I ran like half a mile today after my hike. Most of the run was on an incline up a little mountain cluster that I live in. I haven’t ran in a while, even though I did track & field and cross country for 4 years in high school. Running felt good! But I wouldn’t do it for super long distances. I like to switch it up. I think some variety in activities is better and healthier. I have some of my favorite things that I like to repeat, but I also make sure I don’t just do the same activity every day. A few days I will go hiking, other days I will take a class at the gym like Pilates or Barre, other days I will do my own thing at the gym like the stair master and weights, and other days I go to the Ocean and swim and walk long distances on the beach. Relaxing, resting, and sleeping is also important. Remember to drink lots of pure water too! The cool breeze today felt like Autumn and felt so refreshing and gave feelings to hope and good times ahead.
