What an excellent analogy

Thursday, February 23, 2012

I was ready the Daily Spark Today and came across the analogy and clincher of the story. What amazed me was that it took 41/2 years for the author to reach her goal. In a now-oriented world, that is a lifetime away (I haven't even been married that long) but it shows an excellent example of the benefits of patience:

The lessons I have learned on this journey are many. There are those things I can control. I can control the distance, the speed and the intensity of my runs. I can control the time of day I run. I can even control the route I run. However, the one thing I cannot control is the [number of pennies] I may or may not find on my runs. I have to have faith that by doing the things I need to do, I will eventually reach my goal regardless of the time involved.

What a challenge

On week three of the 5k My Way and wow! 2.5 minutes at 6 mph/3% incline. The last 30 seconds each time was really hard!

Excellent dinner

Saturday, February 11, 2012

My Dad made an amazing homemade lasagna for dinner - oh wow! It was spectacularly delicious. It was followed up by sugar cookies and cupcakes (which I took home) and authentic, British pudding with caramel sauce (I had two servings and now my stomach hurts from how sweet it is). Delicious though

Excellent training session

Friday, February 10, 2012

My trainer was so helpful today. We spent a lot of time on form and practicing maintaining a neutral spine during my weak spots (bridge ups & push ups). I have a plethora of super sets for this month and all of them actively engage my core. Between this and Pilate's, I feel fantastic about my ability to control my movements. Now I just need to learn how to do it in multi-motion (not single motion) activities ... but that's post-beginner. Patience is a virtue emoticon
