Post marathon…

A little over a month ago I completed my first marathon.  I still can’t believe it!  Since the marathon I’ve run a couple of times but have mostly focused on weight training.  I decided to focus on weights partly to give my body a break from running and partly because I want to give my body a chance to get stronger.  I have to tell you, I’m loving weights!  I love that I can be creative in what exercises I choose and what body part I want to work each day.  Granted, it’s also kind of stressful since there are so many options but I really like being in control of my workout.  If there’s an exercise I have on the schedule but I really don’t want to do it, no sweat.  I choose something else.  Although exercise is a commitment and I don’t always feel like doing it, I don’t want it to feel like a big chore.  Being flexible with my weight lifting routine helps a lot.

I’m excited to share more about my weight lifting journey with you!  I took some “before” photos and hopefully by the end of the summer, I’ll be brave enough to show you where I started and how far I’ve come.  :)
