Day 9 – I have a reader!

9 01 2010

Today I need to rejoice in the fact that someone commented on my blog on Day 7 — and I don’t know him!  The idea to blog came from my friend Jo-Anna, who read the book and saw the movie Julie & Julia. It’s based on a true story about a woman who cooks everything in Julia Child’s cookbook in 365 days and blogs about it. She got a book and movie out of the deal, so Jo-Anna told me I could do that too.

While I am not counting on a movie, I did think it was a great way to get in shape and — just maybe — be part of this blogging community where you find other people who are interested in what you have to say (beyond your loyal friends and family). So thank you to my reader, who on Day 7, encouraged me not only to keep up strength training but also inspired me to keep writing about it!

Back to today…when I really could not move when I woke up. From my core to my calves I was completely sore. Boot camp? Pilates? The two-day combo is clearly working my out-of-shape muscles. How could I have run 9 miles in late October and already be so sore from a week of exercising. It’s a good pain though – progress!

Today a 3-mile dog walk in sunshine seemed like enough to stretch my legs and save some strength for a longer run tomorrow when it’s supposed to be in the balmy 50s. Now – if I can just get up out of this chair…

Amen! My legs are barking too! I guess that means we have to go back to boot camp.
I’ll be your agent, when you get famous 🙂
