Inside of a week to the Marine Corps Marathon and I’m pretty excited. I’m almost in disbelief I made it through 15 weeks. Last week I dealt with some knee issues so to avoid any setbacks or injury I focused on bike and yoga (well, and because Jake told me to!). I’m still going to take it easy this week and the stress of work has come and gone so ready to focus on what’s next. Quick recap of Week 15:
- Monday: 30 minutes bike
- Tuesday: Sports Massage – ooh, ow, yes
- Wednesday: Personal Training w/Jake – upper body
- Thursday: REST
- Friday: Yoga Tone @ Mind Your Body Oasis
- Saturday: 60 minutes bike
- Sunday: Yoga Sculpt at Core Power (thank you Class Pass!)
It’s been a little hard to stay calm but I’ve worked hard these past few months and the marathon prize is just around the corner. As I move towards this milestone race I often carry my personal motivational mantras with me. Whether it’s just repeating over and over in my head or have it in hand somehow I believe they are truly helpful.
One of those mantras is “Just Keep Going” which I listed here the last Friday Five where we themed motivation. On a more personal level it’s simply “Faith”. I have a few pieces I wear with this one word and helps keep me grounded and focused in all matters of life.
Recently I discovered Words to Sweat By which offers motivational fitness jewelry and humorous fitness apparel. When Dana, CEO and designer, reached out to me I was so excited to be introduced to them. Given where I was in the marathon training cycle the timing couldn’t have been better – feeling I needed all the motivation I could get. Disclaimer: I was provided with 2 wrap bracelets to try, any opinions of course are my own.
