I've read that once you've established a pattern of working out and then fall off the workout horse getting back in the rhythm doesn't take too long, something about muscle memory. I'd like to believe it, I hope it's true, it better be true 'cause I'm not a patient person when it comes to getting in shape/losing weight. I'd like to go to bed looking like a Clydesdale and wake up a Thoroughbred.
I began my regimen with a thirty minute walk/jog on the treadmill, my
Off to the 'big town' to buy a pair of Asics. This is what I came back with, nothing special but they do have cool looking sock liners.
You wanna know something, I've come to a conclusion. I will never be a Thoroughbred when it comes to my body, I will be a Clydesdale no matter what I do. And I'm okay with that. Clydesdales are work horses not pretty boy/girl horses that spend their time being catered to and running a couple of miles at breakneck speed. Clydesdales work hard, provide service to their owners and make great Christmas commercials pulling cool looking sleds through pristine fields of freshly fallen snow.
Now, if you'll excuse me, my body is a bit sore after two days of being back in the saddle and I need to go soak in some Epsom salt.
