Monday Motivators: Baby steps


Last Week: I went on a 2 mile walk over a few hills with a local mom and ran/walked 4 miles with Team Challenge at a similar pace as last week, for a total of 6 miles versus my goal of 5.

I did not do the meal planning, go grocery shopping or bother to take the last load of laundry out of the dryer. I did, however, spend an egregious amount of time researching daily activity trackers and running GPS watches. Good thing I have my priorities straight, right? Also, this is your fault Amy.

This Week: I’m going to up my goal to 6 miles for this week. Nothing hurt last week so this seems pretty manageable. The Benicia Run for Education will get me 5K towards my goal. It’s been awhile since anything was in the queue so I feel pretty excited, even though I plan to walk it.
