Monday Motivation and Happy Drinking

Posted by CheapRunnerRhoda

Happy Monday everyone! Welcome to a fresh week!


Sometimes the weekend happens and come Monday we need some motivation.

Friday, I came off of running 7 days straight so I took the weekend off. I listed the first 4 runs the other day. Here are the last 3.


Tuesday – 6km/3.75 m = 32:06 min - 5:22 km pace/8:34 m pace

Wednesday – 10km/6.25m = 54:34 min – 5:27 km pace/8:43 m pace

Friday – 8km/5m = 44:47min – 5:36 km pace/8:57 m pace


As you can see, they got progressively slower as the week went on. I took that as a I sign to take a break.

With that being said, it is now Monday, and I feel ready to hit the pavement again and throw down some miles!

Here are some things that are going to be my motivation this week:





One last thing I’ll leave you with for the day…. I came across this on the weekend and I thought it was very interesting…


What is your motivation today or this week?


Do you drink water as soon as you get up in the morning?

    I think I love every single Eleanor Roosevelt quote there is. Nice work on your runs,and it's good that you recognized when you needed a break!

  2. I think it's really good to vary up your pace to prevent injury esp now that it's summer and it's getting HOT! At least here it is...I'm not sure what summer is like in Canada.

    So even though I am involuntarily switching up my pace it's good lol. The weather has been warm at times which hasn't helped my pace but it's really ok with me.
