I have to share this…
Yesterday we went on an all-day outreach handing out fliers to invite people to a free christian concert we were supporting in the evening. Not including the time spent hanging around waiting to get going, etc. we spent about 2 1/2 hours walking around neighborhoods handing out fliers door to door. It was HOT and HUMID and there were some hills to walk up and over. However…[drum roll please] …. my legs didn’t hurt at all from all the walking. Not one bit!!! I was only miserable because of the heat and humidity, but not because I was too tired of the walking. The soles of my feet were a little sore, but I think it’s because I need new tennis shoes and that’s it. (well, and because I’m still carrying around too much extra weight)
I told Freddy that I think I wasn’t sore at all because I’ve been working out and walking daily. I have a feeling that a year ago I would’ve been really sore in my legs from all that walking and standing. He agreed.
So, that was encouraging. I’m still carrying a lot of extra weight around, but my body it becoming more fit and some things that would have been hard for me are getting a little easier. Yay!!
