Running in the Loveland Lake 2 Lake Triathlon
Hence the reason I took the day off Thursday. It is very hard for me to take a day off, but they are just as important as workout days for your body to stay healthy and be able to fight off cold & flu season. If you're Type A like me, please remember to treat yourself to a "nothing" day once in a while. You might feel guilty, but you will be better off in the long run.
I wasn't able to visit a new gym this week because of my work schedule. However, I did run someplace new and I highly recommend throwing in a change of scenery if you are an outdoor activist. Our daughter had a dance performance at the Butterfly Pavilion Saturday morning, then she volunteered with Rocky Mountain Puppy Rescue in the afternoon. So I used those couple hours to run in Westminster and even though the wind was brutal, I really enjoyed being on new terrain. Plus I grew up in Broomfield, so I almost felt like I was running in my old hood - although SO much as changed!
How are your fitness goals coming? Have you signed up for anything yet? I'm in for a few things: Boston Marathon, Ride the Rockies, Elephant Rock and Loveland Lake 2 Lake Triathlon. I haven't looked beyond June yet :) As always, Email me or post a message through Facebook and Twitter if you have questions, comments and suggestions!
Tip to avoid munching at the "community/junk" table at work: Think to yourself: "Did I bring it. Is that mine?" The answer is no, so don't take any of it.
