After last week's apathy, I'm thinking I feel better today. I had a nice interval workout on the treadmill, keeping more of an eye on my running form than attempting to run fast or hard. I clocked 2.41 miles in 34 minutes. Not bad, considering that I wasn't even sure if my body (hip and foot) would allow me to run at all. It was the first run I've had in about 2 months, and it didn't hurt much at all. I'm debating between swinging my kettlebell around or packing for the rest of this evening.
The nicest part about this workout was that it was something that was just for fun- no pressure, no berating myself for missing the last week of workouts, no extreme muscular exhaustion from a workout that was too hard yesterday. It put the activity back into physical activity. It also made me realize how hard I have been pushing myself lately, and it's no wonder I was fatigued and apathetic.
Leaving the nutrition alone has worked well too. Yes, I'm having regular servings of ice cream, but I'm also eating 2-4 servings of veggies in one meal alone.
On the moving front, I'm up and leaving on next week Wednesday. I'll probably be awol for awhile, we'll see what internet connection is like. I'll go crazy if I have to go without internet too long. My job is an office job, so I should have some access. Even if I am living in a very primitive environment (outhouses, baby!). I'm excited, I love the Boundary Waters Canoe Area.
Well, I think packing is going to win out. My bookshelves have got to get done.
