This week started out really tough for me! Saturday I had a syncopal episode again(I fainted). It was not related to anything that we can pin point?? But Sher thinks I am maybe over doing it with my outdoor runs this summer…This means more time with the Dread MILL…AHHHHH!!!!!!
Monday I ran a mile…yep only a mile…it was hard and boring. My energy and BP are both were both still low so I did not push too much. Today is a yoga day; 2 classes, so I am forgoing my run…Insert HAPPY FACE! lol…I did mention I HATE the treadmill right?
This got me thinking though; in order to stay on track, I will run Thurs-Sun on the Dreadmill??!! How am I going to do that? Thank goodness I am a self starter and I read Runner’s World!
Mental Prep is the key…
1st I am dialing in my last great treadmill workout from my memory bank( a tip from this months Runner’s World)
2nd I have set a color and motto to focus on…Orange things ( I think of sun shine, warmth and summer yummies when I see orange, plus it is the Sacral Chakra) and my motto “NO NEGATIVE THOUGHTS”
and Lastly and most simply I remind myself that anything my body accomplishes is better than most people:) Right Cathy?? (I hope your Shoulder is feeling GREAT! soon…hang in there)
Setting yourself up to succeed no matter the workout is one way to Keepskinny and Sane:)
