Me: I have been doing so good with my workouts since last Wednesday and now? Supposed to be 80% chance of thunderstorms tomorrow and Wednesday, which shoots to hell both running (ok, walking) and swimming! Hard to believe it now, as it's sunny and clear. Boo on stupid weather.
Helen: If I was you and swam this morning and saw that my walk tomorrow was going to be cancelled due to weather, I would go out and walk tonight. To me, it's important to get the movement in and if you have to double up one day that's OK!
Me: You are crazy. Exercise TWICE in one day? What kinda crack are you smoking?!? You know, that option never occurred to me. Seriously. Why would it? Isn't it enough that I exercised ONCE??? LOL. I am actually cracking up at your suggestion, only because it sounds so absurd that I never, ever would have thought it up myself!Of course, after that, you know I had to get out and walk/run that night. Jeff was agreeable, so after dinner we set out - luckily I'd made big salads so we weren't exercising on a full stomach. By the way, I've given Helen a new name: Dolvelen. Because she's taking on the taskmaster status of Biggest Loser trainer Dolvett. And actually? I appreciate it.
Getting back to my promise from last week, here's a picture that I am happy to show you:
I am getting my exercise mojo back - and I like it! And, dare I say it - I've even had a glimmer of hope with running! I've been doing 10:1 intervals (walking for 10 minutes, running for one minute) and on Sunday? The ankle didn't hurt very much. I just might be able to do this.
A windswept "thumbs up" to that run/walk!
