Running Motivation & Accountablity on Wednesday Rewind

Running Motivation & Accountablity on Wednesday Rewind

Running Motivation

Race 3 NTC 5K Series 2012

Running motivation is deep in my soul.  On most days anyway. :)

I love looking back in the past for Wednesday Rewind.  It gives me a clear understanding of how far I’ve come.  This was actually a post from last year this time.

I decided to pull it out of the Fantabulous Day Blog vault.  That was the blog name back in the day. :)  This gives me running motivation like nothing else.

Back before my 1/2 Marathon, I wrote…..

I have eyes on other running blogs and I also listen to several running podcast.  There I can find lots of running motivation.  Since one of my goals with this blog is to inspire others, I thought I would start posting my training for the week.

I do post my runs on my 1/2 at 6000 ft page (currently removed), but I wanted to also post a quick update weekly on the home page.

This is just another way for me to hold myself accountable and to also, hopefully, inspire others to get moving.

I write on this blog for accountability reasons as well.  I always say “If you say it out loud, then you have to follow through”.  :) Writing in a journal is one thing, but blogging is taking journalizing to a greater level.  I’m sure all bloggers would agree.

I’ve been know to start things and then get demotivated, but this time I’ve committed to the Disney 1/2 marathon and I’m all in, mind, body, and soul.  I already paid my hefty entrance fee and am really looking forward to doing the run.

Running Motivation

After lunch time run.

Any who…. here is my week in review:

My main goals I accomplished for this week:

15 miles, the goal was 20.9 mile.

Long run was 6+, the goal was 7+.  I am OK with this 6+  That was darn good for me.

That’s great running motivation for me.  Don’t you agree?

My focus was on form and running longer.  I had been running for 30 mins at lunch and I have extended that to 40 mins.  I have been going a bit slow, but I can usually get in about 3 miles at a time, which is good.

Another week down and one week closer to January 13th.

Running Motivation

I had only run a couple of miles so I was feeling pretty good. Had to get the photo op in with my signature peace signs.

This was written in August of 2012.  Now look at me.  The Disney 1/2 Marathon is well under my belt and I’ve other race events in my sights.  You can check out how I did from my Disney 1/2 marathon race report.  Don’t kill yourself laughing.  If I can run Disney anybody can.

Now thats running motivation for ya!

Recharge  is the word for today and it is Wednesday Rewind day in Liz’s world.  Last year I was just getting to know my new work family and getting adjusted to my new job then.  One complete year later I am still employed with the same company and loving those very same people.

FD243 – Never Let Um See You Sweat..Yeah Right, Wednesday Rewind

I haven’t done a Wednesday Rewind in awhile.  I also haven’t been blogging as much as I use to. That’s because I have allocated my time differently.  That sounds so organized doesn’t it.  Well, not really.  The bottom line is I just don’t have time for blogging as much because I am working out aContinue Reading

FD221 – Reminiscing Challenge for Wednesday Rewind

Reminiscing is what I felt like for this Wednesday rewind. For some reason Christmas & snow really takes me back to my childhood.  I always seem to remember things that I hadn’t thought of in years.  As kids my brothers and I really enjoyed playing outside in the fresh winter snow. It always seemed soContinue Reading

FD215 – Wednesday Rewind & Reflections

Wednesday Rewind is here again. I didn’t post yesterday, because I was exhausted.  I haven’t even read any blogs in 3 days.  My work is sucking the life out of me.  I’ve been playing catchup from my vacation, which I don’t regret a bit.  I expected it to be a mess, but it was worseContinue Reading

FD #166 – Wednesday Rewind – Making Plans for the Future, Lego Land & Hershey Factory

I had to really think about what I was doing last year at this time.  I didn’t have a post for this day last year.  I actually went for months, only posting here and there during the long jobless winter months.  It could be because it was a time of uncertainty.  For some people thatContinue Reading

FD159 Wednesday Rewind #59 – It’s OK to Say No ….

It has to be a coninkadink that the number for today’s post is 159 and the one last year is 59.  Whod-a-Knewd.  Last week was the same.  What makes it so freaky is that I assign the  number for each Fantabulous day entry by the actual post and it has nothing to do with theContinue Reading

FD154 Wednesday Rewind #54 – Recognize Your Fan Club

I decided to try something different.  I wanted to take a look back to see what I was doing last year at this time.  Blogs are an amazing way to take a snap shot in time.  At this time last year, my blog was still in its infancy and my words were a little dry. Continue Reading
