As I mentioned in my running tips, tracking your runs is a good way to get some running motivation and to keep track of your progress. I use the Nike+ app and this is what as was greeted with yesterday…
You can nicely see my 1/2 marathon from last year, trying to keep up in November, NOTHING in December, ONE in January and… nada. NOT GOOD. Once again I stopped and lost my training. I have been thinking hard about getting back into it, and even signed up for a 10K race for some extra motivation.
The two other factors that finally made me go yesterday were:
I mean man, if all these people can run a marathon, I can move my “derrière” for 30 min.
2) Speaking of “derrière”, Laura from Chicken Tuna
She is…44 and has a killer body that I would love to have at 25 (I am so dearly hanging to that number for the next month and a bit). I just booked a beach holiday and boy do I need to tighten up. I have not worn a bikini in 3 years (it is not a myth that PhDs suck the life outa you) so I kinda want to make an effort.
So today I went running with my sister who also wants a chicken tuna booty.
We ended up running 5K and it felt GOOD. We had this game of choosing a letter of the alphabet and having to find words starting by this letter. If you could not think of a word within 7 sec, you had to squat.
How often do you run? Once every 4 months apparently
