Behavior of the week
“Company” Running alone is great and many people use some kind of noise to fill the miles, it might be music, podcasts or talk radio. I choose to run without any of the noises that aren’t naturally occuring. I love to hear my feet crunch on the ground, the wind blow, the cars honk, the leaves rustle and my breath pounding. The thought of going outside and listening to inside things seems to defeat the purpose of going outside.
If the company of yourself and nature doesn’t sound great or satisfying, then find a partner. Mitch (another teacher at my school) has willinging joined up on my lunch runs and even increased my pace. It has been great to push each other during my 20 minute break from my job at lunch. We come back sweaty and head to out next classes ready to rock and roll feeling great and like we actually got to do something outside.
Don’t stop now, you can do it. If you are just beginning your #moveoutside365, thanks and keep on going. It’s just one day at a time.
The boys and I before the snows came.
