Don't blink. Just run.

Where training meets fandom. And everything in between.

Swift Kick In The Pants

I’ve been kinda lazy lately. I’d like to blame it entirely on my leg, but I really can’t. It’s not stopping me from doing an arm workout. It’s not stopping from doing a core workout. It’s really my mood that is stopping me and I realize this.

After seeing this video on about 4-5 blogs today (and watching it every time), it got me pumped up to get a move on. I got my butt on the elliptical tonight (now that I got cleared to do so on Friday) for a 1/2 hour and then did another 1/2 hour of my PT strength exercises and stretches that I was given.

Enjoy the video. I hope it motivates you the way it did me.

Attack of The Blerch

45 min strength – arms

Today, I couldn’t have had any less motivation to work out in any way. Typically, following my program I’m using, should be stretch and strength (arms). I do 1/2 hour yoga and then my arm workout. All afternoon at work I’ve been dreading doing anything when I got home. I felt like The Blerch was following me. Click on the link for a hilarious read and to find out what The Blerch is.

I sucked it up and decided I would just do it. Well, at least half of it. I skipped doing the yoga and just did my strength workout. I find it so much easier to go out for a run, even when feeling unmotivated, than I do on my non-running days. I don’t know why, I guess I just hate “working out” that much. Running seems easy. I lace up my sneakers, throw on my gear, fill up my water bottle and I’m out the door, jamming out to my fantastic playlist. It’s really awesome. Be jealous.

I guess I did OK, considering I was super close to doing nothing. I’ll take a little pride in that.
