One in a Row!

I've been looking for my motivation for a while.  Seems it just up and left me about ten days ago.  Haven't been able to drag my butt to the gym - could barely drag my butt to work. 

I found motivation's replacement - a challenge.  Not to say I'm a competitive type (stop snorting Mom, Bill, Nebalee, Deejo, Junior, Digger, Ashinator, Monster, etc...), but sometimes, in the absence of motivation a good ole double dog dare will work.

I didn't get a double dog dare, but I did receive an email from 24 hour fitness for the 30 day challenge.  No motivation, but I can't back down from a challenge, so I signed up.


Only, I don't look like this.  But you get the idea.

And received my first challenge via email this morning: get on the treadmill and sprint for 1/8 of a mile, recover for 1/8.  Repeat five times.

Because of my knee, I substituted the elliptical machine for the treadmill, but I did complete the challenge after Nebalee and I did body boot camp.

I suppose one in a row is a good start. :)
