I general dread traditional cardio – I DO it, because I know it’s important. But…it’s a struggle most days!
I recently gave myself a lovely bout of plantar fasciitis from running too hard, too fast, too intensely – I woke up the next day and knew EXACTLY what happened.
Frustrated I may have been, I knew it was a cue from the grand ol’ Universe telling me to slow down. My feet have been hurting, I’ve been overly exhausted, and frankly. . .I’ve derided cardio even more than normal. Did I take a break? NOPE!
So…the Universe HANDED me one.
Instead of busting my buns of the treadmill, I’ve done a few days of moderate spin. My session aren’t stellar – I haven’t drilled myself for a while, so my pace and power isn’t necessarily where it could be. But, I put in the effort. I get on knowing that it may not be perfect, and it doesn’t have to be – the point is, I’m doing SOMETHING. I’m getting on and giving it a whirl – there’s no need to be breaking records every time you do an activity (maybe I’m writing that as an extra reminder to myself! 😉
So don’t worry about making one session or another your absolute best – just START. A little CAN go a long way towards your goals of staying fit and healthy. ❤
