame him - it's been a while since I got a good wog in with him, and even LONGER since Maggie came along. And I haven't attempted jogging on the treadmill yet - I have this fear that I'm going to trip and hurt myself or the treadmill, so I'm a work in progress.
So I caved! I hooked their leashes on them, and off we went. I'm surprised how quickly Maggie figured out the running bit - of course, I talk to them quite a bit while we're walking (I think people think I'm a little nuts!), so I warn them when we're getting ready to change over from walking to jogging. The 3rd time, Maggie bolted at the word "Go!" LOL She was definitely in her element. Bear has some difficulties, but he's like his momma - the colder days give us ENERGY!
Had the hungries again today (I'm beginning to think it's the cold weather), but did fine calorie-wise. I'm making progress, and that works for me :) Hope everyone had a great day!!!
