Ahh.... I've deemed this "Rest Day". I think technically by my schedule, it shouldn't be, but I switched around this week's schedule a little bit, in the interest of listening to my body. My ankles are feeling a little bit stiff, and I've been pretty non-stop. SO. Instead, I went to Zumba (some rest, right? lol). I figure that way, I still get a bit of exercise, but it's a lot less stressful than running or lifting like I have been.
BUT, that said, perhaps I have found myself a buddy for my Spartan Race next year! Yay! Looks like my Zumba instructor, Nicole (and incidentally, her husband) are interested in doing one, and she wants to be my buddy! Yay!
As I said to a dear friend yesterday, it is much easier to accomplish Herculean Tasks if you don't feel like you're alone in your pursuits (or that everyone thinks your ridiculous for pursuing your goal!).
It has been interesting, this journey of mine, as far as other people's reaction to it. Is it really that weird that I could transform my life, and want to be a better version of me? Geesh, people. I have had to disassociate my exercise/workout stuff from many of my friends, or at least not expect "support". That said, I've found the people that DO support me, and I have been ridiculously grateful for them.
And now... Back to my rest day!
