New bike PR (by 2… I barely made it ha)!
If you are looking for a new 45-minute PR on the Peloton, try Olivia Amato HIIT & Hills from 12/13/21. It was SO so hard. Even her recoveries are rough.
I am very thankful for this fan that I keep 6 inches away from my head during the ride so I don’t overheat.
Beck is always so happy when Andrew can Facetime on his break at work really quickly.
We did many exciting things like the carwash (Skye’s personal favorite).
And the mall play place.
And that wraps up our day other than the Pretzel Bites that we ate together at the mall:)
I know I have blogged about this idea in the past, but this is truly the thing that motivates me more than anything to run (or make any good choice throughout the day).
When I first wake up I am usually grumpy/tired and my body feels creaky/stiff before I head outside to run or push the start button on my Peloton. The thing that gets me to do it, even though staying in bed sounds so much easier—> I know with every single cell of my body that mood follows action and that is what gets me to do the action that I’m not particularly excited about. A good mood isn’t just going to happen. Endorphins are just going to naturally show up. I’m not just going to magically be happy. I have to make the actions myself to get to the mood that I want. The behaviors just have to happen to get to the mood that I desire and there is no way around this fact for me!
Off to do a speed workout (I am doing a short version of theirs) with my friends for the first time since September! Chasing after people is my favorite way to get faster.
PS This gave me all of the feels… And it inspired me to do ‘what works, what’s fun, what just feels right’ this year with my running and I cannot wait.
Mood follows action… true for you? Example please!
Do you facetime often? Who do you facetime the most with?
