Well friends.. i did it! Ha…i know for many of you, this is a daily activity, but for me…i NEVER do early morning cardio on an empty stomach. I just am so hungry in the mornings that I just need to get something in me..do my strength training and then do my cardio afterwards.
This morning I woke up an hour before my alarm clock. I have a training appointment at 8AM….usually i get there early and just chill out on the elliptical or treadmill, but today, I decided, I’m going for a run! And i’m doing it on an empty stomach.
Now I love that I am like a dog or a toddler..however you want to look at it. I tell myself I am going to only do 30 minutes(i do this almost every time i go to do any type of cardio) and always end up doing much more than that. Today i ran for 55 minutes. I did a loop that I knew was going to be longer than a 30 minute run, but I told myself I would stop and walk the rest of the way…..Knowing that I wouldn’t do that. I really was going to stop and walk at around 45 minutes, but I was starving at this point, and I thought to myself “If i walk..its going to take me twice as long to get home and make some food…RUN!!” So i did.
Anyways that’s my story just thought I would share. It really did feel great to run outside again. It’s been over a month since I have done that and I always forget how soothing it is on the mind. I highly reccomend it.
Challenge: Everybody do at least 25 pushups today.(Doesn’t have to be consecutive…but do as many as you can consecutively and let me know how you did in my comment box!!)
