Sunday Running Report & Balance

IMG-20140124-00804_1390566206435_nMarch is here!  I am very excited about that.  My goals for March are to

  1. settle into my  running scheule
  2. supplement running and yoga with weight training
  3. keep doing the PT exercises to strengthen my hip abductors and relax my pelvic floor. 

This week I struggled a little because I continued to experience some of the stomach ickyness from last week.  However, I am happy with the fact that I continue to keep my commitment to running.  Here’s how it went.

Sunday: Walking  1 mile each way to and from yoga.

Monday: 1 mile warm up and 5 hill “sprints”.

Tuesday: Walked from yoga. 

Wednesday: Pilates class.

Thursday: 3 mile hike.

Friday: 4.5 miles.

Saturday: Rest and green smoothie/soup fast.

This week was a struggle.  I had to really motivate myself to put on my running shoes and get out of the house.  Once I got up I did OK.  I added half a mile to my Friday run and I am really satisfied with how I did.  I was hungry half way through it.  I have to figure out the best way to fuel my runs.  My goal for this week is to  maintain my performance from last week.  Let’s see how that goes.

How do you motivate yourself to work out when you don’t feel like it?
