As cute as this article is, I think it also makes some really great points:
- Listen to your body! It will tell you when it has had too much, can be pushed harder and/or is injured. LISTEN!
- Don't let running become too predictable. So, don't run in the same place, same time or same distance every day. Mix it up a little...be spontaneous!
- Be flexible (even if that means running 2 half marathons instead of the one you planned).
- Appreciate that you CAN run! And love whatever distance and time you can accomplish!
- Even the sweetest relationship can go sour if you overdo it. Time apart, after all, is just as important as time together. If you need a break take it and try another exercise (like Body Pump, Zumba, Cycle). It will make running more fun!
Fun article and makes me get excited for the upcoming holiday. Evan and I never do anything too big, but we just enjoy setting some time aside for just the two of us!
Do you have any Valentines plans yet?
Today running and I took a little break and I did a 45-minute spinning class and lifted some weights with Evan. It was nice to switch things up today and like the article said: time apart is good. It is making me excited to run tomorrow!
As for dinner, I sautéed a few veggies (Kale and Baby Bella Mushrooms) and Italian Chicken Sausages.
I added a little of this soup:
Let it simmer for a little while
PERFECTION! Served with crusty bread.
Off to watch Gossip Girl and eating ice cream! Enjoy the night!
