Exercise: 2 miles on the treadmill… 10 miles on the stationary bike… walked home from the gym, about 2 1/2 to 3 miles.
It felt good to exercise today since I hadn’t done much since my crap experience of dehydration. I went to the gym ready to do at least 5 miles today. Unfortunately, I couldn’t shake my damn cramps. Starting your period for the first time since June is good and bad. Bloated as hell and pain that makes you not want to move on the bad side. Finally having it and thinking that my body might be getting back on track is the positive side. I told the bad side to screw-off today and just kept going and thought positive thoughts. I told myself today that I ROCK!
I was trying to check the weather before I stepped foot out of the gym today and decided if I was 100% sure that I wanted to walk home, but my phone wasn’t cooperating. I purchased a protein bar since I hadn’t eaten anything this morning & made sure my water was sufficiently supplied in my water bottle. I walked out the door and it was sprinkling. I was so excited! I was actually hoping that it would just rain on me the whole walk home. I tightened up the silk bag that I have my Kindle & PalmPre stored in, so that the rain wouldn’t make it in there. I set off for home. I got a few drops on me here and there, but nothing more. The cloud cover felt nice, as did the little breeze, but I knew that it was still very hot out today. It had to be, it was 110 yesterday!
I made it home with no worries and no pain. That was wonderful! It still isn’t 20 miles, or 40 miles, or 60 miles like I will be walking in 12 days. I keep telling myself I can do it, I can do it. With all of the excitement that will be going on before, during and after the walk I keep thinking that it isn’t going to be as strenuous as it could be. Yes, I will still be walking 20 miles a day and yes, I will be sore and tired most likely during and especially towards the end. I will also be so excited, adrenalin and emotions flowing fiercely through my body. I know I can do this and even better… I want to do it! I am already thinking about doing it next year. Is that crazy?
