50 Miles in May
Sooooo, apparently that means 12.5 miles a week. There’s a chance I should have done the math before telling everyone I was going for goal, but where’s the fun in that?!? Ignorance was bliss and honestly, I’m glad I didn’t overthink the decision.
I needed something to re-energize my running and I do well with external motivation. Accepting this challenge has forced me to rethink my time and get a little creative in finding miles.
I was counting on four miles on Sundays while our youngest had practice for flag football. Well, you know what they say about the best laid plans. A late coach and short practice meant 1.3 miles. Eek, talk about starting off behind the eight ball.
I was able to add a little here and there. One of the best ways I added miles was taking one of the boys for a walk while the other had baseball practice. It was quality time, exercise and pretty scenery all in one!
Running before teaching is really working well. I’m motivated and I have a finite amount of time. Mostly it’s been a mile and that’s completely doable. I just have to show up. Today, I am meeting up with a friend for a run and I can’t wait!! Here’s what my miles have looked like 🙂
#NamasteInMay – why not?
One of my goals this month is improved arm balances. Imagine how happy I was when Fitfluential and MPG Mondetta Performance Gear combined for a yoga challenge on Instagram? The poses didn’t look too bad and I jumped in! Yeah, I didn’t look at the whole calendar. There are some pretty intense poses that will certainly challenge me. I will do my best and I can modify when I need to.
The boys are loving this challenge. They don’t always want to be in the picture (and have been the photographers a few times) but they ask everyday what’s the pose for the day. They try them out and it’s been really fun.
I have shied away from these challenges in the past. I have mixed feelings about photographing myself doing yoga. It is interesting to see what it really looks like. Of course, I’ve been having fun incorporating the beach when I can. The weather is finally nice and I’m trying to see the beach as often as possible 🙂
Here are the photos so far
Do you say yes and then figure it out or do you plan it all ahead? What’s your favorite way to approach a challenge?
