Good morning my friends!
Okay - so I may not be a 'model' citizen - but I did get my keister out of bed and exercise this morning. I'm going with the theme of brief but intense workouts this week, and increasing back to 25 minutes either this weekend or next week. So today I did .790 miles in 15 minutes. 4w/7r/4w.
It's not bad, and better than nothing.
But I am making a few changes between now and Monday to make it better:
Change 1: I'm finally hooking either the TV or the DVD player into the treadmill, like I can - so I can watch a movie while I run instead of listening to music if I wish.
Change 2: I'm going to change up my playlists again so I have new music to run to.
Change 3: See changes 1 and 2.
I'm still waiting on a nice piece of artwork donated to me by a disney friend to put up in the exercise room, so I can also put up the rest of the framed items I have, waiting to decorate the room...but since it's big (16x20) it will likely be the focal point, and I don't want to put anything else up until I have it.
Thank you to all my friends for helping me with a swift kick in the butt yesterday. The truth is - this is a long road ahead of me - and if I can't find my passion for it every day - I'll never get there.
But my passion isn't for the "run" - I figured this out last night - it's for the community. For the results. The run is just a means to an end. And I want that end. So I will be passionate about the means in order to accomplish the end for which I already have the passion to fuel the means.
That felt like a very Jack Sparrow paragraph...
MAIN STREET AWAITS!
