I ran yesterday for the 1st time in about 6 years. I spent the day in the park with Aaron and his cousins, and my Sister-In-Law was there. She is very sporty and athletic and suggested that I ran around the park 3 times - the WHOLE PERIMETER. At first the idea seemed preposterous but then I started. Then I enjoyed it, and then I did it, all three times!
I am paying the price today - I am aching. But I think the reason I did it with ease is because I have juiced everyday since Thursday.
I wouldn't have thought juicing could have such an immediate effect but I got the proof I needed: (1) the experience of running with ease despite being unfit and (2) on the way home, Aaron slept all the way on the bus and I read The Funky Fresh Juice Book by Juice Master Jason Vale and it is full of juicing community stories and they all use the word "immediate" in relation to the benefits of juicing they experienced.
I think I have quite literally found my new way of life - juicing, fitness and weight loss here I come!
I am getting fit for forty!
