You Can Tell It’s Spring

There’s just this buzz in the air. Maybe it’s the fact that the weather is warming up, or maybe it’s because I’m getting over a cold, but I want to DO STUFF! Physical stuff.

Silly. I know. I still have a mitochondrial myopathy and my stamina is somewhere between 15 and 30 seconds. But still!

Plus, people around me are signing up for things like the Swampfoot 4 Mile and Tough Mudder! Oh, how I want to be able to do those things! I don’t think that the Tough Mudder is a realistic possibility for me, at least not this year. But maybe, maybe I can eke out the Swampfoot???

Tough Mudder!
Doesn’t this look FUN??!!!!! πŸ˜€

I’ll have to train for it and I know that I’ll have to walk a lot and skip past some of the obstacles, but right now, just *trying* (and, okay, getting really muddy is kind of appealing too!) will be a nice thing!

After work yesterday, I went out and bought a glut of exercise stuff. Like a yoga mat, balance ball, jump rope, and tension band. I got this all at Five Below, so these things (plus a few extras) were all less than $40! Score! I also got a Jillian Michaels workout video from Amazon (it was free!), the 30 Day Shred.

It’s now about 25 hours after my first Jillian workout and I’m not really sore. Perhaps a little around the serratus anterior muscles, but I think that may be due more to the stretching that I did on my own after the workout. And I feel pretty good this morning. A little nauseated, but I’m used to that at this point.

I’m looking forward to my next workout this evening! And hopefully, a Swampfoot at the end of the summer! πŸ™‚ I’ll be tracking my progress both here and through the highly-scientific calculations of my Wii Fit (LOL!). So, tune in and keep me motivated! πŸ™‚
