Get It Together: Fitness
I think I’m a little burned out. Work has been more stressful than usual, so in the rest of life I barely can get myself to do anything beyond the minimum! It’s not a great cycle, as doing productive things makes me happier and more motivated. You can expect a few more “Getting it Together” posts where I target finances, fashion (yay!), and daily routines.
I can’t get my fitness act together this summer!
This isn’t to say I haven’t been active. Even on our vacation, aside from walking the cities every day, we did a couple good hikes and did some walking on a glacier another day. I’ve been running sporadically. But I can’t get into a routine. I can barely get a post out about my lack of ability to get my fitness (and other life things!) in order! Seriously, it took me 3 tries.
I usually sign up for races as fitness motivation, but I’m worried – what if I sign up and I’m still not motivated?! I have never showed up at a race unprepared (except maybe my first race – a 10k), and I really want to get some PRs.
Here’s the deal I made with myself. Before I sign up for a half marathon (probably $80 or $90!), I need to complete at least two 6 mile (or more) runs. This is not hard, I could do these on a weeknight. But I just need to prove to myself that I really want this!
Anyone have tips for getting motivated? Also, any tips for getting over my yoga anxiety and just using the stupid Groupon I bought awhile ago?
