Spring is in the air and it is also definitely in my step.
A lovely little bootcamp style / running session this evening confirmed to me that I am definitely v v v much fitter than a year ago and I have stamina, which is good.
Boy, those happy hormones kicked in afterwards. It feels great, especially being outside. I will be transferring a lot of my current exercises to the great outdoors as the weather begins to take a turn for the better. It’s mighty pleasing to inhale that fresh air into your lungs.
Walking stamina sucks
Having just self-praised my athletic stamina, I am confused as to why my walking stamina is so weak. I’m okay with striding with a purpose, but that sort of mooching walking when you’re in a museum or ambling through town – ugh, my body just sort of caves in and feels all achy and pathetic.
How come I can do a 3 hour Zumbathon or take two classes and then do a HIIT programme, but I cannot walk round Washington DC without feeling all weak and feeble and drained and in need of a large glass of wine……?!
My large, and very welcome, glass of wine after three hours walking round the sights of DC.
I’ve ordered myself one of these babies so that I can be even more OCD about everything:
It will track my sleep as well as calories out and calories in and all the other stuff. I am really interested in it tracking my sleep because I have become a very bad sleeper and that has such an impact on my eating habits and how I feel generally (which is v v v v v v v v grumpy – that’s a don’t-even-think-of-coming-near-me-because-I-will-bite-your-frigging-head-off-grumpy – if I don’t have enough sleep!!!) Just so you know 🙂
It doesn’t come out until May, but my order is in. Hoorah!
