Secrets of Success

My Workout Buddy




When I don't feel like exercising, I take my 5 year old son for a walk with me. I set a goal pace for myself (usually 17 min/mile) and then I try to stick to it. I keep myself and my son both motivated by continually telling him "You can do this, buddy." and "You're doing great! Keep it up! We're almost done!" More often than not, I exceed my pace and workout length goals, and both of us get in some much needed outdoors time.
