For a runner, five months is a long time to go without running. And to go from full on marathon training mode to seeing your total mileage for the week at a big ol’ ZERO was like slamming a car head on into a wall.
I missed the super sweaty, cleansing, exhausted yet so awake feeling of a good run. My body just needed a good Runner’s High to get me through the day. Sure I could hit the road on my bike, but do you know how long it takes to get a Cycling High? I don’t know, I’m asking. I’ve yet to get there!
Rather than crying in my running shoes, I knew I needed to find a way to get my soul cleaning sweat on. So I’ve been walking, hiking, doing HIIT workouts, lifting weights, cycling and yoga. Basically doing whatever my foot tolerates that makes me feel human again.
As much as I despise the treadmill for running, I don’t mind it for walking, especially when I want to get an intense hill workout. A variety of levels of hills, available at the push of button, that doesn’t require me driving to the mountains when I’m short on time yet prepares me for hiking? And I can catch up on social media, blogs and my favorite T.V. shows all at the same time? It’s a winning situation.
Here’s a 45 minutes treadmill hike that I’ve been getting my sweat on with.
I always have my phone with me while I workout. I use it for tracking workouts, listening to music, posting sweaty selfies on all my social media after a workout and of course, for safety reasons. It’s a delicate piece of equipment, yet I put it through some intense situations. There’s nothing more sickening to accidently drop your phone and find the screen shattered into a million little pieces. I know, I’ve done it a couple of times.
But now there’s Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4. In laboratory tests, Gorilla Glass 4 survives up to 80% of the time when dropped from 3 feet high, and was up to 2x tougher than competitive glass designs. With Gorilla Glass 4, the focus is on improving damage resistance against sharp contact, such as a drop on asphalt, concrete, and other rough surfaces. Gorilla Glass is the toughest cover glass yet for your device.
