Every now and then, you have to freshen things up. That’s true in all areas of life but it’s critical in your workout program. That’s because doing exactly the same thing over and over gets stale. When that happens, you stop making progress and motivation flags.
Having been interested in fitness for so long, I know it pays to try new things now and then…or to try old things, once again, that might have moved out of the rotation for a while. Long ago, I ran a couple 5k races. I find running less than pleasant and decided not to keep racing…or running at all.
That presented a problem when I realized that my huskies really, REALLY want to run. I love them and so, blast it all, I’m going to compromise and try some shuffling along, just a tiny bit faster than walking pace each morning when I take them out.
P.S. I didn’t really eat cupcakes this morning. My breakfast actually consisted of plain oatmeal (I like it) and shredded chicken with salsa.
