Lynda, today in her neighbor's gym)
Back on Track!
Literally. Treadmill windfall! I’m running again.
My neighbor graciously offered up her home gym while she’s quarantining in Michigan.
Right after we went on lockdown in early March, I’d been trying to get some cardio in, get my heartrate up--HIIT, going up & down my stairs. But that just didn’t cut it.
I missed everything running does for me: clearing the cobwebs, getting my creative juices flowing, high calorie burning, those sprints, easing my back pain and creating that incredible runner’s high.
So, whenever I’m struggling with something—I whine about it—publicly! Yeah, I’m a real shrinking violet.
Anyway, I took to my blog here-- FitOver50Plus.com-- and wrote a sob story about how much I miss my running.
So, Amy from my ‘hood texted me: “Hey, I have no idea when we will get back—so go use our gym!” Hallelujah!
That day I was running again!
She and hubby, Scott have an extensive gym but so far, I only have eyes for that Nordic track.
I never thought a home unit could measure up to the treadmills at the gym but this is darn nice. In fact, I used to think a home treadmill would become an expensive clothes hanger in my house but you know what? Quarantine has changed that thinking!
I’m back to running 20-25 miles a week. Reunited and it feels sooo good!
I’ve seen many creative people using anything they can find around the house to stay fit.
What are you doing!?
So, do share—are you working out? If so, what’s the craziest thing you’re doing or using to get a decent work out in? Share in the comments section.
