As I left work tonight, I was trying to figure out what I was going to do in terms of working out. And after a few minutes of pondering my options, it popped into my head, I will run outside tonight! For those of you who have gotten to know me over the past few months, you know that I enjoy running outside. And for those of you who are getting to know me now, it hasn't always been that way. I used to despise running because it meant I had to move at a faster pace then I was accustom to. Hence the 302 lb problem I had developed a while back. Anyway, I decided it was time to take my cardio routine back to the streets tonight.
It has been almost a month and a half since I was able to run outside. This long period of time was due to bad weather that has been brought on by this very long winter. I was able to run a lot down in Charleston during the month of December but it was nothing like being able to run at home. So with my excitement starting to get out of control, I made my way outside. I did not waste any time heading towards my old running route, that got me through the starting stages of running.
During my run, I was noticing how much easier it was for me. I remember when I first started a few months ago and I couldn't wait to get from point "A" to point "B" and then back home. It almost felt like I was running because I had to, not because I wanted to. Well things have certainly changed since then. I enjoyed my 45 minutes of cardio tonight. It gave me a feeling of being myself again in my own environment. One thing is for certain, I hope Spring comes fast because I definitely want to be running outside instead of in the gym. Anyway, it is getting late and I have a full day of things that have to get done tomorrow. Until tomorrow, have a great night my friends.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
