The Girl in the Shoes

More than foot coverings, shoes are an expression of our selves, the demonstration of our attitude, and the outfit of our steps. So this is me, my obsession with footwear, and my love for life.

Final thoughts on the behavioral change

I set out to get back to running and set a goal of 10 miles per week. The behavior change project started in the middle of winter making it an uphill battle since I prefer running outside. I tried running on the treadmill early on but rarely got past 2 miles. I think it’s safe to say that I hate the treadmill. On days when I could run outside I went farther. A combination of my schedule and cold weather made this a rarity. I did incorporate more workouts from the Nike training club app which I love. I also completed the 10.5 Tough Mudder course and have a 5K (seems like a cakewalk now) planned for May 11th.

What I learned is that, for me at least, there are several factors that influence my workout decisions. Because I prefer running outside, weather can either facilitate or be a barrier exercise. My schedule can also be a barrier as I work and attend school full time. I’m usually tired when I get home so forcing myself to workout really depends on my level of exhaustion at the end of the day. Behavior change is hard, but can be done when barriers are minimized.

Toughmudder was yesterday. I’m obviously a masochist.

Permalink Does anyone know discipline? Can you facilitate an introduction for me. Worked out today. Ran only as a 5minute  warmup. Meh.
Permalink Working out sucks. I love it and I hate it. Treadmill runs suck. I do hate them, but I love my training club workouts. Toughmudder in 4 weeks. In need to get it together

Dang it. Where did that week go? I haven’t attempted a thing since the last post. Spring starts tomorrow. Hopefully the weather gets the memo and can get back to outside.

Permalink Treadmills suck. Plain and simple. I need the weather to get better ASAP because these indoor attempts aren’t fairing so well. :( atleast I got a workout in too!
