Day 69! Happy Saturday! It’s one heck of a hot day here in San Diego. Whew…holy freakin’ cow. A balmy 90 degrees and let me tell you…it made for one hot walk/run. I was dying. I’m not going to lie. Every time I started to run, my lips, tongue, and throat would become instantly dry. It was crazy. Thank god for deciding to take a larger water bottle on my route today because that puppy was sucked on frequently.
I also got over myself regarding not wearing tank tops due to my insecurity of my flabby arms. I couldn’t imagine trying to due those 4 miles in that heat wearing a t-shirt.
And yes I know, it sounds silly and I am trying to get over that insecurity. Baby steps. I working on it. I’m working on it. 😉
Okay, so on to Day 69’s activities and grub:

Overall Feelings: Today is a great day and I am feeling really good. The soreness has subsided a great deal in my legs and glutes. It’s still a little sore, but tolerable. And when I mean tolerable, I mean enough to go on my 4 mile walk/run which made me very happy. It was hot as heck and when I got home, the sweat just poured from me. I think all the water on drank on my route, came flooding out of me once I stopped and got indoors. Ha! It just felt so good to be able to do that again and had totally set my mood for the day.
NOTES: The only thing additional to note is that due to the soreness I had after my legs workout, I need to be a little more smart in my lifting decisions. Lol!
You see, I probably hadn’t done squats in nearly 10 years…and lunges, probably 6 or so. So, it probably wasn’t the best idea to start doing those exercises all out…especially with weight. Needless to say, I will be doing them using just my body weight and no dumbbells for the lunges, and only the bar without added weight on the squats.
I will probably also do less reps.
As with everything else, I need to set a good baseline and work my way up. I definitely don’t need to hinder my progress by injuring myself.
Hmm…good idea Noel. 🙂
