Inspiration Board

I’m not sure my readers are aware of this, but I workout primarily in my garage. Back in August of 2011, I was running a lot on the treadmill in my garage. I think I booked about 25 miles in a month. That may not sound like a lot, but considering that before that I wasn’t running at all, it was a lot for me. During this time, I made an inspiration board and placed it above my treadmill so that when I would run, I would see what I wanted to accomplish and remain focused during my runs. I can tell you that this board helped me squeeze out an extra mile every so often because I would hype myself up in my own head just because I was staring at my inspiration board. Let’s fast forward to January 2012, when I stepped foot back into my garage and found my inspiration board yet again. I had totally forgotten about it and I was pretty stoked to find it in there.
Now that I’m not running as much, but rather doing aerobics and weight lifting, when I look over at my treadmill and see the board, I can usually pump out the last reps of a set and really concentrate on my form because I see on that board everything that I am working towards. When I am lifting, I imagine myself looking like Jennifer Nicole Lee one day. I imagine being on the cover of an Oxygen magazine. I imagine all my dreams coming true. All of these thoughts occur, just because I’m staring at this…
