Lately I’m being humbled by a few things. I’m not surprised by this but nevertheless it is… humbling.
Weights. They are kicking my rear. Yet, I love it. I haven’t lifted weights in like 6 months and thanks to my lovely new gym membership I’ve been grunting through 40 minute weight sessions 3-4 times a week. I start with a 1-2 mile warm up on the treadmill, 40 minutes of various weights and then a 10 minute cool down on the bike. It’s not my normal cardio fest that I usually fall into but I already feel stronger and more ummm tightened up? I mean mostly there is nothing ‘tight’ about my bod but just in comparison to how I felt a few weeks ago. But mostly, I just feel sore.
Running. Going from poor running shape to somewhat decent running shape is always humbling. I am thankful for the fact that I could probably go out and rip off a painful, but complete, 5 miles at almost any point. Yes, it would be dumb and yes, I would be sore but just saying… yes, I could do that mentally. However, I’m not doing that currently by any means and am greatly enjoying my short warm up runs right now. However, I have a bright and early run date with my favorite running buddy tomorrow morning and I’ll surely be begging her to let us stop by the end of 3.5 miles. Certainly humbling. Sorry in advance, Christie!
Work. I love my job and what I do. I’m pretty decent at it too methinks. However, I’m constantly humbled by not being able to figure out the answer on the 1st… 2nd… 3rd.. 147th try. I just want ALL THE KNOWLEDGE. I’m glad it keeps me challenged though but… I WANT ALL THE KNOWLEDGE.
Parenting. No explanation needed, it’s just a really humbling experience.
What has humbled you lately?
