Last night in my fit status, I wrote something about rain washing out my running course and my thinking about having to run on the road in order to get in my 1-mile run (and walk for that matter). A few of my bodyspace friends commented. They were encouraging me to get out on the course (The distance around part of my back yard is .2 miles. 5 laps makes a mile) and run. LOL! Here is the most straightforward of the comments:
"Run through the mud come on!! That's the BEST running!"
I have done that many times, I guess that I just was not really up for doing it today! Running in wet conditions, even for a short distance, for me, is the equivalent of another leg workout. Nevertheless, I went out there after finishing up the indoor portion of my bodyweight workout, hit all of my bar exercises, 1-mile walk and 1-mile run. My legs did not like it after I was finished. I was soaked from head to toe, but it felt good to get through it! I captured the moment with a picture! LOL!
LOL! Bodyspace really blows up the photos now. More incentive to get my butt back into top shape! Check out the sweats and the water in the yard!
I was really thinking of substituting tomorrow's 2-mile walk for today's workout. However, the forecast does not indicate that the weather will be much better on tomorrow. Now that I have this workout done, I can take my time and have a good stretching session and 2-mile walk on tomorrow! Thursday, should be perfect for another Tabata workout and cardio session.
Well, this workout will probably go down in my mind as one of those great workouts that I am glad I persevered through. Thanks for the feedback everyone. I was going to move this workout to another day!
Have a wonderful remainder of Tuesday!
