whatever happens

Speaking to my sister, I remarked on what a lot of walking we were going to be doing on our vacation. She said she'd be fine - she's gone back to working out, and she's doing well. When she told me how well, I realized I was in trouble. When I told her what I could do on a treadmill, all she said was, "Oh." Let me tell you, rendering my sister too polite to speak her mind is quite an accomplishment.

So I am now motivated to go back to working out, and I made today my first day back. I've taken out a lot of the elements of my normal workout, focusing on stretch/warm-up for the walking, then longer on the treadmill. I did 20 minutes today, at a slow pace, but my heartrate stayed within the normal zone and my feet and legs don't hurt now, which is all good.

Nothing like the spectre of having my sister go "You're tired? Already?" to get a person motivated to work.
