A couple weeks ago we had an interesting adventure. Now before I share this story I need to point out something that is important to understanding our perspective on training. My friend Karrie puts it best when she says, "There are 'competers' and then there are 'completers'...we are completers." So while we take completing our miles pretty seriously, and we push ourselves to get faster, we don't always stress if our times are not perfect. We realize that it is more important to enjoy what we are doing, or we might be apt to quit doing it altogether.
My inspiration for this week's blog was my wish to share how you, too, can get your exercise in and still have fun. I have had two friends share with me in the last few weeks that when they start new exercise, within three months they are already bored and are giving up on that form of exercise. What you can see from what I do is that I am constantly trying to mix things up so that it is never boring. I have been consistently exercising for almost three years now and I have never felt the need to quit--I am having too much fun! So mix it up, find new places to move, and you will find it is a lot easier to stick with your fitness plans.
