You might remember this old post where I wrote about how I like to give myself stars when I finish a planned workout as a motivational tool / reward system.
Monday night as I was putting a star on my calendar after finishing my strength training, I realized that as long as I did Tuesday's planned run, then I would have completed every single workout I had scheduled in January. Every. Single. One.
Well, there was no way I was going to blow the opportunity to accomplish that, so of course I gladly hopped on the treadmill on Tuesday, and after my 3 miles I gleefully placed my last star of the month on the calendar. Check out all those stars!
This never happens - I'm great at planning out a training schedule, but some (most) times I'm not so great at following through on the schedule... so it's a HUGE achievement, especially considering I had both work and personal travel throughout the month!!!
I'm so proud of myself that I still haven't flipped the page over to February yet, just so I can glance over and see all those glittery stars.
