I LOVE my life on the run. My days are never the same and are far from boring. As a yoga teacher I have an inconsistent and sporadic schedule. I workout, run, and get my yoga on whenever I can. Staying active is a lifestyle choice that I make everyday.
If it is a priority you will make it happen, if it’s not then you’ll make an excuse.
When it comes to running it is a love/hate relationship. I hate the anticipation of needing to get my run in, and I hate the first few minutes when my body is like “WHYYY”. But my list of loves is wayyyyy longer.
- I love the feeling of catching my second wind.
- I love when my pace matches the beat of the song.
- I love the runners high when I feel invincible.
- I love looking forward to listening to my playlist.
- I love feeling accomplished when my run is done.
- I love the results my body gets from running.
I am a big believer in setting goals! It is very important to stay motivated. Creating plans to achieve those goals will pave the road to success. My current fitness goals this year:
- Hold a one minute straight leg handstand.
- Run 5 miles with ease. I am a short distance runner so 5 miles will be a huge progress for me.
- Become more flexible in my back-bends.
- Achieve a press up handstand!
Tools to achieve my fitness goals:
- Map my run app- This app keeps you motivated by tracking your pace & route. You can compare your runs & track your progress.
- Awesome playlists- I change up my playlists about once a week to keep things fresh. Sometimes it’s upbeat, other times it’s chill. Who says you can’t run to Jack Johnson?!
- Written out workout plans- I write out my workout plans a few days out which leaves me with no excuses.
- Lightweight activewear- The Saucony Life on the Run Collection is perfect. It’s versatile and allows me to achieve my goals in style. Some days I will go from a morning run, to meditation, teaching yoga, and running errands without having to change outfits thanks to this collection.
- A dream board- Make a poster board of your goals/dreams and put it on your wall. Wake up every morning with your goals staring you in the face.
