After a week’s post-surgery hiatus from exercise, I ventured back to the gym this morning. It’s amazing how just a week off from my normal routine had affected my fitness levels. I could only manage to run 4 songs-walk-run 1 song-walk-run 1 song-walk today, for a total of 30 minutes. But at least I did something, and it felt good to be back. The weather forecast looks lovely for the whole week, so I may attempt running outside for the first time soon.
Having the right music continues to be the key to motivating me. The Tooth Fairy kindly credited my Amazon account with $20 to buy more workout music when I had my wisdom teeth out. 🙂 Here are my 3 current favorite songs for running at 5mph:
“Runaway baby” by Bruno Mars (thanks to Melissa for recommending this one)
“What I like about you” by The Romantics
“Love me love me” by Big Time Rush
