Quite a few years ago I wrote a post called Pondering What People Told Me.
It was all about my own self-definition and how I let interactions throughout my childhood mold who I thought I was and what I was capable of doing.
I always thought (and like to think) I’m the kind of person who doesn’t care what other people think of me, but the truth is I do.
We all do.
Some of us are just better at moving past it than others.
Anyway, this is a pretty deep introduction to a post in which all I really wanted to do is share my beach week workout ideas. The reason I’m even taking this direction is because The Husband was like:
“No, you didn’t. You didn’t list out workouts for the beach, did you?”
And I was like,
“YUP! I did AND I’m excited about it.”
I really am, too!
As someone who used to identify as inactive and nonathletic, I have an irrational fear people will look at me the way I used to look at active people — like they are CRAZY — and well, I’m sure they do.
Actually I know they do because I used to and The Husband does!
But today I had the confidence to tell him to shut up and let me do my thing.
Please note, he wasn’t mean or unsupportive in a way that was hurtful. He just has ZERO interest in this part of my life (working out) and it blows his mind I’ve come this far. And it should — it blows my mind!
All that just to share this with you…
6-mile run as per my marathon training
Double Unders — I’m going to bring my jump rope!
Run ~3 miles
3 Rounds for Time
25 Air Squats
Run ~3 miles
10 walking lunges (each leg)
Doesn’t that look like fun?
Oh! And last year I found a beach yoga class. Afterwards is when I snapped the photo above. I’m hoping I can make it again if they are having it. It was super fun, too!
I’m SO looking forward to a change of pace and being active at the beach this year. It’s who I am now, and yes, that does blow my mind considering 10-15 years ago I stayed away from the sand and surf (only one of my favorite places on earth!) because I was so terrified how I looked in a bathing suit.
OK, got to go. Book writing is going well AND I saw potential cover ideas today. TOTALLY blew my mind!
