Today I was planning to do a 5k run after work- but after my strength training session on Tuesday morning (which included LUNGES!) I was pretty sore- especially the hamstrings. All day at work, I kept telling myself that it would be ok to skip it and relax a little. But you know what? At the end of the day, I told myself it was NOT ok to skip it - and that I had to at least try- and if it meant I walked more than normal- then so be it. I did walk a bit more than I really hoped, but my overall pace was still so respectable.
When I got home, my husband was just arriving with the kids- so we decided to head out to dinner. While I may have eaten a bit more than planned while out- I decided on the way home that I was going to cut the grass when we got home. So that's what I did. 30 minutes to push mow the front and back yard- I'm beat but I feel good!
My oldest daughter - she approves!!
