I want to be Constance when I grow up!! Her philosophy and mine go hand in hand ... just keep on truckin' !!! I think that's why I love this RV crowd so much ... they don't let any grass grow under their feet. The best way to stay young is to keep moving as much as possible, sometimes when you don't even want to.
That's what I did yesterday when I ran another 3.25 miles. I tried to come up with several reasons NOT to get outside and get my heart rate up ... like maybe my foot hurts, it's too cold, I'm tired because I didn't sleep well ... all the usual stuff like it's too sunny, it's too windy, it's too hot!!! In the end, once I'm on the road, I feel better, except for my sore legs and side ache from eating too much spicy food!! I didn't even feel my black and blue foot, bruised from the trunk falling on it.
It's hard to get a mindset and get it done ..... but in the end, even though I ran a circle in front of my house for the last quarter mile, I always feel like I really accomplished something ... and I can breathe so much better!! In spite of the discomfort, I always feel better ... the best part of course is when you get to stop!!!
