Fifty what you say. Today I reached the 50 mile mark towards my goal of 150! The last few days I've really had to make myself walk. I'm still suffering from my sinus problem (which has turned into an annoying cough and runny nose instead of pressure, I must be getting better) and I've had very little energy. After I walk I've had no energy left. I know it's important for me to walk (health wise as well as meeting my goal) but it's so hard when you are totally exhausted later.
I've found that I can energize myself with the right music. I have a few different things I like to walk to. To really get my tired self going I have to listen to the soundtrack from High School Musical 2. I confessed this to Mickey and he told me he listens to it everyday at work. I felt better about listening to it. It's really gets you going, plus it's fun to sing to. I also have a play list with various artists such as Dixie Chicks, Faith Hill, Shania Twain, Kelly Clarkson, Sheryl Crow, Barenaked Ladies, and some other artists. This list I have set with a slower start and then the song "Get Ready to Run" starts the faster music after the warm up. I do tire of this one. I probably need to update it. I also have a play list of songs from the soundtracks of the Pirate movies. Hans Zimmer is brilliant. The list is made up of the more moving songs and no Kraken. This is great when I want to walk 45 minutes on the treadmill. What do you like to listen to when you work out?
