Motivation comes from different places . . .

. . .  sometimes fellow bloggers.

Robin, at Running Circles Around the Turtles, HERE - posts a Mindful Monday blog post and this week it was directed at me.  Thanks Robin!

Her simple question on Monday: What's Stopping You?  

My answer:  Nothing - that's right, nothing is stopping me!

I have been taking it easy lately, using work, weather and vacations as excuses.  But I really shouldn't be letting those "things" stop me.  Heck - I am NOT going to let those things stop me.

We have had subzero temp's which makes it pretty hard to run outside - 
so instead of not running , I will ride my bike trainer!   
Sunday evening:  12 miles on the bike trainer

When the weather is warmer, like the last couple of days when the 6 AM temps have been in the 20's - I have been getting out there and running in the morning and "enjoying" the weather!  
Monday morning:  4 mile run
Tuesday morning:  2 mile run

In the evening, if I want to watch TV, like tonight when the State of the Union speech was on TV, 
I rode my bike trainer.   
Tuesday evening:  12 miles on the bike trainer

Sometimes we simply need someone to say or write something that really speaks to us!  
Thanks Robin, for your Mindful Monday posts!

  1. That's the attitude that gives results.
    I am very good at excuses but I realize that I can as easily come with contra-excuses.
    Love 'the Turtles' blog.
