Well, not really. The whole exercise phenomenon is pretty foreign to me. I mean, I've done it. And, for the most part, I hate it. But it does feel good afterward. And I know that it's going to help me reach the end result I'm looking for much sooner. So why can't I get the hang of it or the motivation to do it regularly (or even somewhat regularly)?
Yesterday a few of my girlfriends and I ran the Hot Chocolate 5k. I opted not to train for this, and I'm feeling that decision a bit today. The energy and excitement I felt at the beginning of the run was amazing. I had planned to walk the 3.1 miles with one of the girls, but when we got separated, I took the opportunity to see what I could really do and pushed myself to run as much as possible. When I crossed the finish line, I was so proud of myself - it felt so good!
So maybe I'll try to keep up this whole exercise thing. Hopefully I can remember that feeling I had at the end of the race the next time I choose to just sit on the couch.
