After taking a couple days off, it felt good being back in the gym today.
Today was pretty quiet. With Lynn not feeling too hot this morning I ended up covering a quiet shift at the store. After the store I came home, had a light supper then after it settled went downstairs.
The workout today was a light-paced 2.1 miles on the treadmill, and it felt awesome. I decided not to push it too hard today, kept things at a nice moderate pace and heart-rate, and stretched the workout out to fifty minutes including warm-up and cool-down.
I’m glad that I took the couple days off to recharge. Going three weeks straight without a day off of working out was definitely taking it’s toll. I need to remember to schedule the odd day off to keep from burning myself out.
I started reviewing my English textbook today, in preparation for my final exam in a little over two weeks. Now that I’m approaching the end of the course I’m starting to get a bit nervous about the exam, but I’m also feeling oddly at peace. This entire course I’ve maintained a solid 80+ per cent average, with the exception of my last assignment, which I have yet to get back. Based on how everything else has been going, I don’t see why I have anything to worry about, I just need to make sure I don’t get cocky.
Overall, things seem like they are going good, even if they are a might slow with work right now. I’m growing and developing personally and professionally every day. It’s amazing how far I have come over the last few months, and I look forward to seeing how far I can go into the future.
I know I still need to function within my limits, but my limits are growing exponentially.
