Kickin it up a notch
So, today I feel like Emeril. I think it's the boot camp workout. It kind of makes me feel invincible. I like the way that feels. It pushes me to work harder and longer...I really need to kick it up a notch when I do boot camp. I was talking to my workout buddy this morning (aka my boss) and put my foot down that I am going to take this 5K business seriously, so she needn't ask me what I want to do on our gym days, I will be on the treadmill pushing myself. I know we only workout for about 20 minutes when we go (3 x's a week) but if I up my speed a bit I can cover more ground (figuratively since I'm on the treadmill). I think this will help. The further I can go each session, the closer I can get to that 3.2 mile goal, the better I will feel about signing up for the 5K here in town. It is officially a month from today, and is for such a good cause, how can I not push myself to make this happen?!?! It's to support anti-bullying in our local schools as well as healthy eating and exercise habits for our children. To find out more, you can check out the Dash for Dignity. I am psyched, I can do this. My husband has been great too. Every time I bring it up and if I sound like I am wavering at all, he tells me I can do it. I want my girls to see how hard I am working and see me reach this goal. It has been a long time coming.
