Yesterday was just about the best day I have had in awhile! It was finally, FINALLY the day I could start moving again. I had been waiting for that day for what seems like forever, but in reality was only seven weeks. Only seven weeks. Nothing about it felt like “only” when you are in the middle of it.
I had really hoped to start back with a hike, but after seeing the temperature outside…
…I started thinking otherwise. Especially knowing I could only walk/hike for 10 minutes. (I have to build my foot movement very slowly. Adding ten minutes to each previous workout. Allowing for a rest day in between workouts.) I didn’t think 10 minutes of movement outside when it feels like -9 degrees would warm me up. I opted out
side for the treadmill instead.
Being inside had a benefit. I got to use my new wireless headphones!
I have a couple of friends who have these headphones and love them. When I saw them on sale before Christmas, I had to have a pair for myself! Since then I have been waiting to give them a try. And guess what? They are awesome! They are lightweight. Easily adjustable. Very comfortable on my ears. The sound quality was fantastic. The controls are simple to use. I look forward to spending much more time with them in the gym! My only regret? Getting them in black. I like colors! Unfortunately, when I bought mine, the only color they had in stock was the black. Boring! Oh well.
In other exciting news! My foot felt fine the entire walk. Pain-free is the life for me! <— Sung in my best sing-song voice! (Anyone else remember the Green Acres show from many moons ago? Just me?) And today? It still feels good today. No issues. Yay me!
And look at the post-workout glow!
Or maybe it’s a Snapchat filter. 😉 Either way, there’s a glow!
