Motivational Monday #22

I’ve started 5k training for my Make Tracks for the Zoo 5k at the end of May. Slowly but surely I’m getting back into shape. More slowly, but it’s okay. Trying to hit those 3 mile runs as a base to then start building up. I’m glad I have some coworkers to join me so I’m not alone trying to get back into it. Otherwise, I would be walking a lot ha!

Motivational Monday #21

My first run of the year was on New Year’s Day. I went to get my Nike Apple watch ready for the run and it challenged me to a 5k. I said out loud “yeah right, I am way out of shape for that to happen.” Well, I did it and went even a little farther as I was running aimlessly around the area I live. It’s funny when you run often you know how far every bit of road is, but when you don’t and this is a new area to your running, it’s like a mystery where you will go. 

I’ve created the goal of running 500 miles in 2017, as that isn’t too crazy, but also won’t be easy if I allow my work schedule to take over. 

I found a good deal on running shoes and since I have gone from Asics –> Brooks –> Nike –> Brooks –>Nike, I’m now going to test out Saucony and Mizuno. My racing flats that I love are Mizuno, so I thought why not?! When you can get two pairs of running shoes for the price of one, may as well. 

As it’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I thought our motivation will have a theme…..
I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear. -MLK: The time is always right.: Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others? - Martin Luther King Jr. | Felicia made this with Spoken.ly: 15 Quotes About Life’s Silver Linings to Celebrate Debbie Macomber’s New Book: I'm pretty sure if you removed the sexism here it would apply to a woman as well. Or did I miss that equality boat too?: Cancel infidelity and polygamy. JFK (Jackie). MLK, Jr. Herman Rudd. Glenn and Cory. Cathy G..: Only love can do that.: Martin Luther King Quote To use the image as your phone lock screen or background, just save the image to your phone and select “Use as Wallpaper.”:
Honestly, a Kesha song came on the other day and ever since then, I’ve been reliving her “Animal” album as it’s definitely the right rhythm for running.
