Happy Sunday everyone! As I run through my calculations of miles completed it’s always a pleasure to see the “miles remaining” is less than the “miles completed”. Although the journey is still a long one and there are plenty of adventures to be had, it is positive.
I have an Instagram friend, Dr. Linda Sinnott, who went on a big life transformation to loss weight. It’s funny because she and I are very similar; both in our 50s, yoga instructors and love fitness. She worked out for 365 days straight, making a commitment to herself to live healthier. It’s been fun watching her progress. As with anything that is worth fighting for, you have to make a commitment and work at your goal. You have to be consistent. Make an effort to be present and show up for whatever it is you are attempting. Some days the results are pretty and other days just butt ugly. Eventually, the effort will pay off…at least that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
I decided to take a page out of her play book and complete some miles every day. I was in the gym some days and then decided to time myself on Saturday with a two-mile run. I have been continuing with strength and endurance training with hopes of getting a better pace during the winter months. Happy to report:
Not too bad if I do say so..lol. I walked a mile after then ran a final mile for a total of 4 miles on Saturday. The week was a good one. I rode the indoor bike 10.5 (11 on one day) each day with the exception of 5 miles on Friday for a total of 62 miles for the week. I love the morning when the sun is just up on the trail.
I have completed 5880.44 with 5434.56 miles gratefully remaining. I’m still tracking, still working and still earning every mile. I hope this post finds you in a great state of mind; present, full of hope and still tracking. Happy Miles to You!!
This song came on for the second mile on Saturday and is great for the pace….
