It's been 10 days since my first marathon and I was basking in the high of such an experience for a good 7 days afterwards! I thought about increasing my speed, I researched a few books to read, I plotted an agressive race plan for the new year! And now, I am 10 days out with only one seven mile run under my belt. Tomorrow I will be doing a short tempo run to keep my motivation up!
Feeling so great after accomplishing such a goal lasts quite a while when people in your life are asking about it even this far out. it was a high quite like no other for me. Being called a marathoner, finishing the race, rocking my time, are feelings that will make me warm and fuzzy till Minnesota thaws out.
Here are a few tips:
If NONE of these work for you, you maybe able to try some of what this man is doing in his video, but probably in the saftey of your own home. Have fun!
Do you use the treadmill only when you have to or do you use it more often than not?
Christmas TIPS: All week I am offering little tidbits to focus more on the simple joy and truth of the holiday!
Tip 5: Donate. The holiday season is when people think about donating their time to serve meals to the hungry, to spend a few hours sorting toys or clothes etc. And while that is a wonderful use of your time, it's been stressed to me that charity organizations are maxed out on volunteers during the holidays.
Instead of exchanging gifts with family and friends, ask a donation be compiled for your favorite charity and send all the money you would have used on gifts to them. Then take some time in May, July and September to serve. This way, you spread your volunteering out to months that are more sparse, and there is no pressure of what to get aunt Betty or whether cousin Fred will like the fruit of the month club. Perfect way to take pressure off, feel good about giving and JUST in-joy the family.
