Got up early to do some more training today. Holy crap it was super tough to get through it today, but I got it done and am now proud of myself for pushing through those tough moments and finishing!
Running is so tough …especially in the training phases where you have to really push past the comfort zone to get better, build endurance and get faster! It’s in those tough moments that I wish I had kept running all year. Out of all exercise, I find that running takes the most mental toughness. When you stop training, it doesn’t take long to lose all you have gained… gotta keep running all year from now on ?
Running is a great way to lose weight too…you burn a LOT of calories in a short time!
Have yourself an awesome day! …if you are looking for a challenge, give running a try! ?
How many of us would benefit from having a smaller waist size? I think the majority feel that it would be a good idea… especially those over 40! Gosh…being over 40, these pounds seem to slip onto the waistline so easily!!
One thing is for sure…taking time to do core work at least a couple times a week definitely makes a difference. By working those core muscles, they become smaller, stronger and more compact (thus a smaller waist size) it has definitely made a difference for me! The moves I am doing in the video are part of a 16 min Core workout that I do at least twice per week. It was very hard to start with, but I have been doing this for 3 months now and my core is already MUCH stronger!
The side benefits of having a strong core is that you are stronger and better in other sports and activities (everything from hockey, to running to horseback riding!) and have a stronger back and less prone to injury! My back pain is almost non-existent since working on my core regularly!
