YTD: 233/600 miles for 2012
So since coming back from Aruba, the heat in NYC has really taken my running motivation far, far away.
I have run a whole 8 miles in the last 10 days. Not very impressive considering the 2 weeks prior I was running 20 miles per week (high mileage for me!). What’s even worse is that it is always so much harder for me to get back into a routine the longer I put it off… right now I am struggling!
So I gotta ask…
How do you motivate yourself to get back out there after a short hiatus?
On a more positive note, I have been really good with the 30 Day AB Challenge! The challenge is hosted by Run to the Finish & the daily videos are awesome! I have even watched some other Strong Like Susan workout videos & love them as well.
I have done every video so far (Day 21 today!). Not gonna lie, I have missed a day or two & had to do 2 videos in one day a few times. I have also added daily planks, side planks, standard crunches, squats and calf raises.
So while I have not been great with my running, I am adding important things to my routine that are strengthening my core & legs. That’s gotta count for something, right?
On another positive note, I got my #sweatpink package!! Yay for being a Sweat Pink Ambassador Not only are all of the ladies involved super inspirational – they are all so motivating & sweet. Plus, I got some awesome swag!
Love the quote
I obviously had to put my shirt on immediately. AND I even ran 3/8 miles this week in my Sweat Pink tank. Because I sweat pink, of course.
Love the laces. On a side note, is it just me or does re-lacing sneakers really stink?
Okay, so one more positive note…I made BLC banana soft serve after our run the other day & he loved it. Please make this. It is too amazing not to.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Soft Serve
3 frozen bananas
Splash of almond milk (add until you get the consistency you like)
2 TBs Peanut Butter
2 TBs Chocolate protein powder
1 tsp chocolate syrup
Blend! (BTW, you can add whatever you want. It is also delicious with just the frozen bananas & almond milk!)
And finally, because I have proclaimed this day Silly Saturday, please watch this video! I have watched it about 10 times already. It is super cute!
