Random musings and activities of a 30 something mom, potential sprint triathlete, vegetarian, dog and cat owner, and a evolving urban homesteader just trying to do the right thing in life for my daughter and the world around us. If the blog seems random, it's because life is and hits us all at 100mph.

PostHeaderIcon Drop and give me 20! if you can..............

It's been awhile.  I know.  Nothing in particular.  Summer of 2010 was full of injury and activities that weren't related to tris or running.  It was my most non-running summer in years.  Of course, it was full of lots of other good things, so no complaints here.

Over the weekend, I set up my sprint tri-training for the next 4 months.,  I'm exhausted just looking at it!  A twist from 2009 I'm including in my schedule is the challenge from this site: One Hundred Push Ups .  Both BF and I did the initial test last night.  The rule was to do as many as we could without a lot of extra effort (not to exhaustion) and maintaining good form.  I'll embarass myself and share my results: 14. 

This is the first time I've felt comfortable sharing a workout with someone and hopefully we hold each other accountable. I believe we both expressed concerns of pride, quitting the program and the other completing it.  Neither of us wants our pride hurt, and that in itself is a good motivator for many training and races for me in the past!

What about you?  Drop and give me 20!  if you can....................

Quotes as I come across them......

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, an hour, a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it last forever.” ~~~Lance Armstrong

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." ~~~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I like running because it's a challenge. If you run hard, there's the pain----and you've got to work your way through the pain. You know, lately it seems all you hear is 'Don't overdo it' and 'Don't push yourself.' Well, I think that's a lot of bull. If you push the human body, it will respond." ~~~Bob Clarke, Philadelphia Flyers general manager, NHL Hall of Famer. (Will-Weber's "Voices From the Midpack" chapter.)

The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.~~~Denis Watley

Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly. ~~~Thomas H. Huxley (1825 - 1895)
