I worked out today!

So...yesterday was my 51st birthday.  Yep.  I wonder if that's why I decided to work out today?  idk - All I know is I felt like so I did.  Yay me.  I know I've said it before, but will say it again...I believe running after my almost 3-year old granddaughter has helped me physically.  I am pleased to say I was able to get on my treadmill and run, even though running to me is at 3.8 speed I was still able to run.  :)  I listened to Megan Trainor's newest cd, Thank You.  It's a great, upbeat cd.  Check it out if you haven't already!

I did last Friday's workout from HIIT Mamas..."Katie" - 3 rounds of running 300 meters, 20 wall ball shots, and 10 push-ups.  My time?  20:19:57 - Not bad for my first workout in months.  I started running all three segments at 3.8, did slow down to 3.6 on all, and I slowed down even more to 3.4 on the last one.  I started cramping really bad in my side during the last run.  Yep...more water needed.  I had no issues with the wall ball shots, but I did modify the push-ups to knee pushups.  I was able to do all 10 without stopping during the first two segments.  I did pause twice on the last set of pushups.  I was too quivery!

Anyway - I did it.  I feel good.  Let's hope I make this a priority again.  :)
