Always push yourself harder!

 "I always loved running...it was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs."
- Jesse Owens

There's nothing like the feeling of euphoria that I feel every morning as my feet hit the pavement.
I've never felt so powerful or this pumped. I am so high on energy that I am literally bouncing off the walls. 

The past few weeks I've been power walking every other day around the Reservoir, meaning I was jotting down 11.5 miles every week. After three weeks I felt it was time to move it up a notch and push myself some more. I decided to start trotting around Central Park - which is not an easy task. Central Park is full of crazy twists and plenty of hills. 

My goal for this week to jot down 20 miles or more in my workout journal. So far I've got 10 miles down, 5 miles on Monday and another 5 miles today. It's supposed to rain hard tomorrow so I won't be able to do my trot around Central Park tomorrow, but you better believe I will be back on Thursday and Friday :) I am a girl on a mission and on a roll!

I almost forgot to mention that Karma has been on my side - I also found out today that I won two giveaways :) Eeeekkkk!! How's that for luck! Hmmmmmm... I wonder? Should I try my luck and play the lotto?? :)

Now I leave you loves with another one of my workout songs. I usually finish with this one, there's nothing better than a pumping song to push me to the end :)
Si Se Puede! Si Se Puede! I Can Do It! I Can Do It!

"Ask yourself: 'Can I give more?'. The answer is usually: 'Yes'."

  2. Woo for winning those giveaways.

    I'm so proud of you. You are doing so well with the running and having a good play list always helps push you.

    I wish I was more of a long distance runner. One day :)

  8. How cool is it that you've always loved running?! I, on the other hand, have always despised it. Love walking though! which some people find really strange since I hate running. But yeah, worst runner ever over here! I do 5 minutes and I feel like I'm dying. That's why the elliptical machines at the gym save me! Haha.

    Kiss to ya miss and congratulations! Trot on ;)
