Like many of you know I am a new runner. Already I have gained a HUGE appreciation for many simple things. My goal for the next 5 days is to spotlight what I have already gained a better appreciation for!
While on my first outside run I really took note of all the beauty that surrounded me, as I ran in the beautiful world we live in. I looked at all the trees in bloom, the green grass, the birds flying, the lawn mowers mowing, the children playing, and the dogs barking.
I myself find that I get way to busy in my day to day life to slow down and notice these things. I find I'm to busy getting kids here and there, running late, or annoyed by things around me. So the first spotlight goes to the beauty we have to enjoy our runs in! It sure beats the treadmill :)
What are some of your favorite things you have seen on your runs?
Today for my workout I worked my arms and abs along with 30 minutes on the elliptical. My workout today burned approximately 488 calories. It was a hard workout to mentally get through today. I didn't want to be there and went with a headache! After I felt 10x's better and was so glad I went. My daily caloric intake today was 1538. I am sure as I start running harder and longer, I will need to up my calories. However for the workout load I'm doing now I feel full satisfied :)
