If I am going to continue to be honest here on my blog, then I will admit it right now. Last week I did nothing.
Ok, I walked J to school, dragging my feet the whole way, feeling like I had been hit by a truck. I told you I was in a funk last week and I truly had no motivation to do anything. I managed to read a couple of books, drink a lot of hot chocolate and sulk. Yes, I sulked.
Then, Tuesday night the skies opened up, and the clouds dispersed, as the sun was setting, I could almost feel the warmth moving in on me. I went to bed with a plan to run the next morning.
Wednesday, the day I should have posted this but got sidetracked, I awoke to sunshine and happiness. I strapped on my running shoes, walked J to school and turned on my MP3 player in my phone. Within two minutes I was running and feeling better. Not a word of a lie, with every step I felt better and better. I ran for 3km only stopping to clean up after the dog. It was one of those runs that I could have just kept on going.
Whether it was the sun, warmth, happy people everywhere or the music on my phone something just connected. And hooray it has carried through to today. And to celebrate this, I wanted to have another little giveaway. I want to share with you all the music that makes me run. And not just a jog, but a run.
This is what I listened to last Fall when I ran the CIBC Run for the Cure, this is what I pipe through the basement speakers when I am running on the treadmill and this is what pumps through my phone when I am out running with Apple and Mickey (the dog).
Cardio Grooves. This three CD set is full of blood pumping, feet moving music that dates (me) back to the mid to late 1980’s. I simply cannot walk when I have this music pumping, I just can’t.
I will be giving away one set to one lucky reader. Simply leave me a comment and tell me what you like listening to when you are working out and if you don’t work out tell me what you listen to in your car, guaranteed if you played this you would start working out after.
I will randomly draw a number on Saturday morning (June 6th) and post the winner.
p.s. I am sitting in my backyard enjoying the sunshine as I type. Sunshine truly is an awesome thing.
