Happy Wednesday everyone! This week just happens to be one of the busiest for me out of the entire academic year. While I am incredibly happy it is almost over, there is another part of me dreading the impending workload. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind working hard. But it’s kind of like staring at a giant hill and wondering how the heck you are ever going to run up it in one piece.
You know what eases the stress/anxiety a little bit? Offering my first ever give-away! Great scott, am I ever excited! Not only is it totally awesome but it’s kind of like Christmas when you know you got someone a cool gift :)
Yes, this picture below magically becomes the picture above… How? I don’t know, like I said, magic
And what better to highlight your new Pivot shorts with than some hot pink laces?
By now you are probably asking yourself how you can win such good stuff – well, all you need to do is leave a comment about what motivates you when you REALLY DO NOT want to work out. I would say I have struggled with motivation off and on and I would love to hear some tips/secrets that you have. In fact, I am willing to reward you for them!
Also, check out Aspaeris on facebook and “like” them – it’s a great way to find out when they are running deals. Oh yeah, and because they are radical.
If you remember, Aspaeris are sponsoring my Ragnar team, The Panty Raiders. But this isn’t why I am doing the give-away. In fact, I purchased a pair a few months back and have been so happy I did. What are the major benefits? I love the effects of the compression without the “I can’t breathe” side effect. They are really comfortable and I have worn them both during runs and for recovery. In a pinch they also work great as “spanx”… not that I have ever had to do that or anything.
From the Aspaeris site:
We created Aspaeris™ to help protect female athletes from injury and enhance their performance with advanced compression apparel. As a female-centric company, we believe that the performance demands female athletes make on their bodies are unique. Our goal is to develop a deep understanding of those demands and create products that specifically elevate performance and protect her from non-impact injuries.
So, they rock basically. I am running the give-away until next Wednesday, May 2nd at 5 pm. Sorry, but I will only be able to ship to the U.S. Yay give-away! (yes, I am a big dork!)
In other news, I knocked out 6 miles yesterday. I felt pretty good during the run but later my back was killing me. This morning? Same story – sore back. I’m fairly certain I need to strengthen my core to support my running mileage – anyone ever have a similar issue?
Can’t wait to read all of your motivation tips!
