Wednesday-Group run fail
How is it Wednesday already? This week is flying by and that is great because we are heading to Traverse City this weekend for a snowshoe 5k race! I’m counting down the days and staying busy.
My second week of swim class took us to the lap pool. My form is getting a lot better, but I still feel very winded after 1 or 2 laps. More practice I guess!
Tonight, I went to meet the Elite Feet group run and no one in my pace range showed up! It was dark out, so I chickened out of running alone. I decided to make an impromptu rest day out of it. The hardest part of a run is getting ready and out the door, so I was a little disappointed. I will be back next week!
Speaking of motivation, reader Susan asked about ways to stay motivated to exercise when working a full time job. I wish this was an easy answer, and that there was an easy way to achieve highly motivated status. I believe motivation is like rolling hills. I find myself highly motivated for a few weeks, and then less motivated for a time. Here are a few strategies I use when I’m struggling to get out the door.
Here are a few recent food pictures! Delicious homemade sushi by Kevin, and vegetarian stuffed grape leaves from Anita’s Kitchen in Ferndale.
