Sorry for 2 posts in one night, but OMG! You guys!! I just went and did a four mile run/hike with my neighbor, AND I FEEL FUCKING FANTASTIC!
I had one coughing fit mid-trail (which never happened when I smoked, so maybe this is my lungs clearing themselves out?), but other than that, I was hardly breathing hard at the end! And I haven't worked out in like 2 weeks! I'm in terrible shape! Normally this trail kills me and I'm huffing and puffing and fighting to stay up with my super-awesomely-in-shape firefighter neighbor. She is a great motivator.
But now I feel like I could totally go do 4 more miles!
YOU GUYS. MAYBE THIS WAS THE THING I NEEDED TO MOTIVATE ME TO WANT TO QUIT.
I want to feel like this all the time!
