Motivational Monday: 11.13 Miles!

Hi fitness family! Hope you’ve had a ‘FitBlitzing’ weekend? Today on the trail i managed 4 laps (11.13 miles) and kept my pace around 4 miles per hour for a total of 2 hours 45 minutes! πŸ’ͺ🏼

I kept my ‘Walk 130 bpm’ music playlist on for the whole duration, as it’s like a pulsing metronome as i push myself to keep up. I put my right foot down on the bass drum (first beat) and my left foot down on the snare drum (beat 2), and as it’s the same persistent beat all of the time, it’s a real workout when a steep hill appears and you have to keep the same beat but with much more effort…You just keep pumping away until you hope a down hill or flat section will start, lol! 🀣

If it didn’t feel so good, healthy and so rewarding for the body, it could be classed as some form of torture, lol. It’s like being chained to a treadmill for nearly 3 hours with the speed set to 4 mph…And like the movie ‘Speed’ if you slow down below that speed then you’ll blow up, or at least fail your goal! 😨 So you pound away across the trail (uphill and downhill) trying to get to the end where you can disarm the bomb timer! But WOW do you feel good afterwards for achieving it!! πŸ˜€ πŸ’ͺ🏼

Oh and achieving the ‘Perfect Week (All Activity)’ award badge for last week was a great motivator too! πŸ’ͺ🏼

Let’s ‘FitBlitz’ 2022 together!! πŸ’ͺ🏼

  1. YOU JUST DON’T GIVE UP! You’re so right–with the wrong attitude, it could feel like torture. But you don’t quit. And you maintain a positive attitude, even on the hills. Thanks for the example of perseverance and hope!
