This Monday’s motivation: partner up.
Over the holiday break I had the pleasure of having my mom, Norak, as my running buddy. This 50+ year-old was a great match for me. Nice pace and we were knocking out 5 – 8 milers each time. I always thought I was the “solo runner” type but my mom really showed me it’s OK to partner up. In fact, as much as I claim to be an independent workout enthusiast, I realize that the hus and I workout almost every day together. I typically knock out a morning run by myself but pair up in the evening for the gym. My favorite weekend “workout” is when we load up the car and head off for a hike. Sometimes having someone to talk to or hold you accountable makes working out go by incredibly fast and easy.
This week I challenge you to find a workout partner. It could be going to a class with a pal or simply going on a short walk. I think you may like the addition to your routine.
If you had to pick a celebrity to “buddy up” with on workouts, who would it be and why? You know, Ryan Gosling has been working out a lot lately, mmmm.
