Happy Motivational Monday … I mean Tuesday … holy cannolis time flies by, but going out of order is allowed every once in a while right?
My birthday was great, thanks for all of the love yesterday! The day started out with a [very slow starting] recovery run – 2 easy granny miles – while hubs made surprise cupcakes for me! The cupcakes I left on the plan last week? He attempted to bake for the first time and make me White Chocolate cupcakes like the ones I got from Crumbs…swoon! And after slowly rogging and then running I felt like I’d worked out the lactic acid build up from Sunday. I’m in way better shape than I was after my first half.
I’ll have a post for you about the day tomorrow with deets on our trip to the ICE! Exhibit on Orlando!
This week’s Featured Sneakers belong to my pal Courtney who is also Pretty Muddy sister of mine! She’s been working with those of us who are bloggers who ran the mud race – we also visit each others’ blogs for support now! She’s a mom who makes no excuses to work on being healthy and fit so that she can set an example for her beautiful little girl!
Name: Courtney Norman
What is your favorite way to workout/exercise: Crossfit. I’m kinda addicted.
What is your #1 cheat food: Frozen Yogurt… with Sprinkles.
What advise do you have for those starting on a fitness journey: Celebrate EVERY victory. The journey can seem so long and daunting, so celebrating a pound lost, or a 5lb PR on lifting, or a 30 second PR on a race… those things make it seem much more rewarding!
Dream destination race/location: Anything RunDisney. another obsession of mine.
Favorite inspirational fitness personality/trainer: Oh, this is a hard one. I’m gonna have to say Rich Froning. He is the winner of the 2011 AND 2012 CrossFit games. Don’t know him- Google him, right now. Then come back and thank me.
Workout apparel must have (+brand): I love my Reebok CrossFit Nano sneakers. I’m also obsessed with my Marika Fitness capris – they have ruffles.
Motivational motto/quote: You want me to do something… tell me I can’t do it. -Maya Angelou
