I celebrated Cinco de Mayo yesterday with five miles. That's the first five mile "roll" I've done since I began training. It felt great!
The only downside I can see to doing so much cardio is that it has increased my energy levels exponentially, and now all I want to do is get out there and do more cardio. I am finding mundane everyday tasks boring and effortless. These are all good developments, it's just going to take some getting used to. I am learning to manage the higher energy levels, but I never thought it would be so hard to do. I'm suddenly like Speedy Gonzales on steroids... ZOOM!
Getting in shape has never felt so good, and with each pound that comes off, and each mile I add to my workout, I notice how much easier it is to walk and crawl. I still have my "off" days of course, but I can really start to feel results and I'm loving it. It has become my way of life that every single day I have to do something to work up a sweat, and something that makes me use my body more than the day before. It's as if I'm 21 again (I wish).
Today will be no exception. Once this coffee kicks in I'm off to do something good.
Step count today: 250
Steps I'm behind: 7,175
