Unexpected Motivation

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

I enjoyed a slow, easy run on the TM today with almost no coughing. Just missed two runs due to the cold. I'm back!! There are some new signs at the Y that I like. "Good Things Come to Those Who Sweat" and "Stick with It. What is Hard Today Will Become Your Warm Up." And there's a white board that I can't give you verbatim, but said something like you have just one body to live in and it can be an anchor holding you down or it can be a source of energy, vitality, and joy. Motivation from an unexpected source is even more effective!!

I have plans that will keep me from much computer time for the next week. I'll be done on Thursday the 11th. I'm thinking of using a Runner's World training plan with daily e-mails. My next race, a 5K, will be on June 7th, so I'll have just 8 weeks (and one spare day) to complete the plan. That just might work!!

Wishing you another happy, healthy, active Sparkling day!!

    I'm with you! Love the quote about only getting one body -- I can't think of a better motivator than that!

Good luck with your training.
