You can all picture someone running, right? Good. Because that is my DPH from yesterday. It just so happens that carrying big cameras and moving at a pace faster than a brisk walk don’t mix. And I am not willing to post a picture of myself in running tights at this time.
The beginning of my couch-to-5k training was better for my mood than eating an entire pint of Cherry Garcia ice cream. Maybe even better than sticking an arm into a box of tiny kittens.
Every time I get back in the swing of exercising I find myself becoming totally elated by all the extra physical activity. During the workout, my brain tries to plan the next workout, often quicker than I should be running/lifting again.”Ooooh this is nice! Let’s do it again soon? How many hours do we have to wait? Why bother stretching when you could be running?!” This over-do-it all-or-nothing workout ethic is the source of my burnout and must be prevented this time around. I have to stick to the moderate training schedule that is planned for me, and fight the urge to EXCERCISE ALL THE TIME OMG IT FEELS SO GOOD.
