Another item off my
I'm going to play my 'I have three children' card.. which I promise I never really play.. in the fact it's hard for me to have routines for myself. But here's where we stand today.
Things that helped me stay on a min. 3 day a week schedule:
- c25k app, has a nice little set up to start you off/guide you
- running partner
- nice scenic area, wooded/lakeshore
- 8tracks app, keeps music interesting.. oddly enough Rhianna's Birthday Cake is fantastic to run to! who knew??
- posting my results and progress on facebook keeps me accountable, especially if I don't have a running partner that day
The biggest accomplishment in setting a routine is not letting any setbacks get you off track. I am not so much of an unmotivated person as I am a maker of an invisible set of rules that if I ever deviate from, my plan just gets thrown out the window! For this reason, and the last 4 weeks of running, I cross you off my list.. running routine!!
