I am a firm believer in the "work hard, play hard" philosophy and while I don't necessarily have the time to "play hard" - I am finding little ways to break up the monotony of my every day schedule and it really makes a difference. Knowing there is something fun to look forward to makes the boring bearable. :)
Here are my top 5 rewards for this week:
1. Moving my "office" to Starbucks and for a little pick me ups.
2. A daily run. I am starting my official training plan next weekend for the Oakland 1/2 Marathon and Big Sur International Marathon but it has been fun just going out and getting miles in for fun.
3. Delicious Cookies
4. The Bachelor. OMG, where has this show been my whole life?! It is fabulously bad in so many ways. I look forward to the two hours to just zone out and not think. (P.S. If anyone else is watching I want Emily to win!)
5. Registering for races! I LOVE having something fun to look forward to - it is that light at the end of the tunnel! Monday, registration for Levi's Gran Fondo opened and I am now officially registered for the 100 miler with 8000 feet of climbing! I can't say enough good things about this ride and I am beyond excited to participate again this year and take on the 100 mile challenge.
What little rewards do you give yourself to keep you motivated?
