I tried something new this morning instead of my boring, uninspired, not-very-often exercise routine on the treadmill. It was about 4:30 am, and I looked outside and thought, “I should put on my sneakers and try running/jogging outside.”
I really have never done this. I can walk forever but I’ve never really decided to go to the next level and jog.
I thought, “What the heck,” put on my sneakers and work out clothes and stepped outside. “Good, it’s barely light out, ” I thought, “No one will see me in case I can’t even run more than a few feet.” Then I just started trotting along.
Lo and behold there I was actually running. It stunned me. I really thought I was “too old” to try running. Yet, there I was chugging along. I felt so light on my feet. It was so much fun! I ran about a mile (but honestly I had to keep starting and stopping). Really fun. I am so inspired and motivated to try this again tomorrow. I thought to myself, “Omg, I can still run like when I was young. Wow, that’s so cool. I should keep doing this as long as I can.”
Have a good day!
