And just to cap it off, I really love to run but can't stand weights and other strengthening exercises. Just to give myself a break, though, I do it.
So I got up early this am again...did about 40 minutes of lunges, rubber band arm exercises, etc. Did not have to stop once. Did not go to the bathroom until more than an hour after I finished working out. And only once.
Go figure. Mother Nature's way of saying stop running and do weight training instead.
