Go RUN!

Hi!

This is a short post…

This week had been a little busy, crazy and a lot going on…which is good! I still doing my runs in the days I can. On Friday I needed to run, I had one of those days that I need me time, clear my mind, and just be relaxed. My method is RUNNING! On Friday it didn’t happen. So on Saturday I woke up, put on my running clothes and when for a run. In this run a lot happen. I was very committed to run non-stopping and I was focus. You know the mind is powerful.  I ran 1.70mi non-stopping which It never happen before and I have been running short distance since 2013. I stopped for a while and this year 2017 I started again at it. This happen because I was determined that this was the goal, this is what I want. So Is happening!  I completed a 2.75mi. run. It felt and still feels good that I achieve this. This is just the beginning, I’m going for more!!!

Keep Running C.P.

Hi!

Today is one of those days that anxiety give me a hard time in so many levels. So I decided to go for a run. It was a struggle getting ready. It was should I go or not. I finally got ready and when for the run with my baby and the stroller. I ran in a slow pace than normal but I ran almost non stopping wish is my goal. I stop two-time in 1.66mi. In the middle on the run I check my progress on the app I use and it was pause. I was like damn I’m in 1.05mi already what the heck. The app stop in 0.51mi. What I did… I just keep running. My mind was set and nothing can stop me. Todays goal was a recovery run 1.25mi. Which I did and a little more. The mind is powerful. Never let anything or anybody stop you for what you want. Today was a hard day but I started it with the run. Some rocks during the day but It not gonna end bad. because the mind is powerful. I just want to attract positive vibes. Remove all the bad and turn the page. What is in the past, stay in the past. Live the present and enjoy it.

Today I also decided to watch a running documentary on netflix: From fat to the finish line. It was so inspiring I was almost ready to go for a run. I didn’t so tomorrow that’s the plan. I 100% Recommend it. If you are struggling with loosing weight like I am. Watch it. It feel like impossible is possible. Like a light in the end of the tunnel. It make me think if they can, I CAN. JUST KEEP RUNNING C.P.  

NOTE:

I also want to take advantage of this post and write THANKS for all the new followers. I never thought in a million year I would reach 200 and counting. Is amazing THANKS again!

Too good that I need to share!

(short)

Hi!

Recently I have started to practice kickboxing. When I don’t run, I do some type of exercise at home, that can vary.

Today I wasn’t in the mood to run so I decided to search a video workout of kickboxing for beginners. This video came across and I did it and I LOVE IT! It was 25 min in a good pace and easy to follow. Also straight to the point. That’s important to me because I can’t give the opportunity of the doubt came across my mind when I have the objective to do a workout.

It felt so great to use that video for my workout today. That’s why I want to share it!

My motivation strategy

Hi!

I wanted to write about this theme for so long. Because finding motivation to run or just to be active is hard for me. I have been working hard. I wanted to find a reason to do what I want to do. I wanted to find the stimulation and inspiration to move. I wanted to do it myself. And that’s what I did.

My motivation strategy

Starting with:

Setting a Goal:

This is the vision that I have in life. I need to compromise to what I set and make it happen.

Photos:

Those throwback photos when you look your best and your worst. This one hit me hard sometimes. Is hard for me to see those photos and realize that I have been there before, so that is the inspiration to step out of your comfort zone and change what it need to be change.

Videos:

This one I experience it recently. Yesterday for my run I was trying to look for excuses to not run. So I stopped myself and search a video in youtube. To find something inspiring. There was not one, not two ; there was more than I can imagine to see. Just for that reason I went for a run.

 

Quotes:

This one is the most I use. I can say that I’m a collector of motivational running quotes.  Those sentences and phrases give me the push that I need in the moment I search for it. Try it!!

 

Reading: 

In all my life I haven’t read like I’m reading these days. I read more about romance, but recently someone gave me the idea to read about running. So that is what I’m doing. Reading blogs, magazines and books.

 

Follow the inspiration:

There is a lot of platforms to follow other people. Follow that runner, that sport, that team. etc… They help you, believe me. When I saw those photos for example in instagram about the pace, the distance and the time. Is a good boost of passion that blow into my veins. I don’t know how to explain it. Hope you understand me.

 

Write down a log: 

Sometimes I use this platform to keep those memories about the journey I’m having. I also found an other good way to stay motivate and is via calendar. Yep a calendar. I write down the miles, when I run, when I rest or do any cardio..etc

 

Music:

Just listening the rhythm then feel it in your soul. And GO!

 


Question: What is your motivation stragety?
