Back in the Game

We had a great Sunday. Started off with our friends coming over and we went kayaking at our community beach, awesome! Then my brother in law calls and says he'd like to put his boat in the water. We have a boat slip and ramp with no boat so we pretty much let anyone who needs to use it do just that. Someone may as well get to, right!? :) So we went out on the boat with him for a few hours too. Got home made dinner, stuffed peppers, and they were great. I find it so therapeutic to cook, but recently I just haven't done enough of it. So that made me very happy. While the peppers cooked, I......drum roll please...........FINALLY GOT TO GO RUNNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was on cloud 9!! I finally got to get out there and get back in the game, and break out the new running shoes! Of course I did choose the record breaking heat/humidity day in Maryland to have my first post foot sprain run. But that didn't stop me at all. I ran for 15 minutes and felt amazing! I wasn't super winded, just mainly dripping with sweat, so I kept it to just 15 minutes today. I am so grateful that my foot is better, I feel good overall, and I'm able to be back in the game! Plus I've had tons on my mind lately, and I missed that lovely endorphin rush from a good workout :)

Positive Thoughts.......

Yay! Glad you got to go running again! Exercise is so therapeutic, I hate it when I can't do it for an extended period of time!
