February 21, 2019

Let February 21, 2019 go down in history as the day when I worked out three times in 1 day. Uyy, my legs are feeling it now.

I started off with a body pump class in the morning. Then immediately afterwards, I put on my running gear and headed to Embarcadero for some speedwork. I always dread speedwork, because I feel intimidated by the faster pace. But afterwards, I glow. Seriously, I look at myself in the mirror and I’m all red lol. It definitely feels great to know I’m hitting my times and also during the run, I feel like I’m flying. No joke. It feels so damn good to just cruise down Embarcadero with fast legs.

After work, I headed home, changed into running clothes yet again, and made my way to Golden Gate Park. I wanted to run on the softer terrain since I’ve been having some plantar/foot pain lately. I ran loop after loop at Polo Fields until it was too dark to continue. Then I scurried over to Lincoln Blvd to finish the rest of the 12 mile easy run.

Three workouts in one day. That’s a first for me.

Just a month ago, I started doing 2 workouts in a day and I thought that was a lot!

Part of what makes this journey so rewarding is that I keep surprising myself when I accomplish things that I thought were impossible or incredibly difficult. But guess what? I can do difficult things!
