Something strange happened to me Tuesday, I went outside.....
I'm sure you all are saying and? Let me explain. I am a gym rat as many of you know but, I have that burger issue thing going on, so the gym and I need to reevaluate our relationship. Wait, it's not the gym's fault I'm stuck inside, it's mine! I decided that whatever I've been doing for the last 14years is not working and I need to do something different. Funny thing though the older you get the harder it is to do anything new!!!
I stepped outside and almost ran back in! I pushed myself down the driveway and Oh My God, some man was outside running! I was like well let me get in on that action, I run on the treadmill for 30 minutes and I go to the Gym all the time! I decided that I was going to do what he was doing and I took off. I was looking good for about a minute and then about 4 houses down the block (notice I said down, I was running down the block) I thought I was about to die, I looked like this:
Reality check for me, outside working out is not the same as inside! Rather then going back inside I decided to do walk/run intervals. 25 minutes later I made it back home and it was one of the best aerobic days ever!
Keep working out, it works if you work it out!
