Motivation Monday #Running

Hello Monday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Brian and I did. We spent most of Satuday at the locals farmers market. I'll post pictures soon! If you have been following along you know that I am training for my first half marathon. My first race was suppose to be the Nashville Women's Half Marathon in September with my bestie Whitney, however being a responsible adult got in the way. You can catch up here! Today, I wanted to share my training summary thus far. I have had a few set backs both mentally and physically. My knees are popping like an old persons! Last Monday night I began a lower body workout to help build muscle to pull stress from my knees....I woke the next morning with major soreness in my hammies. Perhaps I over did it?!? When I began to run that day my legs felt like sand bags weighing me down; I decided to take a day off to prevent further injury.

My workout summary for May

10 Workouts
42.0 Total distance (Miles)
7.3 Hours
3,896 kcal burned

My workout summary for April

8 Workouts
32.1 Total Distance (Miles)
5.85 Hours
2,944 kcal burned

I should have of had 24 workouts and 90 miles logged by now... I'm still incredible proud of myself. Running and I still have a love hate relationship, but I can tell you I love running way more outside now then on that treadmill. I use to be the opposite. This week starts week 7 of training.
Get motivated people! Let's Move!!

 "You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement."
- Steve Prefontaine

What's motivating you this week??
