This afternoon, I took 30 minutes to get a fast walk in, attempting to stay loose and keep the blood flowing. I got a great workout in earlier and I know my muscles need some recover. I plan to increase my walking when I can and I have been staying hydrated. As I was walking, I was thinking, "What are the signs that my motivation level is up?" Here are my answers to this question, if as a reader, you notice my fluctuations.
1. If I am cross training, my motivation is headed in the right direction. I really do not enjoy cross training for the most part, but I know the benefits. When I practice what I preach, I am realizing the correlation.
2. I am hydrating when I am motivated. I am notoriously not a water guy. I do not like it. When I am putting the H2O in, it's a good sign.
3. The more I post, the more I am into it. My writing and posting motivation seems to go along with my running motivation. Here's to hoping I post a lot over the next few months!
4. I am eating healthy when motivated. It's all good on the nutrition front right now. I am adding some smart carbs so I can be more efficient running, but watching intake to continue weight loss.
I'm sure, as readers, you can see the ups and downs of my training. I sometimes wish I could look from the outside at my blog. It does, however, sound mortifying as well.
