I already went to Target and to the grocery shopping today. I had been to get my hair cut. I cleaned a wee bit and my hair was clean. It looked a little windy.
I admit it. I was losing steam. Ask Kristina (Karvyo9/RunningChunky). I messaged her and told her I was going to skip my long run outside. I was ready to phone it in at the gym.
I mean, I had already ran 3x this week AND hiked with the kids. My brain was just saying, "its okay. Run tomorrow."
So I looked for my running magazine, because this workout was going to be easy peasy. Found it and I went into my room, opened my drawer and there it was....
I've said it a few times. As soon as I put on a sportsbra, I gain magical motivation. I have no idea why, but as I put it on I had talked myself into 1 mile on treadmill, then maybe the elliptical. Oh, and look my favorite running shirt is right there. Put it on.... Okay maybe 2 miles on the treadmill.
As I got to the gym, I headed to the treadmill and hit the 5k button. Oh, what? Oh, we are gonna do it fast? Already, warm up on 5.4? Um, wait... wasn't I supposed to phone it in?
Yeah, so okay I didn't do a long run outside but my sportsbra MADE me do a 5k in 33 minutes on the treadmill. ON THE DREADMILL (thats pretty fast for me on that thing). And, my sportsbra also made me jump on the bike for another 25 minutes.
And, yeah I have some pilates ahead of me, too.
Here's hoping you have some mystical sportsbra or shorts (for you men). Get your workout on.
