Winding Down

It's hard to believe that this year's 30 for 30 is officially winding down.  But, to be honest, it has served as the launching pad to continue fitness throughout the Summer and beyond. Yesterday was a cardio session, followed by body weight strength and then another cardio session for a total of 90 minutes.  After the workout I stretched and cooled down.  Yesterday I felt strong and I like that feeling.

Saturday's workout, where I felt broken, was similar to yesterday's, but I felt different during and at the completion of this one.  I like feeling that the workouts are making a difference.  To be honest, toning and tightening is a huge benefit, but the way I feel is the greatest reward. That makes me happy and that feeling keeps me coming back to a solid workout regime.

Today is a short run.  I've been cautious with running and easing back into it, post bursitis.  The longest run has been about 3 miles, but I keep in the back of my mind that I'm getting back into it after an injury and not training for a race at the moment.  It's important to listen to my body and not jump back in, making an(other) injury a near certainty.

During this month, I've incorporated the healthy eating strategy (minus the Memorial Day feast... there was macaroni and cheese!) and followed the detox program I shared in January (as seen here).  Probiotics, lots of alkalizing lemon water and snacks that include good mono-unsaturated fats found in raw almonds and avocados.

Those of you following along, how's your fitness journey coming along?

Until tomorrow...
