A little movement

This is getting interesting.

I did about a 3 mile hike yesterday in a somewhat hilly area. What surprised me the most was how tired I got just walking up and down hills. I was also surprised at how tight I was.

Today, back on the treadmill, I decided to up the ante a little. I decided to go back to the run 4/walk 2 intervals that I have used in the past. I know that it means pushing the run interval up, but, hey - we're all an experiement of one.

The good news is I still stopped at 2.25 miles, so I haven't completely gone over the edge.

We'll see later today how the pain is.

ORN: 2.25 miles, 29 minutes, run 4/walk 2

OK, I am no expert, but I am a mother, which makes me an expert in reminders and awareness (aka nagging):

look at where you were 2 weeks ago, look at where you are now. You haven't been knocked out, just down, and you ARE healing based on what your body is able to do now compared to a few weeks ago.

Remind your brain of your progress, and tell your brain to stay patient so your head doesn't push your body backward, by pushing it forward too much too soon.

Love, Your Mother.
